Psalm 90:17
Let the favour of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!

G.W. Knight said, “When a person works an eight-hour day and receives a fair day's pay for his time, that is a wage. When a person competes with an opponent and receives a trophy for his performance, that is a prize. When a person receives appropriate recognition for his long service or high achievements, that is an award. But when a person is not capable of earning a wage, can win no prize, and deserves no award--yet receives such a gift anyway--that is a good picture of God's unmerited favour. This is what we mean when we talk about the grace of God.”

Grace is God’s doing. And God did it when he sent Jesus to die and rise from the dead, on our part. Though you and are not capable of earning a wage, can win no prize, and deserves no award, yet receive such a gift anyway, demonstrates God’s saving grace. Jesus took the wages of sin when he died and was awarded the prize of victory when he rose from the grave, on our part. The true picture of God's unmerited favour – his grace – is our salvation.

However, God’s grace does not only save us, God’s grace empowers us to serve. God’s grace establishes the work of our hands. God’s grace is sufficient.

I’ve been through some intense times of demotivation in my life. Times when I’ve been unmotivated to go to work or perform my daily tasks, unmotivated to speak to people and even unmotivated to do home chores. Yet, the show must go on! You know that feeling? When you wake up in the morning with no energy to face the day, but still need to get on with the job.

It was on one of these mornings that the Holy Spirit led me to Psalm 90:17: “Let the favour of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” Indeed, I needed motivation to get the job done, but only God could motivate me. I needed his favour on my meagre effort, to establish the work of my hands. His grace is his favour.

It’s at times like these that I’ve learned how important it is to put self aside and humbly seek the grace of God. If grace is God’s doing, then I need God to work through me today. His grace has saved me from sin and death and his grace establishes the work of my hands.

God-tracking is depending upon God’s unmerited favour

It’s because you show me favour, through Jesus, that I know that you’ll establish the work of my hands!

O Lord, I’ve run out of steam. I’m threadbare and rundown. I need your help to continue. Thank you for your grace. If grace is your doing, then Lord, do this work through me. Thank you for your favour. It’s because you show me favour, through Jesus, that I know that you’ll establish the work of my hands! Praise you for your unmerited favour. Today, O Lord, I commit my work to you, I commit my relationships to you, and I commit every moment of my future to you. Your grace is enough. Amen.”
