Everything we need

Re: Verse reading–2 Peter 1:1-12 (day six)
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness.”(v 3)  There go my excuses!  Feelings of inadequacy no longer welcome!  Not a “natural” confidence for me.  Learned.  Supernatural.  Spirit given.  Scripture based.  EVERYTHING we need has been given us in the person of Jesus Christ.  “My grace is SUFFICIENT for you.” (2 Corinthians 12)  “ALL THINGS are possible for him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)  In followers of the Resurrected One, lack of confidence is the exception.  Anxiety is the stranger.  “If God is FOR US, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31)  “I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me.”  (Philippians 4:13)  Got any giants that need killing?  Allowed any fears to rule your decisions and restrict your witness?  When Christ died for sin and rose to victorious life, God declared that no hill is too steep, no assignment impossible for those who share His life.  Great news!  We have everything we need!
