Enjoy What He’s Given You,
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 (2 Peter 1:3).
Galatians 4:1 says, “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all.” The heir is one who has an inheritance. However, though he owns everything, as long as he’s a child, he can’t enjoy his inheritance; rather, he’s placed under tutors and instructors, to bring him up to maturity.
This is what God does for us through the ministry of His Word. We’re taught and tutored on our inheritance in Christ. Even though all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21), you’ll not be able to enjoy your inheritance, if you’re not trained in the Word. It’s the reason the Lord gave the ministry gifts to the Church: “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints…” (Ephesians 4:11-12).
We read in our opening verse that His divine power has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. What does that mean? It means you have everything that has to do with life; they’re yours now to enjoy! If you’re not enjoying your inheritance today as you should, it’ll be for one simple reason; something the Lord said in Hosea 4:6: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” It’s ignorance that makes some of God’s children walk through life, suffering and afflicted with pain.
So, refuse to be ignorant. The quality of your life is the direct result of the measure of knowledge of God’s Word in you. You can’t have a life greater than your understanding, and application of spiritual truths. Keep living in, and growing by the Word, and you’ll live to your highest potentials in life. Keep the Word in your heart and in your mouth always, for with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation. That means you appropriate your inheritance in Christ Jesus, with your faith-filled confessions.
Blessed Father, I thank you for giving me all things that pertain unto life and godliness, freely to enjoy. You’ve made known to me the path of life; you’ve filled me with joy in your presence, and eternal pleasures at your right hand. You’re my light, and the glory of my life. In you I have health, prosperity, and abundance, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
