1 Kings 13:33-14:31; Jeremiah 24:1-25:38; Colossians 2:8-3:4

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that
pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him
that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto
us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye
might be partakers of the divine nature. 2 Peter 1:3-4

Peter lays out three blessings in these verses. We have the power
of God, promises from God and we are partakers with God. But
He has given us much more than just these things. Through His
divine power He has given us “all” things. This salvation that He
has provided through the death of the Lord Jesus is enough for
time and eternity, for “life and godliness” (v. 3). —N. C. Funston

Awesome power, boundless grace;
None can fathom all Your ways.
