Knowing the Lord 5

2 Peter 1:2 (KJV) Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord

Clement Amadi came from a very blessed family and everyone in his village acknowledged that his family was especially blessed. All of them were born again and very prosperous and successful in their various pursuits.

They used to say in their village that “may God bless us like he blessed the Amadi family”. The first doctor, first lawyer, and first pilot in their community came from the Amadi family.

Their family built a free hospital with state of the art equipment for the community.

Records have it that when the European missionaries first came to that community, their great grandfather was the only one in the village who believed and welcomed them into his home. Because of this, the peace of God was made to rest in that home and several years later it manifested in ways that brought envy from the rest of the villagers.

The peace of God, just like the grace of God, is a spiritual substance that causes things to go well and prosperously. Jesus told his apostles that when they go to a community and find a house that is worthy, their peace can rest upon that house, but if the house is not worthy, their peace will come back to them (see Matthew 10:13).

We see in Philippians 4:6 that when we pray, this substance called the peace of God will mount guard in hearts.

The knowledge of God does not just multiply grace, it also multiplies peace. Because of this peace, everything in your life will work according to God’s plan. You will prosper in all that you do and be fruitful in every good work.

Go into today asking the Lord to help you know him more. The fulfillment of your Divine destiny depends on this.

Prayer: Lord, give me a hunger and thirst for you that would not go away. Help me give myself to disciplines that would help me know you more this year. Amen.
