WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT?
(The Lord Has Given You Everything!)
TO THE BIBLE 2 Peter 1:2-3 NASB
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.”
The truth in our opening verse is also paralleled in 1 Corinthians 3:21-22; it says, “Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours.” Did you notice it doesn’t say “some things,” or “only the things you pray about are yours?” Rather, it says all things are yours! This is the reality. Affirm it. Believe the Word and act accordingly.
The Word of God is very clear about this. This isn’t something to argue with, doubt or negotiate. Everything you require: the money, facilities, ideas, vision, human, and material resources, etc., have all been granted you in Christ Jesus. You have everything that’s required for an extraordinary life of righteousness and glory in the earth; everything that’s necessary for you to live and excel in the God-life. This means you can live for God; you can be effective in doing things for Him, ministering to Him, and living triumphantly every day! Knowing this, therefore,
how could you be in lack?
David said, “The LORD is my shepherd; I have everything I need” (Psalm 23:1 GNB). With this kind of consciousness, how could you ever live the down life? It’s not possible! Refuse to see the problems and lapses in this world. Live the higher life. You’re Abraham’s seed. Live above this world’s systems. It doesn’t matter the circumstances in the earth realm; you’re not of the earth. Do what the Word says, and walk your way upwards from glory to glory.
1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God,
To the saints who are in Ephesus, and faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Redemption in Christ
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
1 Corinthians 3:21-23
21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours:
22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours.
23 And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s.
I’ve been blessed and fortified in Christ Jesus with everything I need for life, and godliness; therefore, I live triumphantly today and always! I’m walking in the glory of God, pleasing Him in all things, and fruitful in every good work. He’s made my life pleasant; I’m a delightsome land, a tree of righteousness, producing fruits of righteousness. Blessed be the Lord!
