Uncover the hidden truth that changes everything! No more striving, no more frenzy – God has already equipped you with everything you need for a godly life. Let this truth sink in and embrace a life filled with gratitude and love.
No more striving, no more frenzy
“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” (2 Peter 1:3 NLT).
I don’t know where that verse has been. Well, actually, it’s always been in 2 Peter, but what I mean is, how could I have missed it? All these years I’ve sweat, worried, and worked my way into a frenzy trying to “do” more and “be” more. But I needn’t have. I’m free to embrace a life free from striving. No more striving. No more frenzy.
God’s marvelous provision
Do you see what it says? God has already given us everything we need for living a godly life.
God’s provision is complete.
We already have everything we need.
We received it as soon as we came to know Christ. We aren’t waiting for a new outpouring. The cross is our divine supply center.
Does that fill you with hope? It does for me. It means we don’t have to strive for anything. His provision is complete. He has already given us everything we need, without us doing one thing more. He loves us that much.
Living in abundance: a revelation of love
Don’t get me wrong. He wants us to praise Him, worship Him, love Him and share His love with others. He wants the very best for us. Even if we never did one of those things ever again, He has already given us everything. Let go of the need to earn God’s love.
Doesn’t His gift of amazing love make you want to give back?
Not because you have to in order to receive, but because you love Him and are thankful for all He has already done and already given.
When was the last time you had a revelation about God’s amazing love for you and His faithfulness to you? I’d love to hear about it.
