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

Dear Father,

What a promise this! What a statement this is! You not only speak about your ability to care for me in an over-the-top way, but you also promise to give me exactly what you need to do what you want me to do. So many times as I go about my day I think that I’m short on time, short on money, short on gifts, short on all kinds of things. So often I feel like I’m missing what I need to do what I need to do. But that’s not what you tell me here! Here you tell me that you have for me exactly what I need to have for the work you want me to do. I have exactly enough time to do what you want me to do - O Spirit, help me make good use of my time. I have exactly enough money to do what you want me to do - O Spirit, make me a good manager of the financial resources you’ve given me. I have exactly the gifts, skills and abilities that you want me to have - O Spirit, empower me to use them for your glory. Father, you have given me and will give me exactly what I need to do what you want me to do. Give me a contented and joyful heart about what you have given me. And then, give me wisdom and strength to carry it out.

Amen.

I am not lacking any gift. God, my Father, has given me exactly what he wants me to have to do what he wants me to do.
