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.

[1 Corinthians 15:10]


It is what the favour of God that bestows His amazing grace upon a person can accomplish, to make him soar above the rest of the flock. And, Paul having experienced it in his life is able to say, giving credit where credit is due, powerful words that you and I would do well to emulate. For, when you know that what you are is by God’s grace, and you do what you do depending on the grace of God, you will certainly be able to do more than what others do, but you will also know that it is the gracious favour of God. It is the thrust and implication that underlies Paul’s words, when he says, but by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace towards me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all; yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. [1 Corinthians 15:10]

It is also seen in the words of Paul as he commends the Macedonian church, when by the grace of God upon them, they were able to excel in giving, by giving much beyond their ability. [2 Corinthians 8:1-3]

Difficult things become easy, when grace of God which is His favour works in you. For, it is His power that works in you, and through you. You are not operating in your own power. Thus, the favour of God connects you to His purpose for your life. It gives you the power to work it out in your life. And, it also connects you to His provision, to provide what you need in order to accomplish it.


Where others have been rejected, I shall be accepted, where they’ve been abused and condemned, I shall be praised and commended, where they’ve failed, I shall succeed, and where they’ve been tolerated, I shall be celebrated because of God’s aroma of grace on me.
