It is when we stumble or fail, that we value and appreciate the grace of God. We fall face down and confess our sins and receive His grace with a grateful heart. But as time passes and we have been walking faithfully in the path of righteousness for some time, it is then we get familiar with grace. We take our success for granted often forgetting where we started. We become judgmental and look upon others with contempt. In 1 Corinthians 15:10, Paul said, “I am what I am by the grace of God” attributing his success to the grace of God. He is careful to mention that he was the worst of sinners- a persecutor of the church. Let us never in the best of days forget the grace of God as we did in our worst

“…there was no room in the inn.” Luke 2:7

Joseph and Mary like any of us must have prayed for a room in the inn. And the answer to their prayer was a “No.” Only a manger became available, and they had to take it.

The implications are deep. Just because I pray for something doesn’t mean I am going to receive it—any more than Joseph and Mary received a room in the inn. I’m sure they prayed for God to do the impossible and find them a place to stay. God answered their prayer in an odd way. This evidently did not shake Joseph and Mary’s faith that God let them be left out in the cold… Prayers of righteous people are always effective (James 5:16) but not always in the way we expect. How do we respond when God answers differently? Is our faith shaken?
