Multiplying Grace

2 Peter 1:2-3 (NET) May grace and peace be lavished on you as you grow in the rich knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord! I can pray this because his divine power has bestowed on us everything necessary for life and godliness through the rich knowledge of the one who called us by his own glory and excellence.

When Kent was sixteen years old, he joined a secret society in his neighborhood and got mixed up in a lot of bad things. By the time he was 19, he heard the gospel and accepted the Lord Jesus. Because the secret society he joined was deeply involved in occult practices, he knew how to conjure demons and demonstrate some demonic power to do magic and other dark arts. But after he became a believer and was delivered, he wanted also to know the power of God and walk in it because he knew that Jesus had more power than the demons he knew. He also understood that in order to demonstrate the power of a spirit, you have to know that spirit and understand how to please it.

After studying the lives of those he knew who walked in the power of God, he observed that some things were common with all of them. He observed that they were all baptized in the Holy Spirit and they spoke in tongues, they were very conscious of the presence of the Holy Spirit within them and never felt alone, and they had an unusual sense of closeness with God and love for Him that was evident.

The grace of God is the power of God at work within the believer that causes him to do the things of God. It is through this power that we cast out devils, manifest authority over sin, heal the sick, possess our possessions in God, manifest the miraculous, etc. If a believer desires to walk in multiplied grace, he must walk in fellowship with the Lord through the Holy Spirit. One reason God made man is to fellowship with man and have a family of sons and daughters. He wants so much to share His glory and joy with you.

We see from today's today's Bible Text that grace and peace is lavished on us as we grow in the rich knowledge of God. We are expected to continually grow in the knowledge of God as we spend time with Him through His word and prayers.

Go into today determined to draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Remember that God wants to be close to you more than you want to be close to Him. He loves you and is on your side.

Prayer: Father, teach me your ways so that I will walk in your reality. Help me to be closer to you more each day. Amen.
