“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:3-4 KJV https://www.bible.com/1/2pe.1.3-4.kjv
“For everyone that is born of God overcomes the world......” (1 Jn 5:4).... Often we go through life feeling conquered rather than like a conqueror. Like a ship that has gone through a significant storm, beaten up and battered with significant wear and tear as an evidence of the potency of the storm. In times like that, we wonder if we have what it takes to truly overcome and live peaceably.. We are however being reminded that the power of God has given us all things that helps us to live and be godly while at it.... He has given us the promises in the word.. given us a glimpse of what is possible and the destination; he has given us the manual for life... a great resource to consult for all dimensions of life issues....; we have the living translator and guide..... the HolySpirit to prompt us towards godly living and remind us of the promises and expectations. Lastly, He has a given us a will.... the power to choose to live right and out of the shackles that lure us through sin into a life of servitude to the slave master.... So when life comes with all it has to offer, we need to leverage all that we have been given to enable us come through the storms looking unscathed and in fact shining through the storm with a divine peace that passes all human understanding... We have been given the resources... Let’s use it... Victory is assured... Halleluyah!!!!
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for always being mindful of me and making provisions for all life’s dimensions. Help me Lord to use these resources and to continue to live victoriously 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
