God has not promised health and wealth;
But offers peace and grace
Sufficient for our weaknesses,
Enough to run our race.
And it is by His power divine
That we can overcome,
And be partakers of the nature
Of His own dear Son.
A great and precious promise, then:
We will have all we need
To live, for Him, a godly life -
His grace will intercede.
And as that grace is multiplied,
The world will lose its sway.
For we’ll find all we need in Him –
The Truth, the Life …the Way.
“May grace and peace be multiplied to you
through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.
His divine power has given us everything required
for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us
by His own glory and goodness.
By these He has given us very great and precious promises,
so that through them you may share in the divine nature,
escaping the corruption that is in the world ...”
2 Peter 1:2-4 HCSB
