"Receive Power through God's Grace"

Grace is the helping hand of God.  Grace is Power. It's power, power, power! It's God's power that we receive by the grace of God through faith.  Everything comes to us through faith, which God also gives us. This is why your faith is important--it breathes life into everything you confess!

Romans 12:3 says, “...God has allotted to each a measure of faith”. We need to ask ourselves, What are we doing with our faith? Are we putting our faith in ourselves? Are we trying to fix things ourselves by trying to change ourselves or our family? Or trying to get our boss's attention so we can make more money and get a promotion? If so, that's not grace.  It's our own works.

But when we release our faith and trust God to do what we can't do, we're putting our faith in Him. Then the grace, which is God's power, comes through the channel of faith and enables us to do what will just amaze us and other people. 

Grace is God's power coming to us freely. That means it doesn't cost us anything other than just putting our faith in God, which enables us to do with ease what we could never do on our own without any amount of struggle and effort.
