...as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue...
2 Peter 1:3 NKJV
So often, I find this verse in my journal. How many times has Satan got to beat me down with the lie that I'm not good enough, visiting the well of worthlessness, shame, guilt? When the priests came to the brazen laver of the tabernacle, their priestly garments were white in contrast with their faces that reflected through the water. They saw their impurities through this mirror (it was jot bronze but made by mirrors the women brought - Exodus 38:8)
It is in the true worship of glancing at God, His perfect sacrifice, with true humility... that we can yield by receiving His Love and atonement.
He has already given us All that we need! Life and Godliness are also 2 things and they are both 'covered'. This is the position of receiving, his goodness and mercy, that we don't deserve by His Glory, that we may shine like Him!
Take a moment to ask God to show you your true heart. If there are areas that stops you from receiving God's love, ask Him to heal you and receive it in faith! Declare that He has given you these and Thank Him for it.
Lord, Thank you that you have given me everything I need for my life and a life of godliness. Thank you that it is not in what I can do but in who you are - my righteousness, my grace. Help me live a life of true humility, worshipping you with reverence and awe.
