Releasing The Power Of Grace


We are not achievers; we are privileged receivers. We become what we become in life by God’s grace. If you think it is by your power you’ve gotten everything you own, you would only be deceiving yourself. God’s grace is real which is multiplied by the knowledge of the word of God. I love grace because where your efforts cannot take you in hundred years to come, it can take you there within a blink of an eye.

Esther, a slave who became a queen is an example of grace; Nehemiah, a cupbearer who suddenly became governor is also a good example of God’s grace. Joseph was sold into slavery. And then suddenly he became a prime minister from prison—that could only be God’s grace.

The sad thing is that most preachers defined grace as unmerited favor. That’s not a true definition. As a result of this, many hide under grace and disobey God. Grace has been grossly abused.

When you talk about grace also talk about obedience because grace doesn’t just jump on people. It’s provoked by complying with the laws of the scriptures.

Joseph an exemplar of grace is also a symbol of righteousness. Remember, he fled fornication. So, because Joseph obeyed God, grace was attracted to him. There is always a because for the release of grace. Grace is not for free.

Abraham who experienced grace beyond is an epitome of obedience. Prompt obedience is what earned Abraham supernatural blessings. When God told Abraham to circumcise the male in his household, he obeyed; when God told Abraham to offer Isaac as a sacrifice, he obeyed; and when he was commanded to leave his kindred and go to an unknown land, he obeyed. When you claim the blessings of Abraham, also don’t forget the commitment of Abraham to tithing and sacrificial giving. So, there is nothing as unmerited favor.

“If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham (follow the footsteps of Abraham)”John 8:39

Some pastors have impregnated young ladies in the church because of grace. Many believers are still struggling with sin because of grace. Don’t abuse grace to promote your disobedience. Grace is obedience to the commands of God. God has favorites. Become one of his favorite children by obeying His commands.

Personal Responsibility 💕

Personal responsibility. God does not bless groups, He blesses individuals; God does not promote group, He promotes individuals (See Revelation. 22:12). My covenant work and your covenant walk with God are highly personal. An individualistic approach will always result in a realistic supernatural result. Everyone is responsible for the outcome of his life. Until you stop blaming somebody and start holding yourself accountable for your actions, don’t expect a change of position. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah, that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. (Isaiah.51:2). Don’t blame God, blame yourself; don’t question God, question yourself. God is ever faithful than you and I (See Numbers.23:19).

Consistency. Consistency is the rule of the game. Tireless, undying, unrepentant obedience is the master key to the continuous flow of supernatural rewards. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed (or blessed indeed). (James. 1:25). It is one thing to be blessed; It is another thing to keep the flow of blessing running over our lives continuously. Solomon tasted the blessings, but that took him away from God and his kingdom was crashed. Caleb followed God to the end; Paul followed God to the end; Jesus obeyed God to the end. My prayer for somebody reading this is that: may you run this race to the end!

Some folks have served God for 5 years, but they are no longer on track; while after 50 years some folks are still panting after God tirelessly and the results are shown. Listen to this: where you are is smaller than where God is taking you. Don’t give up. Never backed down. Keep pressing on.

a compass illustrating time and season

God is a God of time and season. He makes everything beautifully blossom in its time (See Ecclesiastic.11:3). You can’t climb a tree from the top. Trying to move before God’s timing is always like a curse. The fig tree went ahead of its time, and it was cursed from its root. You need patience; you need endurance. You can’t climb stairs from the first step; you need to start from the ground floor. There is no shortcut in life. You can be rich and not be blessed. The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. (Proverbs 10:22). The blessing that comes from the Lord is ‘sorrow-free,’ ‘sickness-free’ blessings Weeping is not permitted to go beyond a night and there is an appointed time for every vision (See Psalm.30:5; Habakkuk.2:3). Has your weeping gone beyond a night? Hear the good news: your weeping days have expired!

Welcome to a world of unlimited possibility. According to the ‘Abrahamic’ covenant, every child of God is ordained to reign as either king or a nation. Abraham is a nation; Isaac is a nation; Jacob is a nation. Jesus came to connect you and me to the blessings of Abraham (See Galatians.3:14). That means you’re an individual as a nation. Understand this: you are meant only for the top in your field. In your business, career, finance, and academic you are meant for the top only. The scripture says you will be the head and not the tail (See Deuteronomy.28:13). As long as you met the condition, the result will show. All you need to do is to hearken and obey. As far as God is concerned, your making has already been made (prepared) and it’s obtainable by you by faith (See 1Cor. 2:9; Hebrews.11:6).

Wait a minute, information is the key to the realm of possibility. Possibility is enhanced when you are thoroughly scripturally informed and well informed in your field. The more materials of men and women with proven results that you consult and absorbed the more closer you are to the world of unlimited possibility. So, knowledge increased our confidence in possibility.

marriage as an institution ordained by God

Marriage is an institution ordained by God (See Psalm.68:6). If the scripture says he that finds a wife, find a good thing, they that seek God shall not want any good thing and God has given us – made ready – all things about life and godliness (See Proverbs.18:22; Psalm.34:10; 2 Peter.1:3 ). That means your marital destiny is ready-made in heaven. Somebody reading this will prosperously marry this year! God will connect you to your heavenly ordained husband and wife and married blissfully in Jesus’ name! However, I am marrying this year and no devil or hell can stop it.

Wrapping things up, the mentality you possess determines the results that you’ll access (what your life will become). Failure thoughts equal failure life; breakthrough mentality equals breakthrough reality. Until you carry an individualistic mentality in your approach towards serving God, you are lost in the crowd.
