Fueled by grace

God has a plan and a purpose for each one of us. We are created on purpose and for a purpose. God has called us to do good works. This is exciting news, but how are we supposed to accomplish all this? Are we on our own to figure it all out? Absolutely not.

God doesn’t call us to accomplish incredible things for His kingdom and then leave us hanging and holding the bag. He doesn’t leave us to figure it out or to make it happen on our own. Rather, God makes His powerful grace abound in our lives so that we can find success in every good thing assigned to us by Him. God provides all we need to experience huge success as we chase after His plans and purpose for our lives.

In fact, we shouldn’t expect to simply skate by with minimal success. God’s word actually says that we will flourish and find abundant success because God fuels and equips us with His grace - that powerful grace which allows us to say to this mountain “move from here to there, and it will move.” God gives us all we need to “git-r-done” and fulfill His purpose for our life.

Here’s how the Apostle Paul puts it:
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. – 2 Corinthians 9:8
