Grace and Knowledge
2 Peter: Chapter 3 verse 18
But grow in the grace
of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
To Him be Glory both now and forever.
Isn’t it lovely to think that we can grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus. Today as we learn and read more about Him let us ask God Our Father to allow us more grace to really know His Son Jesus, our Saviour, more and more. Amen.
From the Book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R.Larman.
I wonder if we have grace and knowledge – how are we using it?
The Lord has given us knowledge – however it is good for us to try and increase that knowledge day by day. We can do that by learning something new i.e. a new craft or by reading we can really expand our knowledge.
It is good to have a vision or a dream of something that we would like to do –
so we will need knowledge to bring that to fruition.
As for Grace – well we need grace to have patience with our family and friends.
We need to have Grace that only The Lord can give us as we continue to live in this world with Peace and Love that we have when we walk with Jesus day by day.
With Grace and Knowledge we can give Glory to God our Heavenly Father for all the Blessings that he gives us day by day.
Even if there is only one small thing in your day today that you are happy and content with –
that is a small start to be thankful for.
*God Bless You Today with the Grace and Love of Jesus*
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 7
The fear of The LORD is the beginning
but fools despise wisdom
I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today. I do not want to be a fool. I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge. For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge.
I do know that I definitely need more!
Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day.
Also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.
Taken from ‘Drink from the Cup’ book by:J.M.R.Larman.
Well then what are we waiting for, just think we are priviliged to be able to ask God our Heavenly Father for more knowledge and wisdom.
Then of course we are to use it to the best of the ability that God gives us.
A good thing to ask for as well is discernment……so that we can discern what we are about to do at any particular time in our livcs. Day by day we need help with the decisions that we are to make in our every day living. We live only by the grace of God. As we said last time our God is an Awesome God. Just to think He alone gives us the knowlege and wisdom that we need to live our everyday lives here on this earth.
What a privelidge it is to belong to the one true Living God who is our Heavenly Father.
I pray that you recieve ‘The Peace of The Lord” today in your heart, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Especially if you are a Christian living with The Holy Spirit dwelling in you where ever you are at the moment.
Have a lovely Day
– * God Bless You * –
Fear of The Lord
Proverbs: Chapter 1 verse 7
The fear of The LORD
is the beginning of knowledge
fools despise wisdom
I think I shall ask The LORD for more knowledge and wisdom today, I do not want to be a fool, I pray that I do have the fear of The LORD and I certainly do not despise wisdom and knowledge.
For my part I know that I do love wisdom and knowledge, also I do know that I definitely need more! Thank you LORD God that you continue to fill me afresh each day, also with the knowledge and love of Jesus.
So let us just think where are we really going to get this knowledge and wisdom from……well I think it does help to read our Bible because it has been written for our learning. Therefore if we decide not to read, then we are limiting our brains to absorb knowledge and wisdom from the Apostles and followers of Jesus that are written about in the most Holy Book.
Lots of them were not clever people but with the account of their lives we can learn from their mistakes. (Hopefully we can!)
So where does the FEAR come from then?
You see we are not to be afraid of our God because He is the God of Love. Our only fear is to be that we really don’t acknowledge Him as we should and that we don’t always walk in the knowledge that He is our Heavenly Father and He Loves us even more than our earthly fathers love us.
We do fear being chastised by our earthly fathers and need to realize that our Heavenly Father does chastise us too.
So that FEAR OF THE LORD
is that we DO NOT need to be
FRIGHTENED OF THE LORD OUR GOD.
I hope you have a lovely day walking in the Love and Knowledge, Wisdom and Joy of our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Heavenly Father.
