But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen (2 Peter 3:18).
The grace-advantage is the power of promotion. It brings acceptability, honor and dignity into your life such that others see the beauty and excellence of God in you. The grace of God has been made available to everyone of us in abundance (Ephesians 4:7); it's the lifting power of God that attracts the right people, materials and resources you need to function in God's destiny for your life. As one who's graced of God, there's a divine about you that attracts good to you. Even in challenging situations, that grace gives you the advantage and causes you to rise above every adversity.
Never struggle to be accepted at work, in school, at home or anywhere; you have the grace-advantage. All you need is to recognize and be strong in the grace of God: "Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." (2 Timothy 2:1). To be strong in the grace of God is to be conscious of, and take advantage of it! You're the seed of Abraham; therefore the grace for prosperity is working in you twenty-four hours a day! That grace puts you ahead and positions you for success like it did for Isaac, who sowed in a time of famine and reaped a hundredfold harvest in the same year (Genesis 26:12-13).
Even as the world battles a downturn, with major economies failing, you still have the advantage because you're a child of grace. That why the Bible says "When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up..." (Job 22:29). That's because you have the grace-advantage; a lifting power that causes your life to move from glory to glory.
Dear Father, thank you for giving me the grace-advantage. Excellence, glory, virtue and success exude from me today because of your grace that's at work in me. Everywhere I go today, I'm accepted and highly favoured, for I carry your divine presence with me. I'm growing in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!
