But For His Grace…

Beloved,

I have seen the God of wonders work miracles for me. I have seen Him work miracles in the lives of many around me. I have seen Him work miracles through His written Word and I know for the one reading this you are going to be next in line for a miracle too.

His Word shows us that whenever we need a miracle in any area of our lives, God is able to perform it. He is able to perform it even if such miracle has never existed before. Why? You are too superior to physical laws. So stop saying that miracle is not possible, stop saying you are in darkness. Who kept you there? Romans 5:17 (KJV) says, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ”.

You have received ABUNDANCE of GRACE and of the gift of righteousness so you are expected to reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. How many times have you looked back at your life and realized that if it wasn’t for the grace of God you won’t have lived this long?

Brothers and sisters, if it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have died in that car accident. If it wasn’t for the grace of God, you would have been the one in that wheelchair because of a domestic violence. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have died because of that drug overdose. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have  been the one spending your life behind prison walls. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have continued to live in that abusive marriage that has become a silent hell for you. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have been out of job and be among your colleagues that were laid off. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have been among the millions all over the world who will go to bed tonight without food. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you would have remained poor, unable to help yourself and anyone. If it wasn’t for the Grace of God you wouldn’t have been reading this message.

Today, it’s possible you are living in your car and moving from one house to another but you are still breathing if it wasn’t for the grace of God. That’s a privileged denied to many. It’s possible you might have gone through three marriages and now you are  trying to get your life back together if it wasn’t for the grace of God. It’s possible you are battling with a health problem and you know that if it wasn’t for the grace of God, you shouldn’t be alive. That’s something to be grateful to God for.

Everyone you see today is fighting a battle and I don’t know the one you are battling with. What I do know is that God is able to deliver you out of them all. You are human full of mistakes, and in need of God’s grace just as much as the next person. So don’t condemn yourself because things are not working out as expected. Don’t condemn yourself because you can’t provide food for yourself and for your family. If God feeds the birds of the air, won’t He also take care of you because you are so much more important to Him?

Jesus charged us in Matthew 6:26 (TLB) to “Look at the birds! They don’t worry about what to eat – they don’t need to sow or reap or store up food – for your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are”.

Beloved, there is a hope that comes from knowing that no matter what you’re going through God loves you too much to let you fail! You might be thinking you are not everything you should be. It’s even possible you are still struggling with some habits and hang-ups. It’s possible you’re still wrestling with some anger and forgiveness issues. It’s possible you still slip up every once in a while and say something you shouldn’t say. You might not be where you should be by now, but remind yourself that God loves you too much to let you fail!

Romans 5:5 (TLB) says, “Then, when that happens, we are able to hold our heads high no matter what happens and know that ALL IS WELL, for we know how dearly God loves us, and we feel this warm love everywhere within us because God has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love”.

Keep pressing forward, believing that you are anointed and empowered. You shouldn’t have made it, you shouldn’t be here, you shouldn’t have made it through the storm, but just tell the devil, “But for the grace of God, I’m still here!”.

Stay strong in His Grace. Even when it feels like everything is falling apart. God has you in the palm of His hand. He knows every need, every struggle and every desire. He has it all figured out… He’s a supernatural God.

May God extend to you incredible health, uncommon favor, unexpected wealth and uncontested success! No weapon formed against you shall prosper. The hand of God is upon you. Those pitfalls, the things that the enemy meant for harm, we move them out in the Name of Jesus.

In Him,
Ali Papa.
