David Abioye's Daily Devotional June 23, 2017 – It Takes Grace To Run The Race! (Part 1)


Topic: It Takes Grace To Run The Race! (Part 1) [Friday June 23, 2017]

“…Ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and …the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, … yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence” - 1 Corinthians 1: 26-29

 Our world today is full of mighty men. There are ‘Goliaths’ in every field of endeavour. They have such exceptional qualities and qualifications, coupled with great accomplishments that are capable of intimidating anyone. When you hear of them you are tempted to say, “There is no use trying, what more can I do that has not already been done?” But I have come to understand from God’s word and from personal experience that it is possible to run with giants and still overtake them, inspite of your obvious limitations. The covenant secret that turns ‘small’ men into great achievers is the grace of God. When you know how to articulate the grace of God in your life, you enjoy ceaseless and outstanding breakthroughs all the way.
