We become influencers, knowing that God has called us to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath (see Deut. 28:13).
As believers we should be influencing every aspect of the world. We are to not only rise above adverse circumstances but also to be leaders in a lost world. We are to be light in the darkness. If we are the head and not the tail, we should be leading in all aspects of society. But how do we distinguish ourselves in this way? Through God’s incredible grace.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us… (Eph. 3:20 NKJV)
We know God is able. That’s what Paul told us in Ephesians. If God is able, why aren’t we automatically head and shoulders above everyone else? It’s because of what we choose to believe about ourselves. God places us right where we need to be, and He has given us the tools to excel. But these tools must be accessed by His power—which is His grace.

You might say, “But John, I’ve been trying to do well and other people are still doing much better than I am!” It is not by our works that we succeed but by God's power at work within us, and that power is accessed by faith. Faith is like a container for grace. God’s grace will only fill whatever container we bring to Him. If we bring Him a bucket, He will give us a bucketful. But if we believe for grace in the measure of an ocean, then He will supply an ocean of His empowerment to us!

Do you believe God promises you only what it takes to get by, or do you believe that His grace can position you to excel and succeed? Are you ready to tap into the full potential of grace and have significant influence on everyone around you?
