Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Becoming Like Christ – Day 103 – 2 Peter 1:3-4 – His Divine Power – Growing As Disciples

His 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 (NIV)  

Power And Promises

I want to live a godly life. I want to live a life that is good and right and pleasing to you. On my own, under my own power and strength, I know that I cannot live such a life. No one is asking you to live a godly life under your own power. You will never hear such a request from me. You are right, that would be an impossible task. Do you know how I will make you able to live a life that is good and right and pleasing to me? Yes, I think I do. Let me hear your thoughts. Say out loud what is on you heart and in your mind. Your power and promises will help me to live a life that is good and right and pleasing to you. Your power and promises will help me to escape the corruption that is in the world. Yes, they will.

You have more to say. Yes, I do. You have called me to come to you. You have turned my life around. You helped me to come to know and love and follow and serve you. You have given me a burning desire to live my life with and for you. You are my Savior. You are my Lord. You have forgiven my sins. You have cleansed my unrighteousness. You have been using your power and your promises to change everything about me. How so? Your power and promises have changed the thoughts of my mind, words of my mouth and the deeds of my life. Your power and promises have formed the hopes and dreams and goals of my life. You have used your word to change my heart, transform my mind and guide my life. I now love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. This is not to my credit. This is not something I have accomplished. You have done this work in me. You are continuing this work in me. Yes, I have. Yes, I am. You have helped me to have a passionate desire to do what is pleasing to you. For that, I am very thankful. For that, I give you all the praise and honor and glory. That is very good. 

Lord, thank you for calling me to come to you. Thank you for helping me to come to know and love and follow and serve you. Thank you that your mighty power and great promises will give me all I need to live a godly life that is good, right and pleasing to you. Amen
