“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature.” – 1 Peter 1:4
We might think of them as tools to help fix a problem in our thinking.
We might think of them as incentives in times of discouragement when we grow weary in the fight in our minds.
We might think of them as messengers when we are confused as a double-mindedness is neigh.
We might think of them as a life preserver when we are overwhelmed with the fight.
We might think of them as a balm for the heart when we feel despaired of life.
We might think of them as a drink of cool water when we are spiritually dry.
We might think of them as a staff of support along our weary way.
We might think of them as a phone call to a parent.
We might think of them a light of hope when we are in a dark place at night.
We might think of them as a medicine when spiritually sick.
We might think of them as gifts from our loving Father above who desires that we use them in our every time of need. He really only asks that we believe – that we trust and that we believe in Him and in Jesus and that we try to do our best even after the times of repeated daily failures. That if we are still trusting in the blood and holding the head, we might partake with the deepest gratitude of the simple glorious feast saying in our heart of hearts glory to the lamb that was slain, worthy to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory.
