3 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,
4 by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire. - 2 Peter 1:3-4
Partakers of the divine nature — All the other precious and very great promises lead to this one promise, one that I very rarely dwell on. There will be a time when I will not only be free from the corrupt nature of this world but I will partake in God’s divine nature. I will be with GOD without limitations. No boundaries or barriers. I will experience the divine beyond the brokenness. True peace, true freedom, true love, true humanity. All free from the opaque veil of self that stains my humanity.
It is difficult to imagine isn't it?
How do we get there? How do we rest in the promise of one day experiencing the wholeness we so desperately long for? By remembering all the precious and very great promises the He has already fulfilled for us. God said He would send a rescuer and He did! Not only did He send a rescuer, He himself came in the flesh. He became Human so that we might become Holy. Jesus then said He had to go away to prepare a place... place where we would one day become partakers of His divine nature and then He promised to send us a Helper. Once again He kept His promise and it was better than we could ever imagine. He sent The Holy Spirit - God himself to dwell in us and among us. To keep us hoping in the right things, to comfort us in the midst of our brokenness to empower us to be holy set apart and to embolden us to become witnesses to the world. We become the lights shinning in the darkness. All so that one day we might become partakers of His divine nature.
Be encouraged beloved He is a promise maker and a promise keeper!
