1 Corinthians 15:10
“But by the grace of God, I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.”
Everything we have acquired we have it because of God. There is no achievement that we’ve made out of our strength and power. Everything we have worked for, everything we have been gifted with, and the things that are passed down to us all, happen because of God and not because of us. Whether you worked hard for what you have or if you received it on a silver platter, it is all God. It is the grace of God that works through us that gives us the ability to build and to acquire all of what we have. The truth is we cannot do life on our own. Though we cannot see the grace of God physically at work, it is the very thing that works to get us where we are and where we are going. Whether you believe it or not, God’s grace is the reason why you are, where you are even at this very moment.
It is very evident when someone has Grace working on the behalf. A person can work very hard, and in some cases, they can work very little yet, because of the grace that is upon their life they succeed above and beyond their thoughts and imaginations. Do not get caught up in thinking that your strength and your hard work is what is carrying you through in life because it isn’t. It is purely and solely the grace of God that accompanies you that allows what you do to succeed. Hard work alone will not get you anywhere, but when the divine grace of God is alongside that hard to work, then the possibilities become endless. Having all this in mind be sure to thank the good Lord for His grace that He has so graciously given on to you, for it is only because of him that you are who you are.
