Today’s Encouragement is 2 Peter 1:2-3 “May God give you more and more grace and peace as you grow in your knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.”
Given us everything we need –
Imagine having everything you need. Not only physical needs but emotional and spiritual needs, all satisfied. It’s rather surprising to learn… we already do! We have everything that ‘we need for living a godly life‘, and please explain to me… what else really matters?
We may not ‘feel’ like we have everything, at least not Yet!
But our feelings aren’t our true reality. Being unaware of our blessings doesn’t make us impoverished. But rejection of the blessings God has provided us, refusing to search for His Hand at work in our lives… this makes us destitute.
Lord God, open our eyes and hearts to the amazing blessings You have given to us, to Your loved children.
