TREAT GRACE LIKE A LADY
(Recognise And Celebrate Grace)
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome,
TO THE BIBLE
James 4:6 MSG “…It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.””
Grace gives you greater ability and opens doors for you. When God promotes you, He increases His grace on your life. With that increased grace, you’re able to accomplish much more. But something very important about grace that you must be conscious of is that it craves recognition. You might have noticed that the name, “Grace” is most commonly answered by ladies. It sort of explains something about grace: it’s ladylike; something alluring. A beautiful lady likes to be recognised; she dresses adorably because she likes to be acknowledged. That’s really how grace is.
If you fail to recognise grace, it’ll cringe; it’ll withdraw and cease to function. It’s part of the reason some Christians aren’t seeing the manifestation of grace in their lives as they should. Learn to celebrate grace. Consciously acknowledge that you’re full of grace, surrounded with divine favour everywhere, and every day. You’ll be amazed at the increased blessings and manifestations of the Spirit you’ll experience in your life.
Remember, the Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of grace; so, in celebrating grace, you’re celebrating Him. Therefore, He’ll keep manifesting Himself—His beauty and glory—in your life. Suddenly, you find that you’re being called and chosen for blessings you didn’t even qualify for. Even people who profess not to like you will be doing good things for you. That’s the power of grace.
Even now, God’s grace is increased in your life, causing His glory to be revealed in all that you do, ushering you into your next level of greatness, success, and promotion. Receive it. Celebrate it. Affirm it. Glory to God!
2 Peter 1:2 AMPC; John 1:16; 2 Corinthians 9:8
Dear heavenly Father, thank you for the beauties of your grace in my life, which causes me to grow and manifest the beauty, character and blessings of your Spirit. I recognise your superabundant grace on my life, resulting in favours, promotions, increase, advantage and innumerable blessings, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
