I don’t need anything else

“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.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 2 Peter 1-3, and John 1.

I have what I need to live for God.

If I am not living for God, it isn’t because I am not equipped to do so.

What has happened is that I am misusing or not using what God has given me.

If I am not paying attention to God, I am destined to flounder.  And it happens way too often!

How easy it is to reach for counterfeit gods and get absorbed in them.  I am not talking about living in a monastery.  My ultimate passion must be to do what God wants me to do.  I must find out what His Will is and pursue it with all my heart.

Wherever God now has me is the place where I can serve Him with all my heart.  I can’t believe that better circumstances will enable me to serve Him better.  I must serve him in the muck and mire as well as I serve Him under a church spire.

Who owns my heart?  Whose lead do I follow?  If God is the answer, then I must live as a fully equipped, Godly person knowing that I have the capacity to do what He wants.

“Lord, forgive me for trying to serve You without being fully committed to You.  It won’t work that way.  Attached to You I have everything I need to please You.  Take every part of me over now.  I love You, Lord.”

I don’t lack anything if I want to serve Him.  Enough with the excuses.
