"And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation] " (2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC KJV )
What we just read is simply mind-blowing. It unveils God’s will for you; the life that He’s given you: it doesn’t require aid or support. Meaning that it doesn’t matter what you face, the solution is inside you. Being born again, you’ve already been given everything you’d ever need: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3).
Colossians 1:27 says, “…Christ in you, the hope of glory.” It doesn’t get better than that! Christ in you is everything. Jesus said in John 14:16, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.” The Holy Spirit is in you NOW! With the Holy Spirit in you, you have everything you could ever want in life; you can be anything and can do anything.
No level of greatness or height of success is too lofty for you to attain. You have infinite possibilities, limitless and unparalleled advantages in life. It’s part of the result of the God-life—the God-nature in you. God didn’t create you to be in want of anything. Everything is inside you. Eternity is in your heart (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
That’s why He said, “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things…” (Matthew 12:35). What are the good things you desire? What do you want? What do you want to see? Bring them forth from within you with your faith-filled words! John 7:38 says, "Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water"— words of life and power. Hallelujah!
"Dear Father, I thank you for my triumphant life in Christ! Thank you for the Holy Spirit who lives in me and in whom and through whom I can do all things and fulfil my destiny to your glory. Thank you for granting me all that I require for life and godliness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen."
