A Resurrected Savior
“God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)
Christ is able to provide and sustain and protect without anything other than the counsel of His own will. His work in us is unto an eternal end and will find total completion, with no mistakes and no defects. He knew exactly and precisely when, where, and to whom you would be born. He knew the hills you would have to climb, the mountains you would have to scale, the valleys you would have to walk through, all of the experiences that would be attached to your life, and the circumstances you would be required to survive.
All things were created by Him and in Him dwells the fullness of God. Every human alive can be made totally complete in Him. All wisdom and revelation are hidden in Him. Everything is under His authority. All our sins have been forgiven by Him. He is the firstborn of all creation, able to do immeasurably more than we could ever imagine. He existed before creation itself. He was the I AM long before Abraham came into being. He needs no motivating and requires no human intervention. He is consistent in His provisions and never changes in His steadfast love. He is always prayer-answering, always way-making, always blessing-giving, always grace-providing, always mercy-extending, always need-supplying. He never runs out, and never runs away. He is complete in and of Himself.
And this truth of His all-sufficiency must become your conviction. His all-sufficiency is always brought to bear on your human circumstances. It’s the reason you pray and worship. It's why you approach His throne with boldness and walk in authority. Whenever you think in a restricted and limited way and give into negative thoughts and anxiety-driven imaginations, please hear the apostle Paul when he says that there is available for you enough grace to abound in every good work. Christ’s all-sufficiency is more than enough to cover the demands of your life today.
