Overwhelming GraceThursday, August 4, 2016
2 Peter 1:2
“God’s desire is that we may now increasingly be overwhelmed with grace as his divine influence within us and become fully acquainted with the awareness of our oneness. The way he has always known us is realized in Jesus our Master.”
Today, I just sat and read this verse over and over. God’s desire=that we be increasingly overwhelmed with grace (His unearned, undeserved, unmerited favor) as his divine influence within us. His divine influence is in us and He wants us to be so aware of it that it’s overwhelming. He wants us to be fully acquainted with the awareness (knowledge of the fact) of our oneness. John 14:20 says, “In that day you will know that just as I am in my Father, you are in me and I am in you!”
Who are we? We are one with God and have His undeserved, unearned favor and God wants us to know it!
Today, keep God’s desire before you. He lives in you! You're one with Him and His grace is your divine influence. That makes you an overcomer!
