Your success will be as a result of the gracious hand of the Lord upon you

Grace – God’s enabling power, giving you the ability to do what he has called you toPhilippians 4:13 (NLT) 13  For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Colossians 1:29 (NLT) 29  That’s why I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me.
