Opening Text:Psalm 127:1-5; 1Cor. 1: 26-29)."
Winning in life goes beyond human strength.Excelling in destiny is not directly proportional to your skill. Of course, you require smartness, tireless input, unbeatable diligence, wisdom and expertise to make it in life. All these are necessary but they are grossly insufficient to give you the kind of success that God has ordained for you. Struggling and sweating is needed, but they are not enough! 

There is an ingredient of destiny you cannot do without.It is called GRACE.By definition,Grace is  "the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it", 

  When you lack grace,you lack distinction.Outside grace,disgrace,defeat and disappointment is what remains. Life is frustrating without grace!
Our text says "“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord watch over the city the watchman waketh but in vain”
 The builders build and watchmen watch! Those are efforts, but except you link up with the Lord, they end in vanity. But when you have the grace of God, every input you make is amplified to produce unimaginable results

There are many people who are very smart, yet they are losers because ”…It is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy” (Romans 9:16).   Goliath was a mighty man of war with many years of experience and expertise, yet he lost to a small boy who carried a small stone that might not even be able to kill a small bird! 

No matter how weak you think you are, the grace of God is available to take over for you and put you where you may naturally never get to in life. At the same time, if you think you are a strong man, let me remind you that there are people and forces that are stronger than you, and except for the grace of God, you will remain in struggles. You can’t make any impact in life except God backs you up.

The Manifold Works Of Grace
1.Grace Promotes:It is grace that catapaulted Joseph to the throne in Egypt,where he was not even qualified to contest elections
2.Grace Preserves: Jonah ought to have perished in the sea of disobedience but grace swallowed him up and vomited him to his zone of destiny
3.Grace Provides when all effort fails
4.Grace can Multiply your input.Was it not grace that turn David’s stone into a bullet? Or how on earth do you think a small stone can kill such a warrior?
5.Grace has the ability to erase your past mistakes and misdeeds: Jacob’s name should have disappeared from the annals of history but grace will not allow that.He cheated his brother and deceived his father…yet today the Almighty is still called God of Jacob! What a wonder!
            Do you intend to win your life battles,all you need is grace.
