God gives us grace so that we can achieve greater things in this world. But I have discovered that many believers think of grace as a substitute for hard work. Paul said "I am what I am by the grace of God; nevertheless, I worked harder to achieve greater results". The things that will rescue humanity from servitude are not prayer points, they are work-points. As much as God is looking for people who will stand on the prayer altar, He is also looking for those who would stand all-night, working out what they have prayed for. Prayer is like making an oral report, but it is the physical evidence or work that proves the validity of the prayer.
Wicked people also pray, but the impact of their wickedness is only felt by their practical evil works. Believers even pray more, but do little or nothing about the work. The bible says believers will build the destroyed places, but I am yet to see where a house is built by heavy prayer points. Even Jesus had to engage His hands when it was time to rebuild the temple. God releases grace when we pray; but the release of grace is not the accomplishment of work, but the strength needed to work. The only way we can stop the wickedness of the wicked is to work out the goodness of God into full manifestation. The bible says "it shall come to pass that there will be no more destruction, because the knowledge of the Lord shall cover the earth as water covers the sea".
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; EVIL WILL ALWAYS BOW TO GOOD; THE MOMENT GOOD TAKES OVER, EVIL TAKES COVER. GRACE IS THE POWER WE NEED TO WORK OUT THE GOOD PLAN OF GOD. THEREFORE, PUT YOUR GRACE TO WORK. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
