And it’s August the 31st! Thank God for His mercies and grace upon your life. As always, we’re delighted you stopped by.
1 Corinthians 15:10 (Contemporary English Version) states, ” But God treated me with undeserved grace! He made me what I am, and his grace wasn’t wasted. I worked much harder than any of the other apostles, although it was really God’s grace at work and not me.”
“This week, the grace of God will deliver to you what your efforts cannot deliver in Jesus name.”
Some years ago, my pastor made this declaration towards the close of a particular service and I said ‘amen’ rather casually.Unknown to me, within the same week I would receive an invitation for a job test I had waited for, for several months.My first reaction was that I wouldn’t attend the test, because to my mind it was short notice, and that left me with little or no time to prepare. I had other good reasons not to attend the test, but after much persuasion by my family and friends, I changed my mind.
The test was nothing I was used to and I knew only God could come through for me. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the prophetic declaration my pastor had made. Under my breathe, I let God know this was an opportunity for His grace of God to answer for me if there was anything like it.
Guess what? God answered my prayer as I miraculously passed the test. You’re probably asking how, but interestingly I can’t explain how it happened. All I can say is by that experience, I learnt that God’s grace is real and it works. As you would imagine, I haven’t stopped praying in this manner.
On this last day of August, and as you step into the last four months of 2020, I’m re-echoing my pastor’s prayer that this week, the grace of God will deliver what your efforts cannot deliver in Jesus name, Amen!
God’s blessings always,
