2 Peter 1:2-4English Standard Version (ESV)

May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.  His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

O- Where does our power and strength come from?. Our God and Jesus Christ give us all things related to life and godliness.

How?. Through the knowledge of him who called us.

What has he given to us?. Very great and precious promises.

For what purpose?. To become caretakers of the divine nature

A – How is Jehovah Jireh seen here?. Do I utilize his power so I can live a godly life?. Do I utilize God’s power to escape my sinful nature?  God’s power IS present.  Do I use it??  If I am to be a caretaker of the divine nature (in me), how should I then live so that it is evident?  I know that I have use of His promises – from His Word.  Now, I have to use them to keep me holy, to keep me from sin, and to keep me following Him.  Knowing God, my Jehovah Jireh, my Provider, is willing and able to keep me from falling should also keep me from wandering from Him.

P – Father God, You are my Jehovah Jireh, my Provider.  Thank You for providing Your Word, so that I can cling to Your promises.  You have fulfilled them in the past, and You will continue to be faithful to fulfill them in the future.  Keep my feet from stumbling.  Keep my eyes on You.  Keep my mind pure.  Father I want to be holy, so that Your divine nature shines through me, and is evident to those around me.

The Lord will provide…. (a video on WHAT God provides) = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgU8re8b8aA
