Grace and Strength
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency]. (Philippians 4:13 AMP)
The word grace can be defined as “the strength and power of God that enables us to do what He tells us.”
So, how do you access this enabling strength and power? By accessing the grace of God. The Bible says, “It is good for the heart to be established and ennobled and strengthened by means of grace” (Hebrews 13:9 AMP).
The grace of God is the only thing that is going to give you inner strength. No amount of self-effort or determination is going to release that inner power. Romans 5:2 tells us that we have access to this grace by faith. Just listen to this partial list from Hebrews 1 of what accessing grace through faith did for those who believed:
- Noah prepared and ark for the saving of his household
- Abram went to the place which he would receive as an inheritance
- Sarah received strength to conceive a child
- Moses led God’s people safely through the Red Sea
- Women received their dead raised to life again
It doesn’t matter what difficulty you may be facing today, or how impossible it may seem to accomplish what God has called you to do. God’s grace will provide the inner strength and power you need to carry you to victory—and you can access this grace through faith.
Confession: By faith, I access the grace of God. I believe I receive supernatural inner strength to do what the Word tells me to do. I am not moved by how I feel, because God’s grace is upon me right now.
