EXPERIENCING GOD’S BLESSED AND FULFILLED LIFE!
For “He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it” (1 Peter 3:10-11).
Everyone wants to experience God’s blessed and fulfilled life. Without God helping you through His divine grace, you can never experience this kind of life no matter how you try. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that he who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit. Let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to experience His blessed and fulfilled life. God’s blessed and fulfilled life is found absolutely in obedience to God’s Word of life forever.
Except by God’s divine grace, no one is qualified to experience His blessed and fulfilled life. That is why the Bible says in 2 Peter 1:3, “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.” Therefore, God’s divine power has given to a Christian His blessed and fulfilled life to enjoy always in the presence of the Lord. God wants you to turn away from evil, do good and seek for peace in order to receive His divine grace for blessed and fulfilled life. God’s blessed and fulfilled life is indeed the absolute will of God for all Christians in life forever.
Until you learn to humble yourself in the Mighty Hand of God, you can never receive grace for a blessed and fulfilled life of God. That is the reason why the Bible says in James 4:6, “But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to humble himself before God in life, he definitely receives grace and divine power for His blessed and fulfilled life from the Lord. God gives grace to the humble that learns to refrain their tongues from evil, and their lips from speaking deceit in life. A Christian should learn to humble himself before God in life. A life that is devoid of God’s grace is of course a life that will continuously lack fulfillment in life forever.
Daily Tip: Humble yourself in the Mighty Hand of God in order to receive His divine grace for a blessed and fulfilled life forever. Shalom!
