“He Gives More Grace….”
“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”
If you’ve been operating at a certain level, doing everything you know to do, but haven’t advanced or made significant progress, what you need is more grace.
For example, in ministry, there’s the grace for pastoring. There’s a grace to pastor two hundred people, and there’s a grace to pastor five hundred people. If you’re given the grace to Pastor five hundred people, it doesn’t matter what you do, that’s the area you‘d function in since that’s what you have grace for. Even if ten thousand people came into the church, because the grace given to you is for five hundred, the nine thousand five hundred will not be retained. Only five hundred will remain, because the grace given to you is for that much.
This works the same way in finances. There’re people who’ll never have more than a certain amount of money at any given time, because that’s just how far they can reach. If you gave them more money, it will fizzle away somehow, and they’d get back to that maximum balance they’re graced to handle. However, more grace will make a difference. Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
At no extra effort on your part, you can achieve much more results by taking advantage of the grace that’s in Christ Jesus. There’re different graces for different endeavours. Do you know which grace you need? Is it the grace for healing, for multiplication, for winning souls, for business expansion or for your finances? Just go to the “shelf” and find the grace you want! Notice it says that we may find grace to help in time of need, meaning the reason we find such grace is because we want to help other people; we want to change lives.
Take advantage of the grace that’s in Christ Jesus. You can take advantage of that grace right now and begin helping other people who are in need. Remember, the Word declares: “…but he giveth more grace… (James 4:6).
Dear Father, I thank you for your grace which you’ve so lavishly poured out on me. I take advantage of that grace today, and as a result, gates of blessings and opportunities are opened to me. My life is the testimony of your grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
