“You have all you need” is something I hear a lot when I am praying. I hear it especially when I have a lot on my mind. When I start to think about what I don’t have and what I need, the Holy Spirit gently whispers to me that I have all that I need. He comforts me and reassures me and then it is up to me to trust Him and to walk in faith knowing that I don’t have to worry about anything. Why? Because it is true. With the Lord as my Savior, I have all I need. Jesus died on the cross for me so I could have all I need. The Holy Spirit dwells in me so I have all I need. Love covers me and protects me so I have all I need. God is with me 24/7 so I have all I need. Jesus supplies my needs according to His riches in glory so I have all I need. The peace that surpasses all understanding is in me so I have all I need. I walk by faith and not by sight and my faith tells me and shows me that I have all I need. I could easily find something to worry about every day but the Lord won’t let me. He is there to open my eyes to the reality of His Gospel. He takes care of me and that is the end of the story. I don’t have to add negative endings. I don’t have to rewrite His beautiful story by overthinking and creating wrong scenarios in my head.
God is our provider, friend, so we have all we need. Now, take some time to meditate on that truth. Hold on to it all day long. Apply it to every circumstance and to every situation you find yourself in. Think about what it means for you all the time. Think about the power of that truth in your life. You have all you need from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to bed and during the night. It is not the way you might be thinking so you might need to renew your mind regarding this great declaration. Do the work. Work on your thinking and let your mind see the light. Jesus made it clear that you have nothing to worry about. Your mind likes to worry and it makes everything dark. Walk into the light of Jesus’ words. Trust His words more than you trust the dark picture of your life. That picture is not a real picture. It is a sad distortion of God’s amazing picture of your life. In His picture you are all set. In His picture you lack nothing. In His picture you have the best of the best all day long.
“You have all you need” says the Lord and that includes provision in all matters. Let’s say you have an interview and you are getting ready for it. Remember that in Jesus’ name you have all you need which implies that you have what it takes to pass the interview. The Lord will be with you in that room while you are being asked about your skills and what you can bring to the table. You have all it takes to do well and to be a blessing in that job. That is what you bring to the table. You have the Holy Spirit in you and you believe in Jesus. That is what you bring to the table. You don’t have to talk about the Lord. Your actions and your words will speak for you and demonstrate that you are a child of the Lord and as a child of the Most High, you have all you need. You are a success. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. You are blessed. You are favored. You are a blessing who doesn’t favor some people more than others. You are a light in this world and you have the light of the Lord in your heart. You have all you need.
My prayer today is that you always remember that Jesus has done it all. He did it on the cross for once and for all and you are reaping the benefits of His precious sacrifice. All day long you have all you need. You lack nothing. Start thinking that way. Start speaking that way. Start believing that way. It is the truth and nothing can change the truth. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
