Good morning people desiring God more and more
I’m excited! I’m excited! I’m excited! I want to shout “GRACE! GRACE! GRACE!”
2 Peter 1:1-4 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ. To those who through the righteousness of our God and Saviour Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours: Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him Who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
These verses are crammed full of life-changing truth!!!! Read it slowly, meditate on it, in fact, I encourage all of us to memorise these words.
God’s grace is God’s divine power which contains everything we need for life and godliness! Did you see that?!
Grace is through the knowledge of God and so is divine power…the power to live life in a godly way. Again it all comes back to an ongoing and increasing revelation of Who God is.
Grace is the ability to participate in the divine nature; to live as Jesus did. This is the power and grace of God! But you can’t live like Jesus if you don’t know Him. And I remind us all, there is always more to discover about God!
Do you need power in your life today to overcome temptation and live holy? Then pursue knowing God better, and as a result, intentionally choose to walk in the divine nature which is the grace and power of God. QUIT TRYING, TRYING, TRYING and start being transformed by the Spirit of God!
Zechariah 4:6b “Not by might nor by power (your own strength is futile!), but by My Spirit,” says the Lord Almighty.
