SCRIPTURE: But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. – 1 Corinthians 15:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s grace makes great.
One prominent character in Scriptures whose life is worthy of emulation is Apostle Paul. He was a late comer who became a front liner. He did great things for God. He had great insight in God’s Word that even Peter the apostle who knew Christ before him testified.
What made apostle Paul who was a late comer to be ahead of the apostle who ate with Jesus?
It is the grace of God!
Now, what does grace do in a man’s life?
1.Grace makes us stand in the faith and not give up on God.
The enemy specializes in questioning and confronting our faith in God. He specializes in making you give up on God, especially in situations where expectations are being delayed. In such case, it is grace that makes us stand like Job by being strong in the LORD.
2.Grace makes us stand when all other people are on the ground. (Psalm 91:7-8)
This means that when everyone is on the floor, you will stand. For example, there may be a massive retrenchment in your place of work but grace will make your case different.
I decree the release of that grace on your life today in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: God’s grace makes great.
1. Ask God daily for His grace upon your life.
2. Connect to God’s grace on the spiritual leadership where you serve God.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the endowment of Your grace upon my life. I refuse to live the life of disgrace LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
