S = Scripture:    2 Peter 1:3-4 [GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)]

3God’s divine power has given us everything we need for life and for godliness. This power was given to us through knowledge of the one who called us by his own glory and integrity. 4Through his glory and integrity he has given us his promises that are of the highest value. Through these promises you will share in the divine nature because you have escaped the corruption that sinful desires cause in the world.

 

E = Explanation

No matter what people want or think they need etc. God has provided for each of us everything that each one of us as individuals need.  The most important things He has given is is Himself and the salvation he has given us.  Nothing is more importnat than these things and we shold remember that.   He gave us these things, not because we earned them, but simply because of who He is and how He is.   Because of all of this we have been blessed beyond measure and be free of the evilo that is  a natural part of this world as it is and a natural part of every person born into this world.

  

A = Application

I need to take a moment every time I am struggling with thoughts of what I don’t have or what I think I need and literally thank God for the things I do have most importantly relationship with Him and His caring love.
