It Is Already Inside of You
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. --- 2 Peter 1:3

Amazing, isn't it?  Everything we need to live a godly life is already within us. Is that like saying we already know everything? Nope. Is that like saying we must only wait until we develop to a point when all of this knowledge will one day rush to the forefront of our brains, and we'll be all wise and all-knowing thereafter? Nada...you can forget that, too. What it does mean is that every bit of who we are and the universal potential we possess is secured within our spirit. God is the Keeper of it all, and we have the amazing adventure of discovering what we're all about through our close relationship Him and in our relating with each other. How amazing is this? It is so amazing that we have to keep watch so we do not let jealousy, envy, and strife cause us to abort our adventurous journey, 'for where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and evil practice' (James 3:16).
Keep this in mind when you face unnecessary difficulty over something you are doing for the good of the whole. All of that amazing good stuff is inside of you, and through God's divine power - you  shall prevail!
