1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain;

Unbelief is one of the things that makes the grace of God ineffective.

Hebrews 3:16-19 For who, having heard, rebelled? Indeed, was it not all who came out of Egypt, led by Moses? Now with whom was He angry forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

We have access to this diverse grace by faith (Romans 5:2).

Unbelief robs you of your help and whatever else you are trusting God for, just as it did those who came from Egypt walking into the promised land.

Hebrews 3:12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God;

Abraham believed God’s word over his physical senses to see Isaac.*( *Genesis 15:6* )*

The word of God is a carrier of all the kinds of graces of God.

The word you believe carries grace for your healing, prosperity, wisdom, and all those other things you are trusting God for.

Hebrews 4:16 Let us, therefore, come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

Grace is one of the forms of God’s answers to mankind. It loses its impact when not believed.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Grace is the sent word that delivers the specific desires you are trusting God for when believed.

1 Corinthians 10:9 nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents;

The children of Israel lost their spiritual covering when they complained and murmured.

Numbers 11:1-2 Now when the people complained, it displeased the LORD; for the LORD heard it, and His anger was aroused. So the fire of the LORD burned among them and consumed some in the outskirts of the camp. Then the people cried out to Moses, and when Moses prayed to the LORD, the fire was quenched.

Complaining means you have stepped out of faith. It is impossible to please God without faith ( Hebrews 11:6 ).

It’s through faith that we have access to this Grace. Therefore, complaining, murmuring, and ingratitude block the flow of Grace.

Jeremiah 30:19 Then out of them shall proceed thanksgiving And the voice of those who make merry; I will multiply them, and they shall not diminish; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.

Thanksgiving, celebration, and a heart of gratitude draw grace into every affair of your life. They set you up for divine invasion and the supernatural hand of God.

Philippians 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

It is very human to complain, but to give thanks when things are going bad is divine.

Matthew 14:19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.

Jesus looked up and gave thanks. The heart of gratitude invites God into the environment.

May the Holy Spirit help you overcome any unbelief and doubt that you may move into the diverse graces of God as you pray along with this audio.
