JoBeth100Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2 KJV

Are you in need of abundant grace and peace? Grace is undeserved favor and divine assistance. Peace is tranquility, harmony and freedom from disturbance or affliction. The Biblical definition of knowledge is based on understanding from experience. This verse exhorts that the more we increase in knowing our Father God and Jesus the more His grace and peace will increase in us. Like the Hebrews in the wilderness that had to gather fresh manna each day, Jesus is the Bread of Life that God has provided for us to seek in each new day. Whatever we may have experienced of God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and provision in the past, be encouraged to KNOW that we can seek Him for the sufficient grace with peace and hope in His divine assistance for all we need each and every day. May grace and peace in the knowledge of Jesus be multiplied unto you today.
