Topic : THE PATHWAY TO ACCESSING GRACE
Scripture : Genesis 6: 8. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter with the word! Previously, we established that grace is the good Hand of the Lord. Today, we shall be looking at the pathway that leads to grace – the good Hand of the Lord!
When I speak of pathway I mean direction or the track you can walk on that leads you to grace. Grace doesn’t just fall on people like cherries, there are some action steps that leads to it.
Even as abundant as grace for salvation is, there is still a requirement for you to enjoy grace for salvation. May I submit to you that grace is what tackles disgrace!
Grace is God in a race running with you. Grace is what brings to you what you don’t deserve or qualified for. For every assignment to be carried out successfully here on earth there must be a supply of grace.
There is grace for ministry, there is grace for marketing, there is grace for the miracles, signs and wonder, there is grace for pastoring, there is grace for prayer etc. That is why another word for grace is unction, God’s ability.
How does grace come?
Grace comes by securing the Hand of the Lord. So whatever you do to bring the Hand of the Lord upon your life is the pathway to grace. We shall consider some few scriptural examples of men that enjoyed grace and learn from their secrets.
1. Our first example is Noah:
Genesis 6: 8. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. –
How was he able to find grace and the good Hand of the Lord? Well, Noah found grace because he lived an Holy life! We can therefore deduce that the first requirement or the number one pathway that leads to grace is holiness.
In a world of disgrace, decadence, debased morals, Noah chose to live a Holy life! How do I know? The Bible said he was a preacher of righteousness.
2 Peter 2: 5. And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
He was busy preaching for others to repent from their unrighteous life and God looked at him and decided to release grace- His good hand upon him.
Beloved, if what you desire is grace which is God in a race, then understand that holiness as a secret is a factor. You can not afford to live anyhow! There’s a prescription of how to live in this kingdom in the Bible.
This is why the Bible said;
1 Peter 1: 15. But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
2 Another example is Esther, she chose to remain a virgin when other girls are defiling themselves around. The outcome was she obtained grace and later became queen. (Esther 2:15-18).
The only reward you get from defilement is disgrace! You can’t be living an immoral life and expect the good Hand of the Lord because you are fellowshiping with all manner of spirits!
1 Corinthians 6: 16. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that commiteth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Beloved, it is easy to pick the spirit of poverty through sex and so many other dangerous spirits. There are sexually transmitted demons(STD)! These are wicked spirits that feast on destinies. You can’t live anyhow and expect the good Hand of the Lord. Your daily life has a voice! How you are living your life now determines the grace you can access. God cannot be mocked whatsoever a man sow shall he reap. (Gal. 6:7)
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! The rejection of Jesus Christ is the ticket to hell, give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today,
Lord, I receive grace to live right in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy upon your life the Hand of the Lord that represents the dimensions of grace you desire, receive it now in the name of Jesus.
-Let the spirit of holiness take over your life from today. Today you are up spiritually, tomorrow you are down is over for ever in Jesus name.
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
