Grace and Peace

Today I was reading in 2Peter 1, I to pause at verse 2!

"Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord." 

A commentator noted that 'grace and peace are always mentioned in this order'. 

When we first know the grace of God, that saving grace- saved not according to any merit on our part, but purely by His grace as we place our faith in Jesus' sacrifice on the cross...

then we can know true peace. 

These, grace and peace, are multiplied unto us---  how?  Lord knows when we are battling Lyme, we surely need grace and peace multiplied

Grace and peace are 'multiplied through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord'.

Do you know Him? 

Are you getting to know Him?  The more you know Him, the more you will experience His grace and peace.

As you lay there battling Lyme- these days are not 'wasted', and need not be lonely...  As a Believer, the LORD is always with you... the Wonderful Counselor, Teacher-- He is with you now; eager to illumine more of His presence, His being to you.

Prayer is you first avenue in which to hear from Him, and for you to share with Him.  There is nothing hid from Him- and He delights in your coming to Him with your thoughts, concerns, dreams, needs....and even more delightful is to hear His still, quiet Word whispered to the depths of your soul...

He speaks to us through His Word.  On days that reading is beyond us- try an audio version of Scripture to listen to.  (  has audio versions to click on - I think available in the NASB)

If you are like me- you may be at that point of a lot of drifting in and out or wakefulness and sleep...with a lot of fogginess...  Nonetheless- keep it playing.  This is no ordinary book!  These are the inspired words of God-

The LORD will direct them to your ears, mind, heart, soul- your being.  

Get to know Him more and more deeply-

and may His Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.
