(Accept What He's Already Given You)

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


TO THE BIBLE: “…His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”

(2 Peter 1:3 KJV)



This is one of those “shouting verses” in the Bible; you couldn’t read this and not be exuberant with praise to God. Think about it: there’s nothing He hasn’t made available to you in Christ Jesus.

Everything you need to live triumphantly—in dominion, excellence, and righteousness—has already been given to you in Christ Jesus. The question then is, have you accepted what He has given you?

It’s one thing for God to give you all things, but it’s another thing for you to accept what He’s already given you and act accordingly. Having heard that His divine power has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness, you ought to talk and live as one who knows he’s got all things.

God didn’t make a promise to give you all things; He’s already given you all things. So talk like you own the world, because you do!

1 Corinthians 3:21 says, “…all things are yours”; therefore, have that consciousness and refuse to let anyone or circumstances make you think, talk or act otherwise. Study the Word to know all that God has given you.

For example, 1 John 5:11-12 tells us, “…This is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” This means God has given us His type of life: the victorious life that’s not subject to Satan, disease, sickness, failure or defeat!

Philemon 1:6 teaches that the communication of your faith becomes effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing, which is in you in Christ Jesus. Therefore, be bold to affirm, proclaim and rejoice about all that God has given to you in Christ Jesus: sing, dance, and shout about it!

Go Deeper: Hebrews 11:6; 1 Corinthians 3:21-23; Ephesians 1:3

Speak: "I’m who God says I am, and I have what He says I have. I’m an heir of the sovereign King, and I’m reigning as a king in life. Eternal life is my present-hour possession! Yes! The victorious life is mine; I live above sickness, disease, poverty, failure, and death, in Jesus’ Name. Amen."
