Topic: Grace to Carry On [11/08/2016]
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5. Read: Jn 15:1-5
A brother who has been telling me that he has many written works to publish but has no time to publish them, and I told him, no, grace and passion is needed to get things done because, "By strength shall no man prevail". 1 Sam 2:9. One day, while I was typing the day's Devotional, he walked in and said to me, I have not seen your post today, or are you tired? I replied him, no, that is what I'm working on to post.
According to the story of the talents, everyone of us are gifted differently and according to our gifting, grace has been released to help us accomplish our various assignments on earth. God's grace are in categories, whichever category of your grace, you can always grow it to move mountain. 2 Pt 3:18. I might not be able to do what you are doing and you might not be able to do same; the good news is that, we all are gifted, locate your God given gift and start operating it. Don't be distracted or intimidated by other people's success, if you depend upon God, He can engrace you to do much more with what He has deposited inside of you.
* Today, I stop being intimidated by other people's success. I ask for grace to enforce your gift in my life and I depend on your enabling grace to carry on in Jesus Name.
