“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.” 2 Peter 1:3
God’s Word, His precepts and statutes are our counselors. “Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.” (Psalm 119:24) Drinking in His Word every day is essential in our lives and vital in our marriages. God has given us His Holy Spirit as our Counselor to teach us and remind us of His Word. “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14:26
The key verse above from 2 Peter 1:3 assures us that His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge or Him who called us by His own glory and goodness. Through His Word and His Spirit, He has fully equipped us to live a life of godliness. “….give me only my daily bread.” (Proverbs 30:8) As we daily yield our hearts to His will and His word, His divine power gives us everything we need for life and godliness….including in our marriage. Everything we need. I find that amazing.
