His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3
Depending upon where a person lives often determines how much he feels that he needs to really live life. In some locations, a person will need a new vehicle, a boat, a gated house or else they are not allowed to live there. Other locations have no direct requirements.
Advertisements abound everywhere in telling people what they need to really live life. People are constantly searching for more things that they need to make life better or easier for them.
Peter tells the people that God’s power has given them everything that they need to live the godly life He has called them to live.
Excuses are given every day why people are unable to live a very Godly lifestyle. Most often one will just say that he is human and cannot be like Jesus. Many will allow the pressures and cares of this world to keep them from being holy because God is holy.
God, in His infinite wisdom, power and love, has provided everything that a person needs to live a Godly life. Starting with the scriptures, there is a verse that will guide a person on how to live holy for every situation he may ever be in. After Jesus left the earth, He sent the Holy Spirit to guide and strengthen a person to live that Godly life.
The choice every believer must make for himself, is whether he will tap into the power that God has given him to live that holy and Godly life. There is nothing more that a person needs than what God has already given, it is just a matter of using what God has given.
You have choices every day as to how you will live your life. You may live as the world lives, in sin, or you may choose to live like Jesus, a Godly and holy life. As a believer, you must be willing to choose to live as God called you to live, like Jesus, a holy and Godly life.
Open God’s word and study it to know how God wants you to live. Then seek the Holy Spirit to strengthen and guide you to live that holy life.
All things are possible, since God will give you all that you need.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know how God wants you to live your life; that you will know the power of God in your life; that you will live a holy life as Jesus did; and that you will rely upon strength and guidance from the Holy Spirit.
