God's interest in us

Some thoughts from devotion time:

There are Kingdom keys that are available to us that will get us into the realm of God's provision beyond our own ability. It seems to me that God is offering us "exceeding great and precious promises" to take us beyond the thinking that limits us to our own power. There is a connection available that launches us to that realm. Many times my decision to give up or quit something is based on perceived pain that might be in the future. If I realize that God is already in my future and If I relate to myself and others by what God says about our future, I will tend to hang in there and endure. God has great interest in our success. My prayer today is that I will not use a short-sighted view to diffuse my destiny.

"His divine 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. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins."
-2 Peter 1:3-9
