Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2
Multiplied? I love this! Peter starts his letter with a multiplication of grace and peace to the reader. He says “grace and peace can be multiplied to you as you grow in the knowledge of God and Christ Jesus.” So it is possible to have a multiplied amount of grace and peace in life. Sounds pretty good to me, but how? The answer is in getting to know your Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus more each day.
So how do I get to know Him better and does He want me to know more about Him? The answer is yes, He wants you to learn as much about Him as your possibly can. That is why He has made so many avenues available to you. You can read books about God and creation. You can go to church and hear sermons about God and learn so much about Him and His Son, but the best way to get to know the Father, Son and Spirit is to spend time talking to Him. I’m not just talking about your request and concerns in life, I’m talking about every aspect of life. Talk over every area of your life with God. Have a running conversation with Him throughout every day. Learn to listen and hear the direction that His Spirit is speaking on the inside of you and be quick to respond when you do hear.
Today I want to encourage you to set aside special time to talk and listen to God today. Recognize that the time you spend totally dedicated to Him is the most precious time of the day. Then go ahead and take Him with you all day long by talking to Him often. Respond in a way that you know would bring honor and glory to Him and listen to all the things He wants to speak to your heart. Soon you will see grace and peace being multiplied in all areas of you life and it will be good!
