I am reluctant to say that 1 Corinthians known as ‘The Love Letter’ is more beautiful than any other book of the Holy Bible, but surely it ranks as choice among them.
In this beautiful book in the very last verse of chapter thirteen, 13:13, one finds these words, “….now abide faith, hope, charity (love), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (love). Understand that these three are actually a part of God’s very own divine nature and personality and as such, because God is eternal, these traits, attributes and characteristics are also eternal.
As I , during my study and prayer time, was asking the Lord to enlighten me to these words of scripture I seem to have my spirit awaken and grasp hold of a new concept I had never had before. Now you may already have discovered this for yourself but to me it was a new revelation. It is so very powerful that if you who have never understood this before can take hold of this revelation it can and will change forever the power of your prayers.
The scripture constantly encourages us to have faith and to believe; Mark 11:22-24; therefore when we ask for faith and the ability to believe we are actually asking for a portion of Gods very own divine nature, power, ability and attributes. Can you see that if we are able to harness that unlimited power we are invincible and will have the same power God has ? God has made His very own power available to each of us who ask for it and believe on Him.
That is why God can guarantee that if we believe we will have the results we pray for. God would never tell us to do something that He had not already given us the power and ability to do. It’s all about trust and love. We have been given the ‘keys of heaven’ able to unlock every door and overcome every obstacle life that the enemy puts in our path. God is no respecter of persons, meaning He does not treat any one person or offer any one person any advantage He does not offer to all. In His infinite wisdom He had to have a way to give to those who are His and not to those who are not His. How does He do this? He makes it mandatory that in order to receive you must believe that He is who He says He is and that if you believe that what you ask of Him in the name of His son Jesus, you will have what you desire. If you do not believe you will not get what you desire or ask for. God is separating the wheat from the tares.
When we ask of the Eternal anything in prayer believing that what we ask for in Jesus’ name, and believing without doubt, then we shall have what we ask for. When we understand that, we become partakers of His divine nature and attributes and we become more than conquerors through Christ Jesus. Until we receive our own immortal body and take on our own divine nature God makes His attributes available to us.
God’s power, God’s love, God’s faith, God’s hope are all available to us. He tells us to ask and it shall be given to us. God is the guarantor of His Word and is bound by His own Word to grant us our petitions. Because He can not fail we can not fail.
We are invincible. Glory to God.
And that…Is As I See It.
