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 marvelous glory and excellence. 4 And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
5 In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. ~ 2Peter 1:3-7
There are NO excuses for living a life that is always weak and strong, no excuses for not walking and growing in your faith, no excuses for falling into traps. God has GIVEN us EVERYTHING we need to live a godly life!!
If this is true we have no excuse when we fall, the only reason we fall into stupid is because there is something broken in our relationship with the Father. We can be busy in church, we can be leaders, we can be preachers and still fall into the trap, just go through the motions with a broken relationship with your father. Remember the enemy is always trying to find ways to kill you and me!! There is a place where you have protection and it takes HARD work, it is know as the “secret place” or God’s resting place.
I have fallen into such deep crap in my life and I have NO excuse for it.. EVER!!! My fault for allowing my love to grow cold and not look for satisfaction from Him. HE GIVES US EVERYTHING WE NEED!! That my friend is a PROMISE!!! Live the good life… it is possible and it is SWEET
Now go out and have an EPIC day today
