2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him…
In my mind the Bible is so simple to understand. And the simplicity that is revealed as we read it, is so powerful to change our lives. Just like the scripture above, it clearly states that through God’s divine power He has given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness.
Notice the tense in which this statement is written. It says “Hath Given”. Now, is this past tense, present tense or future tense? Yes, it is past tense.
So, if we read this verse with that in mind, it simply says that God has already given you “ALL THINGS” that pertain to life and godliness. In other words, everything that you need for life things like food, clothing, jobs, finances, HEALING etc. God has already rendered these things unto you. The same with godliness, everything that you need to live a godly Christian life like righteousness, holiness, power and authority etc. has already been given to you by God’s divine power.
You may be asking “If that is true, then where is it at?” This is a very simple question to answer. When you read the above verse it says that these things are obtained through the knowledge of Him. So it comes down to “knowledge concerning Him, Jesus”.
It is like this. Let’s say that you are in a hard spot of some sort. Maybe you need finical help or healing from a disease or sickness that threatens your life. Well as this verse proclaims, Jesus has already provided the financial need and or the healing for your body. You already have it, but because you lack knowledge of it, you can’t use what you don’t know you have.
What if you have ten dollars in your savings account at the bank and you are facing foreclosure on your home. Your situation is that you need twenty thousand dollars or your home will be taken from you. Then some wealthy man hears about your dilemma, goes to your bank and deposits fifty thousand dollars into your account. At this point you have more than enough money to pay your mortgage. However, if you lack knowledge of the deposit the wealthy man placed into your account, you will still live under a huge amount of stress, worry and anxiety because in your mind there is only ten dollars in your bank account.
The point is because you lack knowledge concerning what the wealthy man did for you; you cannot act on the provision he provided for you.
In this same way Jesus has already made provision for finances, healing and everything else you will ever need. But because we lack knowledge concerning Him and His provision we cannot act in faith and receive the miracles that He died and rose again to give us.
Get in the Word and find out what God has already given to you and by FAITH receive that provision and live in God’s victory!
