Starring at the back of the airplane seat in front of me, I read the words, “Southwest 737 Safety Information.” A few inches below was another notice: “Literature Only.” The airline was clear. I was not to put my phone or anything else in the pocket that held their literature. They also wanted me to know and follow their safety information. I and others complied as you might expect. Everyone buckled their seat belt and put their bag under the seat or in the overhead bin. I couldn’t help but wonder why we comply with an airline company but often don’t comply with our Heavenly Father’s safety instructions. If you’ve had a few life crashes lately, study 2 Peter to Learn How to Live by Christ’s Divine Nature.

Why It’s Important to Open Our Hands and Hearts

10/24/2020

Do you ever feel anxious or uptight? Does mad or angry better describe you? Or sad and melancholy? What about “done with life”? Or, depleted? Whatever our condition, whatever our need, Philippians 4:19 tells us “God will SUPPLY all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Short on perseverance? Feel like you’re going to blow a fuse? Don’t know how you will ever smile again? Although we may have those feelings at times, it’s not our reality if we’re a Christian. God offers and will SUPPLY all our needs according to HIS RICHES in GLORY in CHRIST JESUS.  Rather than hold tightly to anger or discouragement, open your hands and hearts to God. Ask Him to pour His SUPPLY of glorious riches in Christ Jesus…into you.

Learn how to do that in my daily devotional study, 2 Peter, “How to Live by the Divine Nature.”   For yourself. For your zoom study.

Heavenly Father, Thank You for supplying all we need according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus!

Do you ever feel empty or drained? What about anxious or uptight? Does mad or angry better describe you? Or sad and melancholy? Whatever our condition, whatever our need, Philippians 4:19 tells us “God will SUPPLY all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Short on perseverance? Feel like you’re going to blow a fuse? Don’t know how you will ever smile again? Although we may have those feelings at times, we’re not hopeless. God offers to and can SUPPLY all our needs according to HIS RICHES in GLORY in CHRIST JESUS. Rather than hold tightly to anger or discouragement, we can open our hands and hearts to God who will pour into them His SUPPLY of glorious riches in Christ Jesus.

Learn more about how to do that by pre-ordering my Bible study on 2 Peter, “How to Live by the Divine Nature.”   For individual or group study.

Heavenly Father, Thank You for supplying all we need according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus!
