I was given a leadership task in school, looking critically at myself, I saw a lot of inconsistencies, weakness and in capabilities, but surprisingly, the faithful Lord granted enough grace, enough power which swallowed all my weaknesses and filled me with his strength. At the end of my tenure of office we had really worked and impacted the group as well as the entire school through no strength of ours but God Himself. Many asked how? but we knew it was the doing of the Lord! Hallelujah!
From our text today, through our knowledge of him, He has given us everything we need for a godly life by his divine power because we are his glory and goodness. This implies that, as a child of God, I don’t lack anything. There is a divine nature we ought to participate in, so we have received great and precious promises through which we can escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
Precious one, since you are a channel of blessing, God wants you to add to your faith some virtues, goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection and love. These virtues in addition to our faith in increasing measure, will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus.
God has given as all we need to be channels of blessings wherever we are, so unproductiveness and ineffectiveness is not part of our walk with Him. If we are seeing such things, then it means we have refused to walk in what God wants us to be. Be a channel of blessing!
You are that channel of blessing.
