TOPIC: THE PATHWAY TO ACCESSING GRACE (PART2)
Scripture: Genesis 6: 8. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Beloved, in continuation of what we started yesterday on the pathway to accessing grace, we discovered that grace is accessible to every one who chooses to live a holy life. Today, we shall press further into the matter.
From our anchor scripture, we observe that Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord (Gen.6:8). In a world of moral decadence, where everybody seems to do what is right in their own sight, Noah secured the hand of God that brought grace, the panacea to shame and mockery.
How was he able to secure grace upon his life?
1. He lived a life of holiness (details in yesterday meditation)
2. He lived by faith: The Bible said:
Hebrews 10: 38. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
And that was the life of Noah. He lived by faith and faith securye the Hand of the Lord- the hand of grace upon his life. How do I know Noah lived by faith? The Bible said:
Hebrews 11: 7. By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
So, we can see the action of building the ark was an act of faith. This is a man who had never experienced any single rainfall, no river nearby yet he was to build the largest boat that is refers to as the ark which must float on water!
Faith is conviction backup with action and that was exactly what Noah did. He believed God, he was convinced of what God told him and then went into action.
Noah’s action of building an ark was purely an act of faith! In between the building of the ark and when rain finally came down was 120years! So for 120years he exercised faith in what God had told him.
Beloved, what has God told you that you have almost given up on? It is time for your faith to come alive and never, never ever give up on God!
Don’t exercise faith for one year and then pack up. Not for 3,5,10 or 20years and then give up! You are to live continuously by faith(Rom.1:17).
Beloved, are you one of those who are still in doubt of the love of God towards them?
Do you still doubt the power of God? In this kingdom we belong to, you cannot obtain anything without faith. No doubter has any inheritance in this kingdom. We are saved by faith, walk by faith and preserved by faith. Even our recieving is done by faith;
James 1: 6. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
So, if you are not going to pray by faith don’t bother yourself praying at all because in receiving answers to prayer, it must be by faith. Even in pleasing God it is done by faith. Although, holiness is a requirement to see the Lord (Heb.12;14), it requires faith to please God:
Hebrews 11: 6. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! The rejection of Jesus is the ticket to hell, give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord help me to Iive by faith and secure your Hand of grace upon my life in Jesus name.
– I prophesy grace that tackles disgrace, receive it now in the name of Jesus.
– For everyone who has been waiting for God’s visitation, your time has come.

God bless you.
