LIVING THE LIFE OF FAITH

“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,” 2 Peter 1:2-3

Peter understood what it meant to put our faith in the Word of God and in the Promises of God more than anyone else. Peter always put himself in situations where he needed to know that God was still with him and that God still loved him, and so he rested his faith on the promises of God, and it worked. He knew he could trust God.

It is super important that we know and accept who we are. We should be living the life God intended for us. If not, we will live our days in frustration. The sooner we commit to living the life God intended for us, the sooner we will live in His peace.

Even though we are new creatures in Jesus, we are also that person who is struggling with life. When we are saved by faith, then God’s righteousness has been demonstrated in giving us faith so we can believe and then we are saved.

Sometimes it is hard to believe when we look at our present circumstances, but God has already given us everything we need for ‘life,’ not just for ‘god-likeness,’ only through the connection we have with God. We have it now. It is the Word of God in our mouth.

“as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,” (2 Peter 1:3)

This Bible verse reveals that all we need for our lives; God has already given us. He prepared us for anything. All the information, relationships, and opportunities have already been given to us through knowing Him.

“He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!” (Proverbs 28:19)

What do you have right now? Whatever it is, it is the preview into whatever God has for you next. Do well with what God has given you, and you will walk the pathway into His next step.

God’s promises are great and precious because they are greater than any problem we will ever face, and they are precious because they are the only thing we have, which makes them the most valuable thing we have within our reach.
