Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion to God has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to Him through a glorious manifestation of goodness. 2 Peter 1:3 TPT
This word ‘deposit’ is defined as anything laid away or entrusted to another for safekeeping: money placed in a bank account or an instance of placing money in a bank account. (dictionary.com)
When I think that God, the creator of the universe, deposited everything in me that I would ever need in this life, I’m simply blown away! Track with me for a moment. Not only did He send His son to die so that I could live in forgiveness, but He sent His Holy Spirit to accompany me on my journey so that I would have wisdom, understanding and power to accomplish what He sent me to do.
But that’s not all! His deposit in me wasn’t for me to just sit on it and keep it safe, He actually expects me to be fruitful with it, to work it, so that I can give Him the fruit of the seeds I’ve planted. He invested in me so that I would invest in others. He healed me so that I can heal others. He gave me joy so that I can spread that joy. He gave me peace so that I can walk in peace. He trusted me with this so I will trust Him in me.
This relationship we have with God is a two way relationship. It’s an exchange of questions, answers, learning and living. It’s getting to know Him in such a way that when He asks us to do something, anything, we do it with complete trust in His ability to work through us. Learning to hear His voice is developed based on our understanding of who He is.
If you’re interested in tapping into this deposit He’s placed in you, you must be willing to spend time in His presence and allow Him to make His plans known to you. Once you start on this journey of faith, your life will never be the same.
Enjoy the journey and the benefits!
Until Next Week,
