PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE

“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” 2 Peter 1:4.

LIGHT FOR NOW: A believer in Christ is no ordinary person. He is a partaker of the divine nature.

As a Christian, you are born of God. This means that your origin is in God. You came from God. You are born of Him and the Bible records that whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world (1John 5:4). The believer in Christ is no ordinary person. He is a partaker of the divine nature. This means that you are in the God-class of being; you belong to the heavenly realm. Yu are an associate of the God-kind. As Jesus is, so are you in this world (1John 4:17). As Jesus is divine, so also a believer in Christ is also divine. The Bible records in John 5:26 that, “as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself”. This means that we have the same life with Christ. It is the divine life. It is called the Higher Life. It is what makes a believer absolutely indestructible. When this gains ascendency into your spirit man, then it will become your ascendency.

As a believer in Christ Jesus, divine health, success and prosperity are your inheritance and not a hope or a promise from God. This is because you are born of God’s incorruptible seed which is the Word (1 Peter 1:23). Therefore, the life in you cannot be corrupted by sickness or lack. You must refuse to accept that it is normal for you as a believer to be sick or suffer lack. You are  among those that cannot be infected by the diseases and sicknesses of this world. Jesus said in Mark 16:18 “…and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them”. If Jesus said it, then it is so. Meditate on this truth until it gains ascendency into you.

INSTRUCTION:Refuse to accommodate anything that is inconsistent with your divine nature.

PRAYER: Lord, I thank you for the divine life i have in you. As you are, so am i in this world, Amen.

QUOTE: When you do not know who you are, you become a plaything for the devil.
