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.

Life doesn’t makes sense outside God’s Factors


Life is meaningless outside God’s factors. Life is difficult living outside biblical instructions. There is simplicity in Christ which makes life easier.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through subtilty, so your mind should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2.Cor.11:3.

Life doesn't makes sense outside God's factors

The biblical mysteries are real. They are secrets hiding in the simplicity of the scripture. The secrets are not fabricated, they are raw scriptural truths.

God cannot entrust these secrets to you below the level your fear for His commandments.

The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.” Ps.25:14.

Life doesn’t makes sense outside God’s factors. Until you depend absolutely on God by obeying His commandments with all you’ve got: your strength, time, money, materials, brain and any other resources; breakthroughs are farfetched.

“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.” Mark.12:30.

Life is complex, it is the simplicity in Christ that can resolved life complexity.

Life is a battle field, we are fighting with the devil in order to take possession of our inheritances in Christ.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might hath life, and they might have more abundantly.” Jn.10:10.

Only God’s help is secured. A man can promise to employ you today and change his word tomorrow. Helps from men are failure prone. The devil will make you worse or even end you up into destruction. It is only God who doesn’t speaks empty word, He has integrity.

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither a son of man that he should repent: hath he said, shall he not do it? Hath he spoken shalt he not make it good.” Num.23:19

Ceased from all fruitless labour and let God help you. Heaven does not help those who help themselves, heaven leaves those who help themselves alone.

Life is ordinary struggle outside God's factors.

No matter where you are around the corner of the world – whether you are brown, white, yellow or black – you need Jesus to help. Everybody needs Jesus.

Life is not a chance but a choice, the ball is in your court, it all depends on how you play it. Buy into the idea of putting God’s word to work, and you will see improvements in all areas of your life.

“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 deeds.” James.1:25.

It works like fire! Serving God this way works like fire! There were people who have served God this way, enjoyed life and go to heaven.

Serving God is not just an escape to heaven. Going to heaven is part of it but not all of it. Serving God guarantees us to enjoy life while we are here and at the same time go to heaven.

And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children for the kingdom sakes who shall not receive manifold more in this present time and in the world to come everlasting.” Lk.18:29-30.
