“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.” -2 Peter 1:3,4
As I let God prepare my heart for the day, this is the scripture he offered me this morning. Although I had kept reading on in the chapter, I kept going back to these two verses and just couldn’t pass them. His divine power has given us everything we need for life and He reminded ALL of us of that promise throughout the day.
The group was split into 3 teams. One group painted the inside of a family’s home, one went to the future site of an amazing ministry and began RESTORATIONS and the other went to set-up a tent at a church where one of the VBS’ was hosted. Every team experienced the exact same emotions. WE NEED MORE! We need more supplies, we need more time, we need more people etc….. The long and short of it is, we couldn’t just run out and get more. We would have to use what we had and get the job done. Let’s just say the jobs got done and we didn’t need more. Praise Him!
In the afternoon we again split into teams, one group went to another church and the other stayed at Eli House. We hosted San Luis Rio Colorado’s very first VBS!!! Not only was it their first VBS but there were two going on in the same town!! Praise His Holy Name!!! Throughout the afternoon we experienced much of the same emotions as in the morning. WE NEED MORE! However, we all learned very quickly we had just enough and so we were able to “participate in the divine nature.”
