OBTAIN MORE GRACE BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
(There’s A Provision of Grace For Every Task)
“…He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6).
When the Lord gives you an assignment, He empowers you for it by granting you the grace for the task. When He increases your responsibilities, He also increases the grace. This is so important because, except the Lord increases your ability for the higher responsibility, you really can’t accomplish that purpose.
Think about the fact that your parents wouldn’t send you to buy groceries without money to pay for them; how much more your heavenly Father. For every assignment He gives you, He also dispenses grace to help you accomplish it. For instance, there’s grace for salvation, and every child of God has got it. The Bible says in Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”
Just as God has dealt to every man in Christ the measure of faith, so also has He made the grace for salvation available to all men. But beyond the grace for salvation, there are also different graces in Christ. Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
There’s grace for your assignment; there’s a grace for anything the Lord instructs you to do, or anything that’s consistent with His plan and purpose for your life. This should be your confidence—that you can obtain whatever grace you require, Hallelujah!
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for lavishing me with grace. I take advantage of this grace, riding on it to fulfil your plans and purposes for my life. I make full proof of your grace in my life, for my ministry, academics, health, finances, and all that I’m involved with, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
