2 Peter 1:2 KJV Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
Grace is the unmerited favor or beneficence of God according to Wordweb dictionary. When you give a child, precisely an underage a gift of G-Wagon without a reason or condition attached, it is Grace. Some have heard a voice or dreamt that they should give a gift to a total stranger. And such a gift had given the stranger a great turnaround. Grace is at work in the life of such a person who had received the gift. It could be a favor in paying your mortgage, hospital bills, school fees, and many more. You may call it a favor, but there is no favor without Grace working it out.
You were a drug addict. There were times you escaped death. At one time you almost got caught, and even when they caught you, the chief inmate liked you and you got favored. You were a hooker and whenever a customer with an infectious terminal disease wants to patronise you. Something comes up and wastes your time and you get angry for not making more money on that day. You always had a fight in your dream and someone will lock you up in a room, but it surprised you how you got out. Many times you fell from heights but saw yourself flying. You were in a deep sea and got out by a miracle. All these things are the effect of Grace.
Those who have greater knowledge of God have greater Grace. I’m not talking about those who have faced all these challenges without knowing God. They have been riding on the Grace of others. But those who faced all these and many more and never lose hope. Those who faced challenges with the words of the three Hebrew boys, “if our God save us, fine and if not, we will still serve Him” Dan. 3:17-18 paraphrased
Daniel 11:32b KJV but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. There is an increase in Grace because of an increase in the knowledge of God that you’ve had. That’s why you pray and seem to have no result and someone else (not necessarily a minister of God) pray for you with an instant result.
We gain the knowledge of God through intimate fellowship with the Trinity.
Your Grace will be multiplex as you increase in your knowledge of God.
Let us pray: Father, increase my hunger for you.
