DEVOTIONAL: Applying Grace To Overcome Weaknesses – SOD 8 December 2020
The grace of God is needed to overcome the weaknesses of life.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
The grace of God is needed to overcome the weaknesses of life. The grace of God is needed because people are confronted with diverse kinds of weaknesses.
Hebrews 12:1 refers to these weaknesses as “the sins which doth so easily beset us”. These sins, which satan uses to pull people down, are unique to different people. For example, there are people who don’t drink alcohol or smoke cigarette but when they are tempted with money matters, they would easily fall even though they appear to be fervent Christians. Some people can be praying in tongues yet cheating people. It may be a generational weakness. People in a particular family may be known for or identified with a certain kind of weakness. So, identify the weakness in your life and ask God for the grace to deal with it.
So, when you identify the weakness in your life that Satan wants to capitalise on to take you to hell, apply for the grace of God. The grace makes you to say “No” to sin (Titus 2:11-12). When you are confronted with sin, you tell God: “Lord, I need grace to overcome this sin – this alcoholic tendency, this immorality, this pornographic addiction, these habits of lying and cheating etc.” And as you apply for grace, also apply physical caution or safeguard. For example, if you know that your problem is lying, gossip, exaggeration, betraying people, etc. reduce the way you talk.
Beloved, as you apply for grace to overcome your weaknesses, you shall overcome the enemy and his temptations in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: When you identify the weakness in your life that satan wants to capitalise on to take you to hell, apply for the grace of God.
1. Identify the weakness(es) in your life.
2. Always apply for the grace of God to overcome the weakness(es) of life.
3. Be cautious in life and don’t take the grace of God for granted. Don’t misuse the grace of God as an opportunity to commit more sins.
