Grace is a free and unmerited favour of God, as manifested in the salvation of sinners and the bestowal of blessings. I like to think of grace as a supernatural gift that is undeserving, not labored for or unearned, yet ours to keep and enjoy. For this reason the best example of grace personified is in the individuality of Jesus Christ, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). It is important to mention that grace embodies the true nature of the will of God for man. Which are manifested in Love, blessings, glory, Favor, peace, dominion and salvation.
One may ask, what then does it mean to live in the supernatural not to mention supernatural grace. This is a realm above every other realms of the spirit. It is the state of living in the body but not of the body. The state of complete and perfect believe that the presence of God has dominion and authority over the things of the flesh and that of the spirit. Therefore supernatural grace is the glory of God made manifest to the needs of humans who believe in the omnipotent presence of God.”Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”- 2 Corinthians 12:8-9. This therefore implies that grace is not of sight, not of man but completely with God.
To this end, to live in the supernatural gift of Grace is to live in continuous fellowship and absolute trust of the supreme power of God. Looking at the story of Esther, “She was taken to King Xerxes in the royal residence in the tenth month, the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”-Esther 2:16-17.
Romans has told us that “no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”-Romans 3:20-24
Living in the supernatural gift of Grace implies absolute surrender and trust in the existing power of God to handle issues of life in ways that best favors us, bless us, reveal His love for us and above all give His name and throne all the Glory it deserves. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”-John 1:14.
Since we understand that grace is believing in the power of God to work things for our good as the Prophet Jeremiah said “O Lord. If you heal me, I will be truly healed; if you save me, I will be truly saved. My praises are for you alone!” (Jeremiah 17:14).
