All or Nothing
Why is it so easy to believe that God will provide for most of our needs but not all of them? From turning a mistake into a powerful testimony to healing a terminal illness, He’s more than capable to do it in each of our lives. I need you to hear that again. I’m not talking about your pastor’s life or your friend’s life. I’m talking about your life.
Have you ever given away something so meaningful that you hoped the person receiving it would hold it to an equally high standard? You surely wouldn’t give such a valued gift to just anyone. The recipient would have to mean more to you than the gift itself.
Imagine if that person received the gift but merely put to use a fraction of its capabilities. You might feel frustration over the fact that you could give away something so treasured only for its total worth to be neglected.
How many times have we chosen not to allow God’s will and complete authority to manifest in our lives? Maybe you trust that God can redeem you but you don’t believe that you could possibly live a full and powerful life on earth before entering Heaven’s gates. How unfortunate that God would give His most prized possession to be disregarded.
In Romans, Paul makes a striking declaration:
Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all,
won’t he also give us everything else?
Romans 8:32 NLT
To say that God has caused lack in your life whether in finances, health, or any other area is to say that giving His Son was a waste of a priceless and perfect gift. God is willing to give us what we need to live out a full life; we must first believe through faith. In fact, we must no longer accept sickness in our lives because by Jesus’ stripes we have already been healed (Isaiah 53:5). It is up to us to receive God’s freely given gifts with bold confidence.
Do you truly believe this for your own life? Ask God to confirm his promises in your heart and watch Him provide exceedingly abundantly in every area.
