February 2019 – The Month of the All Sufficient God
As we abide in God’s presence and glory this year 2019, I counsel that you dwell with Him in praises and worship. Be thankful unto Him because He is awesome, and He is El-Shaddai, the “All Sufficient God”.
2 Peter 1:3 quotes “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, “
What will make year 2019 successful for you? Are You expecting God to meet a particular need? You may have a physical weakness or disease that you would like to see God cure. You may want God to restore a broken relationship or get you into a relationship that will lead to marriage. Your need may be in the area of job, immigration status, academics and financial. Your need may fall into Spiritual, physical, social and mental realms. Our Lord is the All-Sufficient God who can meet all your needs according to His glory and virtue.
The Good news is that our God by His divine power has made available for us all things that pertain to life and godliness. All our needs are embodied and categorized in “all things that pertain to life and Godliness,” as written in 2 Peter 1:3. All that is required of us is to tap into these provisions by faith.
We are also encouraged to be aware and have confident in the Almighty God who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Romans 8:32. Our Lord is able to give us freely, all things that pertain to living a productive and righteous life. He is our shepherd and we shall not lack any good thing.
God provided for His children in all circumstances. Adam and Eve found that they were naked after they sinned, The Lord God made garments of skin for them and clothed them. Genesis 3:21. When the whole world had sinned and God wanted to destroy the world with flood, God gave Noah the instruction to make a comfortable ark for himself, his family and other living creatures to sustain them. What a mighty God we serve! In the book of Ezra, the Lord stirred the heart of an unbelieving King Cyprus to direct the children of Israel in exile in Babylon, to go back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple of God. King Cyprus did not send them back to Jerusalem empty handed, he sent them with silver and gold. An incapacitated lame Mephibosheth was sought out by King David to do him favor. Our all Sufficient God is capable of meeting you at every point of your need.
By His stripes we are healed. The Lord Jesus healed the blind, the dumb, the deaf and the lame. He raised the dead, provided money from the mouth of a fish, turned fruitless and frustrating all night fish catching labor of Peter and his comrades into catching innumerable fish, in obedience to Jesus directives, For promotion comes neither from the east nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge: He puts down one, And exalts another Psalm 75:6-7. So our All Sufficient God is able to handle all your concerns and give you a future that is packed with success and an expected end.
All you have to do is to trust Him, delight yourself in Him and He will give you the desires of your heart.
