MONDAY JANUARY 6, 2020
TOPIC: GOD’S EMPOWERING GRACE
BIBLE TEXT: 2CORINTHIANS 12:1-10
MEMORY VERSE:” And he said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 CORINTHIANS 12:9)
Grace has been aptly described as “God’s riches at Christ’s expense.” Grace is the unmerited favour of God on the undeserving. God’s grace support, strength and power to His faithful children to accomplish various tasks, overcome sin, opposition and to make heaven at last.
The text today reveals the source of Paul’s strength for victory. It shows the source of his array of successes in the ministry despite persecutions, trials, temptations and weakness in the body that stood ferociously against his determination to realize the heavenly vision of winning souls and making heaven. The primary of God’s grace for success and breakthrough is a key lesson for all believers in Christ as shown in our Bible text above.
God’s grace empowers you to overcome life’s challenges. To enjoy this grace, we must live a righteous, faithful, dutiful and prayerful life like Apostle Paul. God’s grace is like fuel; it fires the engine in our soul, spirit and body to run to triumph. Your strength isn’t sufficient to carry you through. Never stop to seek the grace of God.
QUOTE: Your strength isn’t sufficient carry you.
CHALLENGE: Grace helps to accomplish great tasks.
PRAYER: Lord, give me grace to follow through.
