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.
4 Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature…. 2 Peter 1
These two verses are blowing me away ( blowing me into heaven ) at present as there is so much rich gold truth here.
The key words for me are
Very great and precious promises
These verses should be read and meditated on each morning
I agree. Often we cry out to God for what He has already given us. The problem is, we don't activate it. We want to sit there and have God do it for us. There are things we are incapable of doing, of course and only God can do them. However, He has for example given us the ability to resist temptation but we must actually do.
Well said John!
