Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 26th July – Follow Jesus’ Example

(Have No Consciousness Of Need)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Peter 1:3
“…His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue.”

LET’S TALK
There’re people living their lives in worry and fear for the future; they’ve heard so much from the news media about the depletion and decimation of world economies, and they’re uncertain about the integrity of their state support systems.

But as you study the scriptures and grow in God’s Word, you’d come to realise that everything you could ever want has been provided in the Word.

1 Corinthians 1:9 says, “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” You’ve been called into fellowship with Jesus Christ. That means you’ve been brought into oneness, a partnership or family union with Jesus Christ.

If this is true, what in the world could you ever need? Every good thing you could ever want in your life or have enough sense to ask for is wrapped up in Christ. To have Christ is to have everything.

Our opening scripture says He’s already given you all things that pertain to life and godliness. Your approach to the Word of God should be, “If God says it, then my response is “Yes.”

If He says I have all things in Christ, then it means all things are mine; no need to ask for anything because all my needs have been provided in Christ.”

Let this be the way you think. What God wants isn’t for us to use prayer as an avenue to ask Him for the things we need; rather, the purpose of prayer is our fellowship with Him. That’s what He seeks. Jesus had no consciousness of need; follow His example.

Philippians 4:6; 1 Corinthians: 3:21; Philippians 4:19

Speak:
I have no consciousness of need because Christ is in me, and He’s my all! With Him, I have everything. My life is one of ever-increasing glory as I live in, and by, the Word, and constantly fellowship with the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
