Scripture: 2 Peter 1:2-4

2 Peter 1:2-4 says, “Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” Did God give us grace and peace? Yes! Did He say it would be multiplied? Yes! The knowledge of God is to grow and be completed. He has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him. How does God bring us into fullness? That fullness comes as we absorb the exceeding great and precious promises that through them we become partakers of the divine nature of Christ. Here is another passage in Scripture that says when we do what God says to do including praying in the Spirit, then the fullness of Christ is developed in us. An additional benefit is that we escape the corruption that is in the world. Praying in tongues not only develops Christ in us, but it also opens up avenues of escape from corruption. We may not know we are praying scriptural promises but He knows the prayers that are needed! Avenues of escape are in part a product of praying in the Holy Spirit. Do we need an avenue of escape right now? If we do, then let’s pray in the Spirit. It may very well be our path to freedom. Let’s start doing it in Jesus name and then resolve to keep doing it!
