I Am a Partaker in His Divine Nature

Daily God Walk for Wednesday, October 26, 2011

 His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. – 2 Peter 1:3-4

 We have learned that all of the power in the world is of no value to us unless we realize we have the authority to use it. The police have the power to stop a crime. They have training and they have weapons, but if they don’t realize they have authority they will sit back and say, “What can I do?”

Peter tells us that God has given us divine power and everything we need for life and godliness. That power is released through our knowledge of him. The authority to use the power of God in us is limited by the knowledge we have of him.

If we only see God as saving us from hell, then our relationship with him will be limited to getting our ticked punched for heaven. If, however, we have all the knowledge of all he has revealed about himself for us, then all of heaven is available to us.

God has imparted to us his divine nature with the hope that we would realize the power of the Christ within us and the authority he has given us to use that power for the benefit of the kingdom. The divine nature he has given us through faith in Christ gives us the power to be set free from sin, but if we do not realize that power and the authority to use that power, sin will still dominate our lives.

We are not only given power and authority over sin but we are given power and authority over the devil, the world and spiritual wickedness in the heavenly realm (Ephesians 6:12). God has given his divine nature to all who believe so that we can participate in the kingdom of God on earth now and in heaven for eternity.

It is time to gain knowledge of God and his plan for us so that  we will realize the authority to use the power his has placed in us.

 Prayer: Lord, help me to realize the power and the authority you have given me. In Jesus name, amen.
