2 Peter 1:1-11

A summer program at the college I attended prepared blind students for life on a college campus. With the use of sighted student guides, the blind students learned the layout of the dorm and the various routes to classes, meals, and other activities. If they happened to stumble into an unexpected trash can or light pole, they would laugh at each other and say, “What’s the matter, are you blind?”

Peter reminds us that God’s “diving 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). Everything we need! No reason to stumble if we keep close to our guide and hold on to His promises.

Moses learned that when God called him to lead the Israelites, He also gave him everything he would need to complete the task, just as God has given us everything we need to accomplish the task to which He has called us. He doesn’t do the job halfway. He doesn’t leave us to stumble in the dark. He provides everything we need, as we draw close to Him and depend on His provision.
