This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)
Today I am reminding you that you already have everything you need.
We are continuing our series on – “What’s Holding You Back,” where we’re taking a closer look at those thoughts that keep you from pursuing the life God has for you.
Recently, I was invited to an event, and I asked myself a question that I hadn’t asked in nearly two years – “What will I wear?”
I looked around in a few stores and even shopped online, but I came up empty. Ultimately, I relented and resorted to shopping in my own closet. Much to my surprise, I was able to put together the perfect outfit – I even had the accessories!
Often, we feel that what we have is not enough… that we need more…that we need something new. This mindset can keep you stagnant and distracted from the fact that God has already given you all you need to accomplish what He put on your heart to do.
This is a similar lesson that David taught King Saul. Saul attempted to prepare David for his battle with Goliath by giving him a lot of armor to wear.
David explained to Saul that when he watched over his father’s sheep and a lion or bear came to steal a lamb, he just used his bare hands to club and attack the animal.
What he was really telling Saul is that God had already equipped him with everything he needed to defeat Goliath.
Don’t let the idea that you are not enough or what you have isn’t enough hold you back from fulfilling those works God has put on your heart to do.
As you think about that, remember these words:
And 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)
So today, your needs are met!
