Take Advantage of His Grace by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Take Advantage of His Grace by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which
was given thee by prophecy, with the
laying on of the hands of the presbytery
(1 Timothy 4:14).

In the scripture above, the Apostle Paul gave an
important admonition to young Timothy, to
take advantage of the grace of God. He
emphasised the same thought in 2 Timothy 2:1, saying,
“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in
Christ Jesus.”

When God gives you a responsibility, He gives
you the grace to accomplish the task. To neglect that
grace or not to know that you have it could render your
work ineffective. For example, if you’re called of God
to be a pastor, there’s the grace for that office; it’s the
pastoral grace. Once you recognise and acknowledge
that you’re called into that office and graced for it as
well, it’ll produce results for the glory of Christ, as you
walk in that light.

Some people struggle and experience
frustrations in ministry because they’re working and
walking outside of God’s grace. Working with the Lord
and for the Lord is a walk in glory when you lean on His
grace to pilot you.

If you’re a pastor, an evangelist, cell leader or you
lead in whatever capacity in the Church, and you’ve
been experiencing difficulties carrying out that ministry,
it’s time to take advantage of His grace. The gifts of God and the power of God work by the principle
of recognition and proclamation (Philemon 1:6).
Recognise that His grace is on you to function in that
office, and keep proclaiming accordingly. This is also
true for everyone who is called of God to fulfil any
specific or significant role in the Kingdom.

Even now, activate the grace and power of God
in your life. Affirm in faith, “I’m graced to excel and fulfil
my destiny in Christ. I’m sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency,
and His superabundant grace upon my life is sufficient
for me in all things. I’m an able minister of the Gospel,
because the grace and wisdom of God are at work in
me mightily, to carry out the work of the ministry, in the
Name of the Lord Jesus”. Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your
superabundant, overflowing and infinite grace that’s
at work in me. I thank you for the advantage this
supernatural power of promotion and unending
success brings to my life. I live an extraordinary life
of excellence, victory, and dominion, and reign as a
king in this life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
