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. [NLT] – 2 Peter 1:4

….

The culmination/result of God’s gift to you is the complete accomplishment of his gracious purpose in your life; but the length of time with which the benefits of that gift stays with you depends on your continual growth in HIM. You cannot expect to enjoy immeasurable favour from God if say you go on to destroy another’s life. Yes God’s gifts and promises are without repentance, but through your actions you prevent it from taking hold and moving you in the direction it ought to have. God’s precious promises when realized in our soul enable us to become partakers of HIS Divine nature, and to escape from corruption. We cannot expect to escape corruption if we are not living in the promises of God.

You need His promises to share His divine nature that will enable you to succeed in living a God centred life. See to it that you make this a priority in your life.
