FULLY SELF-SUFFICIENT – Pastor Chris
Wednesday, December 12, 2018
And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation] (2 Corinthians 9:8 AMPC).
I made up my mind many years ago to walk in the fullness of the blessings of the scripture above, and I’ve been living in it ever since. It’s the life Christ has given us. Under all circumstances, and whatever the need is, we’re supposed to be fully self-sufficient, requiring no aid or support! Sadly, this hasn’t been the experience of many, because most have never been taught, while some haven’t dared to believe it.
Don’t settle for a beggarly life. You’re an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ. Everything the Father owns belongs to you; think and live as one who truly owns the world, for you truly do. God has made you self-sufficient, requiring no aid or support.
The Greek word for “sufficiency” is “autarkeia,” from where we get Autarchy, an economic system of self-sufficiency. This is what we have in Christ. If you’d learn to activate this life, you’d live in absolute prosperity.
Your success in life isn’t dependent on circumstances. Think about it: Does God need help? Does He need supply, aid or support from anywhere? Of course not! Being His children, He expects us to come to this understanding.
Even if you’re already advanced in years; in your old age, you can still be in prosperity. He says, “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures” (Job 36:11). This is the life He’s given us; one of superabundance, where you possess enough for every good work and charitable donation. Glory to God!
God has made all grace—every favour and earthly blessing—come to me in abundance, so that always, and under all circumstances and whatever the need, I’m self-sufficient, possessing enough to require no aid or support, and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation! I’ll never be broke in my life, for all things are mine! Hallelujah!
