“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me” 1 Corinthians 15:10, NKJV.
What if Peter would have tried to wait until the next day to walk on water? What if he would have said, “I thought I wanted to come out there with you Jesus, but Would he have drowned? We don’t know. All we know is Jesus said, “Come” and in that one divine directive was the grace to do what He said (see Matthew 14:22-33).
In every command God gives us, there’s the grace to get it done. What has God instructed you to do? What has He told you to start doing? What destructive habit has He told you to stop doing? Whatever it is, His grace is available for you to accomplish it.
Paul, “the least of the Apostles” was able to write two-thirds of the New Testament, start churches, raise up people of God and do all that he was able to do during the time of the Early Church. How? It was by God’s divine grace. He received God’s instructions and he received the grace that came along with it.
Let us do the same. It is not, do I have enough money to do what God has told me to do, or do I have enough time. The most important question is do I have enough grace. And the answer to that is, YES! His grace is enough for you.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your grace upon my life. Let me be a walking testimony of your grace. Help me not to frustrate it, waste it or neglect to use what you’ve given me. Help me to be strong in the grace you’ve provided for me. Help me hear your voice clearly and walk in swift obedience to you. In Jesus’ name.
(Read 2 Corinthians 12:9; Galatians 2:21)
