This morning as I prayed for my children, the same verse kept resonating in my mind. It brought such comfort to my soul and provided a rich promise. In 2 Peter 1:2-4, we read this:
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. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.2 Peter 1:2-4
I returned to the phrase “everything we need.” Joy filled my heart as I considered that God gives us everything we need. We have everything we need to live the life God asks us to live. This godly life depends upon divine power–which leads us to remember the Holy Spirit’s unlimited power available to us–and allows us to “participate in the divine nature.”
Can you imagine? Do you have chills? God is making us more like Him right now and enabling us to participate is His divine nature. This divine nature brings up so many wonderful ideas: we live a life of divine love, divine power, divine mercy, divine wisdom, divine peace, and divine joy. May we grow more and more into this divine nature.
