What do you want for yourself, for your life? What does God want for yourself, for your life? I am discovering that what God wants for me and my life is much better than what I want for myself and my life. As I look back on my life, I can see where I actually kept getting in the way of what is best.
Look at this amazing passage of Scripture, it says it so beautifully: “2Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3According 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: 4Whereby 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 1:2-4
God wants grace and peace to be multiplied into and through our lives. It is multiplied as we step out of our own knowledge and into our knowledge of Him and His Son, our Savior. This allows us to yield to His Spirit and experience His purpose and plan.
His divine power has given us everything we need to live the life of Godliness that He has called us to and created us for, a life of virtue and glory. When I depend on my power, I rob myself of the opportunity to participate in the divine.
He has given us His exceeding great and precious promises, so that we might be partakers of the divine nature and escape the corruption that comes from the lust of the world. We have a choice to make and our choice determines where and how we will live. Notice, God does not just give us promises, He gives us His exceeding great and precious promises.
God has and wants what is best for us and our lives, lets step out of our selfishness and into His promises – we will be glad we did!
