Topic: You Have Been Empowered By Grace [TREM Devotional Monday May 28, 2018]
“And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.” Acts 13:39
The law kills you, the law condemns you, the law judges you and brings out your mistakes but it doesn’t tell you how to get out of it. But grace did not only get you out, it also empowered you to live above the law.
You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Even when you make a mistake, you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Even when you fall, you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Even when you stumble, you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Do you know why? Because it was given to you! You didn’t have to do anything for it. It is a gift that God gave. If you must do something to earn it, then it’s no more a gift. That is why you will rule over every circumstance.
God says those who have received the abundance of grace and gift of righteousness shall reign. We are not waiting until Jesus comes before we reign. No! We are not waiting to reign when we get to heaven. We are in charge right now! Amen!
You are in charge of every circumstance and over situations. You will come out of that sickness! You will come out of that disease! That tumour will disappear! Whatever it is, it will bow to you. Money will not embarrass you.
When grace empowers you, it is not only for spiritual blessing. Grace empowers you with all-around blessings. That was why the Apostle John wrote in 3 John 2 “I wish above ALL things that you prosper …” Everything that pertains to life and godliness is already available to you. So, don’t lose your focus. Keep looking unto Jesus. As Jesus cannot fail, so you also cannot fail. Lines are falling unto you in pleasant places. You have a goodly heritage. Your heritage is good in Jesus name.
