Chasing trouble or chasing promise

And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. 2 Pet. 1:4

Human beings have a natural instinct for making our own trouble and tend toward destructive wants and selfishness.  Even though we know the good things God promises we often choose to chase our own brand of  trouble. If we chase His truth instead He shares His own nature with us to redirect our tendencies toward spiritual health and unselfishness.

Lord,  thank you for the promises that change me.
