First and foremost, there is a grace to overcome the difficult times in life. Thus, before going any further, let’s look at two definitions of grace. 1) grace is a manifestation of favor, especially by a superior, and 2) to favor or honor.
Of course, as a Christian, I am talking about the grace of God. You see, God’s grace is not earned. In fact, God gives His grace because He loves us. As a result, has made ‘grace to overcome’ readily available through His son Jesus Christ. You might ask, “But, what does Jesus have to do with grace to overcome?” Well, I am glad you want to know.
John 1:16-17 Good News Translation says, “16 Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another. 17 God gave the Law through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
Grace and truth through Jesus — Grace to Overcome
To put it simply, Jesus Christ is the person of grace. And when one receives Him as Lord and Savior, God’s grace is a guarantee. Ephesians 2:8 English Standard Version says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God…”
In the definitions mentioned earlier, grace also means favor. Therefore, When you accept His Son, God’s grace is the foundation on which the salvation package stands. Know this, God always honors His word. 2 Corinthians 1:20 New Living Translation says, “For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.”
Psalm 5:12 New King James Version says, “For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield.”
God’s grace is the Grace to Overcome
Now let me be very clear, God’s grace is the only grace that will help you truly overcome life’s struggles. 2 Corinthians 12:9 Modern English Version says, “9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.””
So, no matter the problem, just trust God’s grace to overcome it. You know what ‘it’ is [addiction, depression, illness, finances, relationships, etc.].
