All You Need Is Inside You!
For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself
I’m so inspired by the life of Jesus; during His earthly ministry, it didn’t matter what He faced, the solution was inside Him. He had the transcendent life; He was never ruffled by anything; He walked in the dominion of the Spirit. That’s the same life He’s given us; a life that requires no aid from outside 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).
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.” God answered by sending us the Holy Spirit. That was all we needed that we didn’t have, but which we now have. With the Holy Spirit coming into us, we got everything we could ever want in life.
Let me put it this way for you to have a clearer picture: when a man wants anything, which he feels he has no ability for, he prays to God and expects God to answer. However, that isn’t God’s dream for man. God didn’t create man to be limited or disadvantaged; He didn’t want man to need anything from outside him. That’s why He made the God-life available through Christ Jesus. When you received Christ, you received inherent life that requires no aid or support from outside.
Like Jesus, you not only have the God-life to the full, you also received the Spirit without measure (John 3:34); thus, all you need is inside you. What are the good things you desire? Bring them forth from within you with your words! What do you want; what do you need; what do you want to see outside? John 7:38 says, out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water. Go ahead and bring forth good things from within you: “A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things…” (Matthew 12:35).
Dear heavenly Father,
thank you for the glorious life you’ve given me. The power of the Holy Spirit is at work in me mightily. I’m making progress by the Word, and have become a distributor of eternal verities to everyone in my world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
