5 – The Ability to Overcome
5 – Unmerited Favor

Matthew 5:5 (NKJV) Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.


Psalm 23:1-4 (NKJV) The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Grace from God gives us the ability to overcome “the valley of the shadow of death.” (Psalms 23). We’re given the authority of Christ to conquer any situation the enemy would use to take us out. I know grace is traditionally known as unmerited favor, but it’s also more than that. When it is, God likes to stamp the number five on it.

Acts 4:32-33 (NKJV) Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common. 33 And with great power, the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.

The precious grace of God shows up everywhere in a believer’s life. God told Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you.” God will not always take or remove something from our lives, but He will sustain and deliver us through.

Declaration: I will grow in the grace of God as I grow in the Lord.
