WHEN I THINK OF ALL THIS, I FALL TO MY KNEES AND PRAY TO THE FATHER, THE CREATOR OF EVERYTHING IN HEAVEN AND ON EARTH. I PRAY THAT FROM HIS GLORIOUS, UNLIMITED RESOURCES HE WILL EMPOWER YOU WITH INNER STRENGTH THROUGH HIS SPIRIT
(Ephesians 3:14-16 NLT).
Did you know that your Perfect Father, the Creator of everything in Heaven and on earth, has unlimited Resources from which He is able to supply what you need, even today? Maybe you believe that there is no answer for your problem. Maybe you believe that there is no solution for your unacceptable character. Maybe you believe that there is no remedy for your sinful habits and patterns of escape.
GREAT IS OUR LORD, AND OF GREAT POWER: HIS UNDERSTANDING IS INFINITE
Blessed Child, I am the Perfect Father, the Creator of everything in Heaven and on earth. I am of great Power…and I created YOU, too. Now, from My glorious, unlimited resources, I am able to empower you with inner strength through My Spirit, so you may have sufficiency in all things, from the inside out. All you need to do is DRAW from Me.
Fall to your knees and pray to Me, your Father in Heaven. My glorious Recourses are unlimited to supply everything you need for life and godliness, despite the ungodliness in your nature, the instability in your emotions, and the spitefulness in your will.
Look up, Child. I am able to make all My Grace abound toward you, so you may have what it takes to be gentle, good, gracious, faithful, patient, forgiving, and filled with self-control. My Grace is enough to cover your past failures and mistakes, to deal with your present guilt and shame, and to ensure a hopeful future.
AND GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TOWARD YOU; THAT YE, ALWAYS HAVING ALL SUFFICIENCY IN ALL THINGS, MAY ABOUND TO EVERY GOOD WORK
(2 Corinthians 9:8).
Regardless of your need, shortcoming, or defect, God is able to make all Grace abound toward you, so that you may have sufficiency in all things—in your will, your nature, your thoughts, your emotions, your desires…and your deeds.
For what problem in your life do you need to draw from the Perfect Father’s unlimited resources?
PRAYER: Lord God, how great You are! I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources You empower me with inner strength through Your Spirit, so I may have sufficiency in all things.
Maintain an Awareness
So, yes, the deepest urge in human nature seems to be the desire to be important–to matter. But, it is not the PRINCIPLE of wanting to be important that is wrong; instead, it is the way we adapt or the means we adopt to meet this most urgent desire of our hearts.
