Grace Beyond Measure

May grace and shalom be yours in full measure, as you come to a full knowledge of God and Yeshua our Lord. God’s power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, through our knowing the One who called us to his own glory and goodness. By these he has given us valuable and superlatively great promises, so that through them you might come to share in God’s nature and escape the corruption which evil desires have brought into the world. 

For this very reason, try your hardest to furnish your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with perseverance, perseverance with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if you have these qualities in abundance, they keep you from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. Indeed, whoever lacks them is blind, so shortsighted that he forgets that his past sins have been washed away. 

Therefore, brothers, try even harder to make your being called and chosen a certainty. For if you keep doing this, you will never stumble. Thus you will be generously supplied with everything you need to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah.
2Peter 2-11 CJB


We are to try even harder to make your being called and chosen a certainty. We do this not by faking it until we make it. We do this by furnishing our faith … with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with perseverance, perseverance with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if you have these qualities in abundance, they keep you from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

What is furnishing our faith, you may be asking. Peter makes it very understandable. Move in like weighty furniture: goodness with knowledge; knowledge with self control; self control with perseverance; perseverance with godliness; godliness with brotherly affection and brotherly affection with love. 

He further tells us that if we place weight on these things with every thought, deed and action in abundance, they will keep us from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

Wow! Abba, we come before You today and repent for our missing the mark. For not lining up with what You place weight on. Our desire is for Your authentic outpouring of Your Holy Spirit. Have it all, Abba. We lay down our agenda, our worship, our plans. We lay it all down before You and receive Your authentic Ruach HaKodesh in Yeshua’s Name.

We declare that we will try even harder to make being called and chosen a certainty. We will furnish our faith from this point forward as You have instructed. We command barrenness to leave!, blindness to leave, eyes and ears to be opened! That we may receive the full knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah!

We commit to keep doing this. We receive Your Word through Peter that by doing as You have instructed, we will not stumble. That we will be generously supplied with everything that we need to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah. Amen!


Blessing and Shalom-Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Scripture Of The Week By JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 2, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2 (NKJV)

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 us that the more we increase in knowing our Father God, and our Savior Jesus, the more His grace and peace will increase in our lives. 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 that we need to seek new each day. Whatever we may have experienced of God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and provision in the past, be encouraged to KNOW that as we seek to know Him more each day we’ll never exhaust the supply His sufficient favor, divine assistance, and peace that passes understanding. May His grace and peace be multiplied to you today.
