And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all SUFFICIENCY in all things, may abound to every good work – EXPLOITS. Paraphrase mine. 2 Corinthians 9:8
Welcome to year 2018, the Spirit of God has given us this scripture to glean direction from.
God has purposed us to good works. Eph.2:9-10. But without the supply of Grace more grace there will only be this much of grace.
Already it’s almost a decade (ten years) we have been at the church work of VIRTUES CHRISTIAN CENTRE. And with each passing year we get to see the application of this Gráce program in our personal and corporate life through the measure of faith we have received.
With no reservations whatsoever we declare that our God is faithful. God is good and His mercies have endured through it all. We have excelled in all things. Great roots. Clearer structures and indeed higher heights. Amen!
There are certainly areas where we are yet to maximize the grace of God. This we will do and much more in Jesus name.
So indeed it is a year of More.
More Sufficiency | More Exploits 2018.
More Grace | More Accomplishments 2018.
Let us briefly remind ourselves quickly on the contextual application to this prophetic Word.
1 Cor.15:10 confirms that a man can only be what he is by the grace of God. To do more, requires more grace.
Now, Grace ‘itself’ does not accomplish all of the good works. But Grace supplies the ‘all-sufficiency’ required to get things done. 2 Cor. 9:8. Sufficiency refers to all necessary resources to accomplish any kind of tasks. 2 Cor.9:8(Amplified).
This includes sufficient supply of intelligence, resources, timing, relationships, direction etc.
So the Spirit of God has prompted my heart to pronounce this year as one of sufficiency. And the purpose of the sufficiency is to achieve every good work. Amen!
Recall good work is what we have been ordained unto. Jesus Himself Who went about to do good. That men may see our good works and glorify God our father who is in heaven. Eph. 2:10; Acts.10:38; Matt.5:14.
Good works are therefore what we refer to as exploits.
Life changing activities. For ourselves and for others. Spiritual, social, financial good works are the hallmark of what we refer to as exploits. May good works flood our lives by the same measure of sufficiency in Jesus name.
We begin this month of January with strategic positioning in prophetic grace.
We will commence our fasting from January 15th – February 4th with daily prayers by 6-7:30pm. With exception of our service days. You want to be there.
One of the books to read include 5 Essentials Of People Skills by Dale Carnegie.
Other correspondence will be made available for updates weekly.
Welcome once again to 2018, your year of MORE. MORE SUFFICIENCY | MORE EXPLOITS!
Please Remain God’s Pride! Amen!
