Devotions for February 15, 2017

2 PETER 1:3-8

3 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. 4 And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

5 In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.

8 The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.


It’s easy to for us to forget that the same God who made all of creation, and provides for them, is also the same God who provides for us.


Q: For what purpose has God given us everything we need?

Q: How can you demonstrate trust in God that He will continue to meet the needs you have for, “living a godly life”?

Q: Our needs extend far greater than our finances. What would look different in your life if you trusted God alone, rather than ourselves, for your emotional needs, spiritual needs, and physical needs?
