Title: ACCESS POINTS TO PARTAKING IN THE EXPERIENCE OF THE DIVINE NATURE
Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust2 Peter 1:4
God is Divine. All of Him is supernatural, powerful, glorious and awesome. There is no limitation to His experience. If you have a taste of this glory, you don’t want to have anything else.
Today, I’m not talking about dominions and authority for the believer in Christ. Rather, I’m talking about how the child of God can continue to have access to the nature into which we have been born.
Many times, experiences of daily life are contrary to our status as children of God. We hear we are one thing in the Church and we bear witness to another thing once we step out. The issue here is not that God abandons us. No. He said He’d never leave you nor forsake you (Josh. 1:5, Heb. 13:5). The issue also may not be that it’s because you sinned. It might just be that you haven’t learned how to connect and enter into participation with the Divine life of God.
God has provided links that connect ordinary men to extraordinary lives. These elements, when engaged has the ability to shoot a man out of the normal into the Divine. What are these links to entering the Divine Nature? They are called His promises.
Everything God ever released into our lives/realm was first a promise before it became a reality: Salvation, Jesus, Pentecost and the Holy Spirit, etc. Many times, we look at the results when we should be appreciating the promise. But, it is the promise that precedes the results.
Because God doesn’t fail and always means what He says, we must learn to put great appreciation and value upon His promises – Isa. 55:11. In fact, we should always be seeking them. The secret about God’s promises is that they are the revelation of the possibilities available for us in the Divine Nature. Another value of God’s promises is that they are platforms for our demands. This means that, you can’t claim it if God doesn’t/didn’t promise it. But if He promises it, then you have a free ground to make demands. And God honors His promises. Apostle James says we don’t get these things because we don’t ask. It is as simple as that. You’ve got to ask according to the basis of God’s promises. – James 4:2-3, 1John 5:13-14
Can you believe this! God promises are you’re his written checks for us. You’ve got to go claim them. By claiming them today, you’re making yourself a partaker of God’s Divine Nature, tasting Heaven even while on Earth.
FINDING THE PROMISES
The Bible is filled with these from cover to cover. It is the written down record of all of God’s promises and His assurance. Don’t treat God’s word like a novel or another book. Rather, see it as both His Book of instructions as well as His Book of promises to you. By being informed of His promises, you’re well organized to demand because you can prove it from His word. And He always stands by His Word.
This is what we were born into. Let’s engage this life today by believing God and claiming what He says is ours today. You have the Divine Nature. You must partake in that thing that you’ve got inside of you today. As things go off, stand and call your experience upon the Divine promises of God. They’ll come. They always do.
Open the Word today and start digging for God’s promises. Don’t complain, pick promises. Don’t regret, search for promises and cling to them patiently. You’ll have them – Heb. 6:12
Go, search, find and claim your inheritance. Partake today!
