TEXT: 2 PETER 1:2-4
2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Key verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
In today’s bible text, Peter is telling the children of God that by virtue of your
knowing God and knowing Jesus, you have entitlements. You have blessings; you
have provisions that God has made available for you. There are benefits that accrue
to you because you know God, because you know Jesus and these blessings are the
blessings of grace and peace. Grace refers to unmerited things which by your power
and knowledge you could not have gotten. You could not have acquired them, yet
they would come from God freely. What comes by grace is a free gift. They are gifts
to you because you know Jesus. They are the provisions for your joy, provisions for
your peace, provisions for your satisfaction, provisions of prosperity in your life,
because you know God, because you know Jesus Christ. His divine power has given
us all things that pertain to life; everything you need or desire in this world as you
live and walk in this life. Every desire of your heart and every good thing you wish
for yourself are inside the package that God has provided for you.
These goodly provisions from Jesus are to make you live well, to make you live
joyful, to make you live happy, and it relates to everything about your life, about
yourself, about your family, about work, about your marriage and about anything
that will make you happy, joyful and peaceful. All these provisions have been made
by God for your full benefit. This package also covers your education, relationship
with fellow human beings, in the way you want or desire it. God has placed at your
disposal a full package of blessings, not only to meet your physical needs but also
the spiritual. God is also concerned about your spiritual well-being, your spiritual
success, your spiritual advancement, your spiritual achievement, and your spiritual
attainment. These provisions and blessings are there for your asking. Earnestly ask
God for the good things you need in life that your joy may be full.
Thought for the day: Your blessings are waiting for your asking.
Song for the day: Nothing prayers cannot do, Jesus answers prayers.
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 36-37; Acts 23:1-11
