Life is beautiful. Oh yes! Life as God made it, is beautiful. If there’s anything in your life or that you see around you that isn’t beautiful, then that thing is not in its right order, the way God intended it. Poverty is not beautiful, insecurity, sickness is not beautiful, failure is not beautiful, dirty and depressing habits are not beautiful. So what? I tell you these were never a part of God’s will for you and there isn’t any reason why you should let them remain in your life if you find any of those. All that God intended for you was a heaven on earth as depicted in the perfect start He gave us at Eden. And I have good news for you. Despite that we let the devil steal that perfect start, God has made available to anyone, I mean anyone who cares to believe and accept it, a route into a more perfect life on earth.
You know Jesus said, “the reason men shall be judged is that they were shown the light, and yet they chose to grope in darkness” (John 3:19). The life that God gives is so sweet that to many, it seems too good to be true. Even believers find it difficult releasing themselves to it. But mehn! I’d rather jump into that light than suffer the pain of darkness.
2Peter 1:3 says “according as His divine power hath given to us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue”. Point 1 – The ascension into glory and virtue is a call! You can choose to answer or ignore! He hath called us to glory and virtue…
Point 2: Now, let’s read that verse again, “According as His divine power has given us…” Hey! Wait a minute. Look closely, the scripture didn’t say “…will give us”. He says, “…has given us all things”. How many things? all things… that pertain unto life and godliness. Do you remember when Jesus said, “…I have come to give life and to give it in abundance”? I tell you, Jesus Christ has already given all things that pertains to a beautiful life but many of us struggle to receive all things. Some of us receive just a part of it, usually salvation from sins (righteousness). Some others receive a few parts, righteousness and divine health. But you know, only so few believe and stretch out to receive as much as they ever want for life. It includes a prosperous and happy life. David said, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want”. (Psalm 23:1)
Point 3: Here is the deal, He has given us all things that pertains to life and godliness. All you need for a beautiful life is already given, and I want to teach you how to receive them. All you need for godliness is already given and I want to teach you how to receive them! But I bet you haven’t yet understood the godliness part of it. Let me get you a little bit into the hint of what godliness means. Do you realize in Eden man was created a “god”? God breathed Himself into the otherwise lifeless container (Adam’s body) which He formed from the ground). He breathed into Adam His “Godship” or “Godliness” – that is “His Godly personality” – into man. And man became a living soul – a living god! Notice the small “g” on man’s “godship” (just permit my grammar for sake of understanding). Aha! little wonder the next thing was man’s coronation into the seat of authority to be god of this world. He was crowned with power to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, and have dominion over the air, the land and the sea. That is godliness! The act of being the god of the planet! Hallelujah! It’s what Jesus meant when He said, having resurrected from his conquest of hell, “All power both in heaven and on earth is given unto me”.
In godliness is righteousness, power, authority, success, wisdom, anointing, riches, honour, glory, love, strength, blessing (opposite of curse). It is the ability to reign on earth with every power and as much love as God does in Heaven. This is what Christ has restored back to you. Your “godship” even here on earth! How can you be god and you grope in pain! No! We got to take our place man!
How to Take Your Place into The World of Eden?
The Word: 2Peter 1:3 “…through the knowledge of Him that has called us…” It is the knowledge and revelation of God in our lives, which comes through His Word that brings us into that beautiful life we’ve been talking about on earth. If you are a believer saved from sin, how did you get saved? The word! It was preached! or you read it! If you will receive all other things that pertain to life and godliness it will still come via the Word! It is with the Word that we can pray effectively. Even the bible calls the Word the Sword of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit in you works in proportion to your Word level inside of you. Psalms 82:4 – 7 makes it clear. We are gods, but ignorance makes gods die as men and fall as one of the princes.
What does the Word do? It renews your minds! All what I have done so far in this write up is renewing your mind in God’s Word. It is the first stage. You have to keep thinking this way for you to soon start experiencing a beautiful life. “As a man thinketh in his heart so he is” (Proverbs 23:7). And it is the major tool we will keep employing till Jesus comes. Mind renewal is very very key! When God gave man a perfect start, He always came in the cool of the evening to relate and rub minds with man! That was a strategy to keep their minds updated and renewed! The first thing sin did was to make Adam run away from that fellowship, so that renewal died! Even if Adam was already spiritually dead and separated from fellowship with God, it tool him 9.. years to die physically because his mind didn’t fathom how to die. He was designed to have lived forever and not even drop his body, so his body still lived on for so long before it died. If we must live above fear of lack, want, insecurity, sickness, pain, failures, depression, degenerative habits, we must have a very frequent, at least daily renewal of our minds in God’s Word.
This is the greatest Mind controller – God’s Word! Remember in our mind series, we learnt that our minds get a lot of its programming from its daily exposure to our environment. And these environmental factors to which we subject our minds become our “Mind Controllers”! And since the state of our mind determines our results in life, this is why we must expose our minds to God’s Word as frequently as possible.
His Word opens our mind up to a whole new world of opportunities and to a whole new world of the Supernatural. It is when our mind gets renewed that our lives can be transformed. (Romans 12:2). There is no other way God knows to transform us into gods on earth. There is no other way to live in a World of Eden than by our mind renewal in God’s Word!
Please dear reader, live in the light of this new understanding. You are a god and your life is beautiful. In God’s Word you get empowered to live a beautiful life. He will show us the path to that beautiful life, for in His presence is fullness of joy and at His right hand pleasures forevermore (Psalms 16:11). It’s so real. It takes this new found revelation to experience a truly beautiful life. But this new revelation will only stay with you when you daily expose yourself to an environment of such Worded materials like this. Everyday take out time to get your mind renewed on God’s Word with expectations to get directions on any issue of concern in your life. Be practical with God and see the difference it will make. Having done that, rise up and see yourself as a god before you step out to work or to school or even at home. If you are jobless, God will inspire you to a new world of possibilities.
