Everything we need…

His divine power has given us everything we need for (2 Peter 1:3a NIV) life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3b NASB) through the knowledge of him that hath called us to (2 Peter 1:3c KJV) His own glory and excellence. (2 Peter 1:3d NASB)

I was buzzing over this word sometime this week (I can’t remember exactly when) but it was awesome…

Sometimes we just don’t appreciate what we’ve already been given…

For life – that is the practical, physical needs which we have…

And godliness – that is the practical, spiritual needs which we have…

Not one and not the other – but both together…

God does not divorce the physical from the spiritual…

He treats both as important and makes provision for them together through the Knowledge of – the close, personal relationship which we have with – His Son – Jesus Christ…

This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. (John 17:3 NASB)

 Through the Knowledge of Him…

As we have a close, personal, intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and with God the Father through the indwelling Holy Spirit teaching our new spirit and our heart to focus on Him and enjoy relationship, friendship with Him then this releases practically everything which we need for life (physical provision) and godliness (spiritual provision) through our on-going, every day “walking with the Lord” (like Enoch walked) – our friendship with Him…

How beautiful is that?

🙂

It is beautiful…

How simple is that?

It is simple…

🙂

Praise You Jesus…

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33 NIV)

How beautiful is this?

It is so beautiful…

God doesn’t want us focusing on how to “look after ourselves” He just wants us focusing on how beautiful He is and how perfect He is and how much He loves us and delights to look after us and provide for us and make us more like Him – He is the Author of Life – He is the Giver of Every Good and Perfect Gift – there is not a Gift in existence which the Lord is not the Giver of and there is not a Gift in existence which He will not give us when it is in accordance with His will for us at the “right time” to reveal His Glory more fully through us…

Everything in its season…

For His Own Glory…

The ceasing of the fretting and the looking at Him is all He wants – this is trust…

As we are in that position all of heaven opens above us and we see the power of the provision of Almighty God flowing down all over us…

Praise His Holy Name…

We are blessed with Abraham the Believer…

That’s another scripture which the Lord gave me earlier on this week…

We are blessed with Abraham the believer who God blessed in all things that He should be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth with the blessing of God – in so many words – that all the nations of the earth should be blessed through him – through his Seed – Christ – and through us the Body of Christ alive on planet earth today – we are blessed with Abraham the believer in all things – to be generous and give – once we are in that “other-centred” position of “Knowing Christ” and being focused on Him we can ask whatever we wish and it will be given us as we will be asking in accordance with His will and He will hear us and our joy will be made full…

Yes it will…

Our joy will be made full (preach it Andrew)… 🙂

We were created for righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit – did you know that?

We were…

God’s intention for every one of His creatures was for them to enjoy righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit…

He died so that each could enjoy this – all died on the cross with Him so that each could enjoy this – only those who take this offer of salvation – Eternal Life – by faith can receive it but it is His will – His desire – that all should receive it – He wants none to perish…

It’s a past tense – has given…

And it’s “unlocked” through our every day, moment by moment, walking with and enjoyment of the Lord with us…

Literally walking together, talking together, sharing life together and as we do He pours out the provision both in the physical and in the spiritual…

It can’t get much simpler than that…

Praise You Jesus, You are Worthy, Your Blood availed for me, Thank You Father, Thank You Holy Spirit, Thank You Lord…

I love You Lord – Thank You for Your provision in my life… 🙂

Love in the Lord,

Andrew

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Technical Director - Design, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew
