Grace Peace and Power from God-According to Knowledge

The grace and the peace of God, is always available for us, as Christians, at any time, in abundance, but we can only receive them, according to what we know about God, and his Word.

In 2 Peter 1:2 it says, that the grace and peace of God, are for us in abundance, but it also says, that it is according to knowing God the Father, and his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. We need to know God on a level, and to know his Word, on a level, which will make us able to receive, that abundant grace and peace from God, on that level.

The same applies about the power of God, supplying everything we need, for life and godliness, as it says in 2 Peter 1:3. Yes, but it all depends on our level of knowing God, and on the level of knowing his Word. It is not enough to know, that God has an abundant grace and peace for us, as Christians.

We also receive them from God, on the level of our faith, on the level we believe. Some of us, have a strong faith to receive anything from God, but some of us also have a not so strong faith, for receiving from God.

Even Jesus was commenting about the faith of various people, that they have either a strong faith, or small faith, or even not faith at all. And at the end, in order for us to have strong faith in God, and his Word, we need first of all, to know God personally, and to know his Word on a certain level.

The level of us knowing God personally, and the level of our knowledge of the Word of God, will determine, the level of our faith, and that in turn, will determine, how much we receive from God, not just his peace and grace for us, but anything else in life.

There is so much trouble out there in the world today, so that the heart of a Christian or unbeliever, can sink into the darkness of despair. All that Covid 19 stuff, has created even more fearful event in the world, to make your head spin.

As a Christian, do you find yourself sometimes also sinking in despair and anxiety, even just by watching what is going on in the News? Do you sometimes feel fearful and worried, what is going to happen next in all this situation of trouble and bad news in the world? If you do, you are not alone!

Even as a Christians, we can fall into depression and negative way of thinking just by watching what is going around us, and in the world.

But, as a Christian, you have the great advantage, in comparison of people of this world, without God! What is the advantage? Well, the solid truth and fact, that you have the Spirit of the Almighty God, living on the inside of you, the one who is also called the ‘Comforter’ in the original Greek language by which the New Testament is written.

You see, when we read chapter 14 and verse 1 from the Gospel of John, we can clearly see, that Jesus told his disciples, not to let their hearts be troubled. That is not an option, I believe that is a command! God does not tell us “Well, if you want….Click here to continue…

Do Not Let Your Heart Be Troubled – John 14:27

The Peace of God, in a Troubled Heart

We have peace with God, but it is our responsibility and not God’s to not let our hearts be troubled. What makes our hearts be troubled? By choosing to worry about things. By not having faith in the promises of God for our situation.

By looking to our circumstances and believing them, more than we believe God. By believing what Google and our friends and families tell us more than what God tells us about the situation we are in. 

All those things trouble our hearts and interfere with the peace God is giving us, so that we can not fully live with the the peace of God in us.

Let Not Your Hear Be Troubled-John 14

Jesus said in John 14:27, that he leaves his peace with us. But he also said, that we should not let our heart be troubled.

What happens, if we let our heart be anxious or troubled in the storms of life? Well, even if Jesus gives us his peace, we can not fully experience it, if we let our heart be troubled and influenced by the storms and difficulties of our life.

If we look at Philippians 4:6, 7 we can see that Apostle Paul was saying the same thing. 

First he said that we should not be anxious about anything. Then, after that the peace of Christ will guard our minds and hearts in Christ Jesus.

We see the same principle. First, we have to decide, to believe the Word of God, for any situation or difficult circumstance in our life. If we decide to do that, and if we are willing to do that, then we will experience the peace of God, in all its fullness.

We can not allow the troubles of our life, to make us anxious, by us not believing the Word of God and his promises, and to expect to experience the peace of Christ.

His peace is always there for us, but we decide if we allow the troubles around us, to take control of our thinking and believing, or we decide to believe the Word of God and his promises.
