God Will Do It Himself

What I've learned along the way is that God truly is the God of ALL GRACE. Every ounce of grace comes from God. Grace isn't unmerited favor. Luke 2:40 states that the grace of God was upon Jesus. Jesus was not the recipient of unmerited favor. If anyone merited God's favor it was Jesus. Grace is empowerment. It is a supernatural infusion of God's miracle making blessing.
