So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy ~ Romans 9:16.
You belong to a well-defined place in life. You’re not a product of your circumstances, you were separated from your mother’s womb for God’s glory. However, it is when your destiny truly engages an escape velocity that it can soar freely to accomplish the purpose(s) for which you were born. And, it is then and only then that you can begin to fly supernaturally.
In this regard, the God-factor in your race of life is of paramount importance. The God-factor is what we call “g-race”. Certainly, a new level of grace will be required for another on-time supernatural flight (Acts 4:31-33).
Please, never ascribe to luck or even hard-work what only the grace of God can procure. Every excelling greatness and noble accomplishment on earth are products of God’s grace. Joyous experiences of supernatural flight can only be by the power of the Holy Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). And, once you receive the tangible grace of God, you become approved to win and begin to cruise unhindered on your pathway to the top.
Most amazingly, God loves to give the rich benefits of His grace even to undeserving people, without demanding any compensation in return. Indeed, God’s grace is both un-earnable and un-repayable.
What Is Grace?
Grace is the tangible and undeniable hand of God on a man’s life and in all his affairs (Titus 2:11). God’s grace practically reflects in the lives of its carriers. Paul testified, “I am what I am by the grace of God” (1 Corinthians 15:10).
Grace is a divine bestowal that any believer can take advantage of in order to cruise through the obstacles of life. Grace is God’s ability in man’s inability, provoking a new level of glory and bringing God’s solution for man’s frustration and failure.
It doesn’t matter how people see you. What really matters is how God sees you, and what level of His grace you have accessed. Your failings cannot make you a failure when God’s grace is in the picture.
Please note that grace does jump upon the recipients only by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, who breaks yokes of stagnation and every form of limitations in life. Without the help of the Holy Spirit, you cannot maintain the flow of grace in your life because every channel through which God’s grace flows requires the help of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 1:7).
What Happens When Grace Enables You?
Grace is a major catalyst for supernatural performance. No matter how impossible things may appear to be, there shall be a performance for the man who has contacted God’s superlative grace.
When grace locates you, it compels wondrous things to happen in style in your life, and you naturally become a man that cannot be ignored. You become too loaded to fail and too relevant to be sidelined. You also break through against all odds to fulfill your mission on the earth.
God’s grace enables your success in any environment you find yourself. It is one of the vital mysteries that provoke supernatural breakthroughs on earth.
Your breakthrough does not lie in your strength (1 Samuel 2:9), hard work (Psalm 127:1-2), or mental smartness (Ecclesiastes 9:11; John 3:27; Romans 9:16). Your breakthrough lies in the grace of God, because it is His grace that makes all the difference in any life.
Nothing in life makes great like grace. You can never outgrow the grace of God, and there is no substitute for it on your supernatural flight to greatness. God said to Abraham, “I will make of thee a great nation…” (Genesis 12:2). Certainly, a day of favor is much more blissful than a thousand years of labor. I pray that, by grace, your destiny will start making a positive headway, in Jesus’ Name.
Principles that Invigorate Grace
We are great because God has made us great in Christ Jesus. However, we need to walk in some principles to ensure we are always what God wants us to be. And, the following will lubricate your covenant position with God, any day!
The first principle that invigorates grace is the principle of our inheritance in Christ. Our new birth has engrafted onto us highflier status because of the supernatural life of God in us through Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:17-20). And, we are partakers of the magnificent loftiness that is in Christ (Romans 8:17). That’s the platform from where God’s grace takes us on. Alleluia!
Next to this is a lifestyle of righteousness and kingdom mindedness (Psalms 5:12; Ps.102:13-14). When God sees that you’re all out to glorify Him, He will imbue you with greater grace upon the earth.
Besides, we must understand that honor precedes supernatural flight. When a man honours and loves the Lord, God will in turn honour him. Solomon honored God and he took his flight unto greatness (1 Kings 3:3; 11-12). God promoted him to such a high towering greatness that the Queen of Sheba, seeing him, almost lost her breath (1 Kings 10:4-5).
Furthermore, your gifts and seed offerings are like miracle lifts for those who wish to take their flight unto higher heights of glory, honour and accomplishment on earth (Psalms 45:12). Isaac sowed and reaped a hundred fold and he became exceedingly great until he was envied by his peers (Genesis 26:12-14).
Most certainly, we keep growing and waxing greater in grace for supernatural flight when we respect the principle of sowing: tithing, offerings, seeds of sacrifices, giving to the poor, giving our time and talents.
However, we must beware of anti-grace viruses and forces that are out to frustrate and to corrupt the grace of God in our lives. Where they go unchecked, they can cause grace to fail or, somehow, become frustrated (Galatians 2:21; Hebrews 12:15).
You don’t have to wait for grace to fail or become frustrated in your life; you should grow and mature in grace (2 Peter 3:18). You must ruthlessly deal with the viruses and the negative forces of sin, pride, prayerlessness, ignorance, and lukewarmness, keeping them out of your life and even go forward to grow in grace.
Friends, it is the grace of God that articulates and defines greatness. When grace grows in your life, your accomplishments equally grow in leaps and bounds, soaring unto lofty places. This underscores the importance of guarding and enabling growth of God’s grace upon our lives, which is most secure for those who are saved in Christ Jesus.
Please open the door of your heart to Christ, today. Repent, accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour, be saved and enjoy a secure grace for supernatural flight. Happy Sunday!
