Text: 1 Corinthian 15:10 (AMP)
But by the grace (the unmerited favor and blessing) of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not [found to be] for nothing (fruitless and without effect). In fact, I worked harder than all of them [the apostles], though it was not really I, but the grace (the unmerited favor and blessing) of God which was with me

Grace has a lot to show in its profile or CV what he has done. For a hardened murderer to become a leading apostle with innumerable landmark accomplishments; grace was the power behind it. He worked in him and was with him (1 Corinth 15:10).
We become what we are and what we would be by grace and manifest by grace.
Grace was the brain behind all the exploits of the Heroes of faith in Hebrew 11.
Jesus was able to do all he did by grace at work in him (Hebrew 2:9). Noah was holy in a generation so perverted that there was no other remedy than to wipe it out. But he found grace (Gen 6:8).
Esther found grace before the king’s Chamberlain (Esther 2:15), the king (Esther 2:15) and became the queen to fulfill her destiny even at the risk of her life(Esther 4:16). It was by grace that Esther responded positively to the challenge posed by Mordecai and took action. If there was no grace, she could do nothing, rather she would have become bitter and be defiled (Hebrew 12:15). People crash when exposed to positions with no grace to bear it but become more pruned when grace is available to go through.
The same grace teaches and brings wisdom to accomplish until the target point which is for the name of God to be glorified. Grace doesn’t do an incomplete job; it doesn’t stop until there is perfection. He is never tired.
Moses found grace and became a man that beheld the similitude of God (Exodus 33:11-17).
The kind of grace Moses experienced was rare and so his kind was also rare (Deuteronomy 34:10).
Joseph found grace before Potiphar and no other place was fit for a poor stranger slave boy than the head! (Gen 39:4-5). What of Mary? (Luk 1:28). Jesus grew in grace (Luke 2:52).
Beloved, have you experienced some wonderful works of grace in your life? sure you have if you are saved. That is a proof that perfection is a possibility. Grace must produce nothing other than perfection. That is the only thing he must deliver to God as the product of his working in us. Remember that Christ paid the price.
Grace, the wonderful and amazing grace, how sweet thy sound! It is the force behind the word; all things are possible for them that believe(Luke 18:27).We have earlier examined that faith, absolute, unwavering faith in the will ,promises of God triggers appropriate dimension of grace. So, if you believe, grace must be released!

No impossibility for grace except what is not the will of God. We need to have faith in grace so as not to hinder, limit or undermine its power in our lives. In fact, once grace is available; It does all the works, we are meant to rest.
Grace is the promised rest! (Hebrew 4:3),it leads a man into the finished works from the foundation of the earth which was massively made available by his death and resurrection at Calvary.
Now, I can rest because grace does the work. It can never be tired nor weary. Restful rest, Hallelujah! It is just another realm of life. No wonder those saints rejoiced in persecution; it was the effect of grace.
Beloved, grace is not without effect. We can do all things by grace! Check your life well and give grace 100% liberty to work. Watch out for the effect.

I give Grace the full liberty to work in and through me in Jesus name.
