“His Divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” 2 Peter 1:3
If you’re like me I’m so often asking for more, for help, for resources, for whatever. This, I believe is a good thing. It shows a desire for growth, expansion, progress. I often though, very often, feel like I just don’t have enough, I don’t have what I need, if only is my cry. But right here, right now reading this verse I have to realise,I’ve got it, I’ve got everything I need.
Did you realise that as you read the verse? You’ve got it, you’ve got everything you need!
‘His Divine power,’ God has put at our disposal the stuff we need. the faith, hope, love, courage, strength, anointing, wisdom, ability. It’s all there, provided by God. You’re not a whimp, coward, loser, you are a champion with all the resources of heaven on your side! He has done it, it was his divine power that gave it to us.
“Through the knowledge of him.”
You might be saying, “OK I read the verse, I hear what you’re saying but where is it? You say I’ve got this stuff, all I need to live a godly life, but I can’t see it, I’m frustrated and frazzled, where the heck is my stuff?” It’s right there. You have it. It’s in the knowledge of him, it’s in Jesus.
What I need more of when I’m feeling short, shaken, bemused and sinking is more of him! It’s not more stuff, he can give that, get that to me easy, what I need is more of him, more of Jesus! That’s where the everything is, located in him!
Prayer: “Lord Jesus, I am so grateful that you have provided everything I need and it is all in you. I chase stuff and means so much, but right now I’m chasing you, more of you Lord.”
