To the Strangers Scattered Throughout. . .

I was reading from I Peter 1:1 “Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout. . . . “. This verse spoke to me as if God said. . . . I want you to write to the “strangers” scattered throughout!! I write from my heart to those I may never meet, to those that have hearts that stand in need of God’s healing grace  . . . . God’s healing peace, the only force on Earth that can bring true healing to the broken heart. As I continued to read from I Peter 1, I was overcome by the power of that grace and peace . . . In verse 2 Peter says. . . Grace unto you and peace be multiplied. That means continual and in abundance . . . . . But it is through the truth of the scriptures that follow we are able to see where that Grace and peace comes from, not within ourselves but through the work that God has established in His mercy toward us.

“(3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.”  . . .  His abundant mercy. . . . unto a lively hope . . . all because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. . .  that is where the true power of our peace comes from!!! But He didn’t stop there . . .  Verse 4 “To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.” Not only does He give us grace, peace, mercy and hope in this life, but He promises us an inheritance that no one can take from us, reserved in heaven with our name on it !!!!!! My name is on “my mansion” in Heaven which God is preparing for “me”. . . . Let’s think on that for a bit. . . .

To the strangers scattered throughout. . . .  Grace and peace be multiplied !!!!!!

    I have long depended on God’s grace & mercy. Hopefully not taking it for granted it’s just that In order to function as a sane person in a crazy world I must have it. Then His peace is the icing on my cake that I delight in.
