NOTE: REMEMBER, as previously stated, this series was written on October 1st and God has delivered me since then; I wrote it as it was given to me at that time!

*************************************************************************************************

The key to happiness, joy, peace, etc. is being in Christ and He being in us!! And since we are predestined by God, Peter speaks by God in 1 Peter 1:13-17 and tell us what we should do:

“13 So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed.

14 [Live] as children of obedience [to God]; do not conform yourselves to the evil desires [that governed you] in your former ignorance [when you did not know the requirements of the Gospel].

15 But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living.

16 For it is written, You shall be holy, for I am holy.

17 And if you call upon Him as [your] Father Who judges each one impartially according to what he does, [then] you should conduct yourselves with true reverence throughout the time of your temporary residence [on the earth, whether long or short]” (biblegateway.com – Amplified Bible).

In Verses 18 & 19 of the same chapter, Peter said:

“18 You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold,

19 But [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot” (biblegateway.com – Amplified Bible).

It is time to throw back the Ismael and embrace Isaac! God has predestined you to be great in Him! God is telling you today what He told Jeremiah in Jeremiah 29:11: “…I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for” (biblegateway.com – Message Bible).

Anything is possible if we only believe!! You must stop allowing the enemy to cause you to think you got where you are on your own – that is a lie from the pit of hell and has caused you to be stuck, yes stuck in pride. James 4:6 let us know that God gives us more grace – grace to overcome every obstacle – even pride. God gives us His grace to combat anything which tries to come against us that is why no weapon formed against us will prosper!! God's grace is sufficient for us!! Grace is a whole different teaching in itself which I have taught before; if you missed any of them, click here to read them. James goes on to say God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble (Proverbs 3:34).
