February 24 – Grace for All Round Success

1 Peter 5:10

“But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Jesus Christ, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

Galatians 3:16

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”

It is very and every way possible to prosper in all that you set your hands upon to do. Some people believe in prosperity, but not outrightly. They say you may fail today and succeed tomorrow. They say even God doesn’t want people to succeed always so their hearts will not become puffed up with pride. As religious as this statement may sound, it is far from the truth. God wants you to succeed always.

2 Corinthians 2:14 tells us that God always causes us to triumph in all things and spreads through us the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. Failure isn’t part of the fragrance of God’s knowledge, therefore He doesn’t want us to fail in anything we do in His Name. God is not back of flops, no! Failure is not God’s handiwork. He is a God of success who has never suffered any form of failure and can never suffer it. It therefore follows that God wants us – His children to have all round success in every sphere of our endeavour.

Our opening verse tells us that God is the God of all grace, which means that He has grace for every need and in endless measures. No matter the need, there is grace for it with God. This knowledge frees us from the fear of failure. There is no reason to fail under God. No matter what you are dealing with, the God of all grace can and will help you get over and through it. Approach Him for grace today in prayer. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. The Father’s arms are wide open, waiting for you to come. Why not run into His loving arms right away?

 

My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus Christ, I refuse to fail in anything that I set my hands upon; I am God’s child and my Father is the God of all grace. I make the most of my relationship with the Father in Christ Jesus as I take everything to Him in prayers. Amen.

 

Further Meditation: 2 Corinthians 2:14-17; 1 Corinthians 5:1-8.
