Day 8 From the Kitchen Table
2 Peter 1:3-4
His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
Think about what this means. We woke up this morning with God’s power to live from and God’s promises to live for and it comes through a precise knowledge, understanding, revelation of who we’re living with, God himself. God made us for this day and His divine power (His divine presence, not just some impersonal power) lives within those of us who believe in Him. He has plans for “glory” today, where we will live in His beauty and excellence with a splendid reputation. God is building something beautiful from something broken through those who believe. Don’t give up or give in. Think about what this means, “His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness.” Think about living with Him, not just for Him, and in the meantime He will help us escape the corruption that’s killing so many. God is good.
