Power for Living Part 29 - Everything You Need

She stood at the bank machine racking her brain for that new pin number. She had the bank statement in her hand… the funds were available, totally accessible with the simple knowledge of that pin number. She turned and walked away, frustrated and annoyed with herself for being in this position.

In our Christian walk much the same thing often happens. God has promised us all we need. But, at times, we feel powerless to access it. Why is this? Why does our Christianity often fail us at the withdrawal point?

Listen to God explain it in His Word, the Bible:

“God’s divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness 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 and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.” 2 Peter 1:3 & 4

God’s resource, His divine power, is available to us with everything we need for life and for godly living. It’s in the bank with our name on it!

It’s available through our knowledge of Him who called us. He has given us His personal pin number and called us to be His own! He calls us to get to know Him and understand His ways.

Through His goodness He has given us promises; great and precious promises to

  • do more than we could imagine (Part 21)
  • be our strength in weakness (Part 19)
  • teach us wisdom (Part 10)
  • and so much more!

Through these promises we may participate in His divine nature and live a changed life!

That’s what walking in the Spirit is all about. That is what being filled with the Holy Spirit means in the day to day journey. Access to Divine Power so that we have what we need to live where we walk… each day.

Learn to know Him better. Ask the Holy Spirit to continue to teach you His ways in the daily steps. Don’t wait for tomorrow to know God better and do something “big” for Him. Let His Divine Power fill you today and give you everything you need for life and godliness today!. Participate in His Divine Nature as you seek to walk by the power of the Holy Spirit. His power will amaze you and you will have the withdrawal of resources when you need it!
