Aside all the physical reality we see, the world is a spiritual place and we need spiritual power to survive and make impact. In our reading for today, we have been assured that His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by His own glory and goodness.
Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them we may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. The assurance we have is that God’s provision meets every need of ours. This actually includes our need for spiritual power. The Acts 1:8 account assures us that when the Holy Spirit comes upon us, we shall receive power.
Today many young people are searching for power in many wrong places like the cults, yoga, transcendent meditation, astral projections among others. However, no matter how frantically they search for it, they don’t find authentic power that is lasting.
God’s provision however gives us everything we need we need for life and godliness. What we need to do is respond to this divine power. This comes through our knowledge of Jesus Christ! Then we must participate in the divine nature! If our Lord is this powerful then we become powerful too when we participate in His divine nature!
True spiritual power is found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Locate this power in Him and grow it!
