“But by the grace (the unmerited favor and blessing) of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not [found to be] for nothing (fruitless and without effect). In fact, I worked harder than all of them [the apostles], though it was not really I, but the grace (the unmerited favor and blessing) of God which was with me” (1Cor 15:10; AMP)
By the grace of God I am a new creation in Christ Jesus, a child and a servant of God Almighty. This is my story…this is my song! The ‘old’ me died long ago. I am totally different from the person my mother brought into this world. My present identity is ‘designed and produced’ by the grace of God. No man can take the glory!
Grace is defined as the un-merited favor of God. Let me make it more personal…I used to be foolish and shy. I do not merit to be different but I now find a new supernatural wisdom working in me. I used to be easily deceived and confused by life events. I do not merit to be different but now, I find in me a new strong will to please God and the strength to reject the voice of the enemy. I used to think I am ‘a nobody’. I do not merit to be ‘a somebody’ but here I am, fearfully and wonderfully made. As the mercies of God are new every morning, so my life is new every morning. The way I see myself, I will never become old…this is a miracle that I chose to believe!
If you see what I see, then ‘tap’ from this anointing. From this new level of mercy and grace, dear children, I bless you afresh!
God bless you!
In Jesus name,
