We Have Everything We Need ~ Sunday Devotional
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
When we are in Christ, we have His Spirit within us. That Spirit gives us what we need to live the life He’s designed for us.
You and I have everything we need in Christ.
There is no need to go seeking and searching for more. Too often we complicate our own lives.
We consult. We research. We hire experts. We look for loopholes. We wait for the other shoe to drop. “There must be more,” we say. “It’s surely not that easy, is it,” we ask.
When it comes to caring for our bodies, we look for a diet plan or program, a shake or a supplement, to solve our weight problems.
But God has given us what we need.
We invest time, money, and mental energy that could be used better elsewhere.
He is our Creator. He knows our bodies better than anyone. When we focus on Him, He’ll direct us in how to care well for our own body. That may require making an effort to drink more water than you’re used to drinking or going for a walk when you don’t normally do so. But when you trust Him to guide your efforts, He’ll give you the strength to honor your body in a healthy way. He will guide you on the path that is right for you.
What is your need today? Are you looking to and relying on God, or are you looking elsewhere?
Start with God. Take your needs to Him. He has everything you need.
