“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” 2 Peter 1:3.
LIGHT FOR NOW: Christ is the fulfillment of all of God’s promises.
Some Christians still have the Old Testament mentality of trying to get something from God; trying to make the promises of God come to pass in their lives. But to have this kind of mentality is to be completely ignorant of what Christ came to do. It is to operate the military law in a democracy. You cannot operate an Old Testament law in the New Testament. You cannot live the life of the Old Testament and think you are living the Christian life. Christ is the fulfillment of all of God’s promises. This means that with the coming of Christ, there is no single promise of God that has not been fulfilled in the life of the believer in Christ. What else would you desire of someone who has already given you Himself? All the promises in the Old Testament have been fulfilled and abrogated. If a country amends its constitution, will someone still operate under the old provisions?
The truth is that God had already given us Himself, His kingdom, and everything we need. When you come into Christ, everything belongs to you. There is nothing left for God to give to you. He has already given you everything. You have become a joint-heir with Christ. Quit struggling. God has already given you everything that pertains to life and godliness. Nothing is left out. Stop struggling or worrying about your bills. Enjoy your life in Christ. Come into a life of rest. Live the Word. Study and meditate on His word and you will discover that everything you could ever need has already been provided for you in Christ.
INSTRUCTION: Enjoy the life of God at work in your life.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for the fulfilment of all your promises in Christ. I walk in the consciousness that all things are mine, in Jesus Name. Amen.
QUOTE: You cannot operate a military law in a democracy.
