Where sin increases, grace superabounds with victory. "17" in the Bible represents Victory, and "5" speaks of grace.
"Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:" (Romans 5: 20)
In verses which spell out the curse, you can see God's grace through Christ.
First of all, the curse comes from the law:
"For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them." (Galatians 3: 10)
"Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace." (Galatians 5: 4)
Instead of relying on "flesh" or "self-effort" as our arm, let us rely on Jesus and His grace in our lives. Jesus is often referenced in the Scripture as the "arm of Salvation"
"And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him." (Isaiah 59: 16)
In Christ, we have the over-abundant victory:
"37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." (Romans 8: 37)
"9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong." (2 Corinthians 12: 9-10)
