My first attempt at the senior school certificate examination was in my penultimate year in high school.

I had sat for the private example with a desire to pass all my papers before my final year.

As God will have it, I cleared all the major papers, including the English language.

When my friends got to know this, they were greatly amazed and inspired. But I knew that Grace made it happen.

Since that time, I have leveraged God’s grace for unusual results in life and destiny.

Friend, have you leveraged God’s grace for unusual results in life and destiny?

Do you really understand what grace is?

One of the most often quoted words in the Christiandom is grace. It is also the most often misunderstood and abused.

An average Christian today does not have a full grasp of what grace is (2 Corinthians 6:1).

Interestingly, we function in the economy of grace.

We live in a grace economy.

In this kingdom, faith is our currency, but grace is the capital.

We are saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8).

If you don’t understand and leverage grace, your life would not look like a kingdom life.

Grace is God’s provision for a life of success and progress in the kingdom (1 Corinthians 15:10).

Grace is our leverage.

There are different dimensions to grace that must be fully grasped.

Whereas the basic definition of grace is God’s riches at Christ’s expense, it is not all there is to grace (2 Corinthians 8:9).

Grace came at a cost, which is the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. But it also comes with a responsibility.

It is the responsibility to use and maximize grace for profiting (Philippians 2:12-13).

Grace is a divine soft loan given to a man to do destiny.

Simply put, God wants you to take responsibility for the grace He has already given you in Christ.

He wants you to labour with grace (1 Corinthians 15:10).

Grace is what God has brought through Christ.

But what you bring, in labour and responsibility, would determine the extent to which God’s grace will work or manifest in your life.

Like I said in the opening story, I was privileged to have distinction in the English language that year.

But it came at a cost.

I wrote several essays. Read some of the best books on the English language. I practised several past questions.

I gave it what it took by God’s grace.

If grace must make it happen in your career, business, ministry, etc., then you need to learn how to work with the grace (2 Peter 1:10).
