Words from the Heart for Saturday July 25th, 2020
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 (NIV)
His Divine Power
The North American power grid is a network of networks that delivers electricity from where it is generated to the homes, businesses, and communities that use it. The power grid network includes: the generating station network of extra-high voltage lines that connect to the transmission network; the bulk power transmission network of high-voltage transmission lines that connect to distribution substations, and the distribution network low-voltage lines that connect to customers. This immense North American network of power lines, generation facilities, and related communications systems is often referred to as “the world’s largest machine.”
God spoke and the world was created. At the end of the age, God will speak and Satan will be sent to his eternal reward in the pit of hell. A God who can speak everything in our world into being, and who can defeat the enemy of our souls with one word, certainly has the power to defeat the enemies we are facing and empower us to walk in spiritual victory. In 2 Peter 1:3 we read: “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.” His divine power – ponder that little phrase for a while. The power of Creation, the power that inspired the Bible, the power that brought Jesus from the grave, the power that transformed your life and mine, is available for us today. We are called to live a godly life. We can’t do it on our own. The good news is that we don’t have to. His divine power is available to all who will reach out to our Creator God in faith. Have you done so today?
These have been words from the heart.
