Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 4:4-5(KJV); Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
A Christian functioning under the law of faith will always be better than one under the law of works.
This is because the spiritual realm rewards a man under the law of works only according to what he has done. It rewards a man under the law of faith according to what God has done.
Inevitably, under the law of works, your results are limited. The standard is your strength, endurance and patience. Under the law of faith, results are based on the limitless reservoir of God’s power and ability.
In fact, when you labour under your own ability, you immediately disqualify yourself from certain scriptures.
You cannot claim that God is able to do EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THAT WE ASK OR THINK, according to the power that worketh in us (Ephesians 3:20). It is faith in Him that makes you eligible for what is over and above what you can do.
You cannot claim that God is able to make ALL GRACE abound to you so that having ALL SUFFICIENCY in ALL THINGS at ALL TIMES, you may abound in EVERY GOOD WORK (2 Corinthians 9:8).
The reward of faith is the extra edge and advantage in whatsoever you do. It makes you peerless in your pursuits.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The spiritual realm rewards a man under the law of works only according to what he has done. It rewards a man under the law of faith according to what God has done.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I grow in faith every day because I understand its rewards. My life is unique. The favour that surrounds me is incomparable. Greatness is manifest through me because the Great God labours in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
