Excellent In Every Good Work - June 1st 2024

“ And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8 KJV).


Our opening verse says God is able to direct all the grace you require for an excellent life towards you. James 4:6 says, “...he giveth more grace...”; He endows you with the competencies, special skills and abilities required for excellence in all things. Hallelujah!

It brings to mind the words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 3:5 AMPC: “Not that we are fit (qualified and sufficient in ability) of ourselves to form personal judgments or to claim or count anything as coming from us, but our power and ability and sufficiency are from God.” Blessed be God! This is the life God has given you. He’s made you so efficient, effective and capable of any good work.

This should give you the mindset of endless possibilities. You have grace to excel in your job, academics and daily pursuits. You’re up to any task. So, like Paul, you can boldly affirm “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13).

Once you’re chosen for something, there’s an assurance that it would turn out excellently. You make great things happen, because you’re specially graced to produce excellence. Read the words of the psalmist in Psalm 1:3 (NKJV). It says, “He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.” That’s you; glory to God! Then Colossians 1:10 says, “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.” 


"I excel in every good work. Once I’m chosen for something, there’s an assurance that it would turn out excellently. I make great things happen because of God’s divine power at work in me. He has endowed me with the competencies, special skills and abilities I require for excellence in all things. Blessed be God!"
