Everything You Need - July 6, 2016

The psalmist says, “I know the LORD is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me” (Psalm 16:8).

Need more energy? You have it. More kindness? It’s yours. Could you use more self-control? Or self-confidence? Just press the gas pedal. Scripture reminds us, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life” (2 Peter 1:3).  And that life begins with a paradigm shift.

Like Joshua and the Israelites marching into Canaan, you do not fight FOR victory. You fight FROM victory. In the wilderness you strive, but in Canaan you trust. In the wilderness you seek God’s attention, but in the promised land, you already have God’s favor. In the wilderness you doubt your salvation, but in Canaan you know you are saved. You move from wanting to have—to believing you already do!

From God is With You Every Day
