8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
Our opening Scripture reveals to us how we got saved. It says our salvation happened by grace through faith; it didn’t happen by our own strength, but by the strength of God, the grace of God, which came as a gift from God. What then is Grace? Grace is the gift of God that is potent to save and deliver. Grace is the visible expression of God’s glory; it is the outshining and the beautiful outburst of the glory of God. Grace is the visible and attractive dimension of the glory of God at work in us that magnetizes and captivates others to God. Grace is visibly and remarkably an evident manifestation of the glory of God. The grace of God is God’s saving hand stretched out to save and deliver. God’s grace saves from sin and all its consequences. Grace is God’s hand stretched out to offer us help, while faith is our hands stretched out to receive from God. All that grace has made available to us is received by faith. Faith is that informed consciousness of what grace has provided for you, that acts on the Word fearlessly and receives freely what God has provided with gratitude unto God.
We are made by grace, not by effort. God has made all things ready for us in Christ Jesus and He has given us all things freely to enjoy. You don’t need to struggle to enjoy grace; it is needless. When you know what is written in the scripts (Scriptures) for you, nothing outside the script will ever move you anymore. Have you read the script? Do you know how it’s going to end? It’s going to end in your favour. People may say that you are exhibiting over-confidence when you boldly declare that it is ending in my favour, but you are speaking from what is written, because in the script, you’ve seen the end from the beginning and in the end, it ended in your favour!!! The next time you go to work, you are working from that substance; that it’s been done, you are declaring that God has made a way for you where there seems to be no way. Everything you will ever need in life has already been provided. Grace is the reason for faith. We cannot believe God for what grace has not already provided for us. God has provided all things for us because He has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ, therefore we can believe God to receive what He has already given to us. Get what is written in the Word. What is written is written. No devil can erase it; no devil can change it. Favour, increase, acceleration, healing, peace, etc., are all of God’s provisions for you in Christ. Freely receive in the Name of Jesus!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am a child of grace, made by grace and walking in grace. I receive by faith all that Grace has provided for me, in Jesus’ Name!
