2 Peter 1:3 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.
This extremely powerful verse has a promise AND a call to action. In this verse, the tense that is being used is extremely important. “His divine power HAS been given.” This means that we have been filled with the Holy Spirit and have the power to act on His behalf to bring lost souls back to Him. God then acts through us and sends us where we are needed. This verse also confirms that we have all the tools we need to work on behalf of Him. How often do you feel conflicted about having tough conversations with people about religion? Have Faith! God has given you all the tools that you will need. Trust in Him. He will never leave you nor forsake you. This passage is all about confirmation. Live in that confirmation of Him who has claimed you and you will never fail.
Heavenly father we come before you with hearts filled with love. You have blessed us and continue to bless us. We give thanks for life, the freedom to enjoy it all and all other blessings. We thank you for Jesus and the sacrifice that He made for us to be closer to You. I ask that you continue to lead me, lead me to a place that will increase the followers of your name. May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
