A reminder for today
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 marvellous glory and excellence. (2 Peter 1:3)
I slept like a log last night and off course I did not want to get up this morning. It was cold and the bed was so nice and warm. I had to force myself out of the bed. I am convinced those blankets tried to hold me back. I guess everyone has a morning where you just want to fall back into the bed and stay there. I think I have way too many mornings like that.
How can we live a godly life when we are going through so many challenges each day? How can we live a godly life when our life has not been so godly so far? When you walked into His presence and you asked for forgiveness your past became history. When you gave your heart to Jesus and you accepted Him as your saviour, your sins were wiped away. When you accepted Jesus and realised that you cannot do this on your own, your life became godly.
By His amazing and divine power, He made you holy so that you can live a godly life. It is by our faith in Jesus and our love for Him that we are granted the abilities to live a godly life. It is by the realisation that we need Jesus and we can’t do without Him that our weaknesses are turned into strength. We are called to God by grace and given a new purpose by love. We are not broken anymore and nor are we lost. We have been given the most awesome gift and with this we have turned into vessels of honour that carries His words in our hearts so that our very deeds become holy.
It is in our manor and in our way of life that we show Him. It is in our acceptance that He is God and in our faith that He took away all our sins so that we can be the warriors He wants us to be. It is in our trust and faith that we walk fearlessly and courageously on our journey. Jesus is our all and with Him we are stronger than we have ever been. We see life differently and we live life differently. We do not accept the lies of the enemy and we do not fear his attacks. We are the voice of Jesus and our lights shine brightly for Him.
Lord, we know you have given us all we need to live godly lives. Let us become the warriors you need us to be so that we can resist and defeat the enemy and show you to those who have forgotten you. Let our lives testify of your grace and glory so that other will seek it to. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
