19 December 2022 ‘He gave us his Son – will he not also freely give us all things?’ Romans 8:32 GNT

Do you like to collect Bible promises for challenging times? When your collection doesn’t seem to be enough, do you add to it, thinking, ‘I just haven’t found the right promise yet’? Claiming the promise without really understanding the Promiser can leave us feeling disappointed. There’s no lack in God, so He’s all we need. And He is all we’ll ever need, for any situation! The Bible says, He can do ‘immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine’ (Ephesians 3:20 NIV). Author Hannah Whitall Smith was going through a difficult time in life, so to look for some relief, she visited a respected Bible teacher in the hope that she’d find an answer. After listening attentively, the teacher told her, ‘Yes, all you say may be very true, but then, in spite of it all, there is God.’ Frustrated, Hannah responded, ‘Surely you did not understand how very serious…my difficulties are.’ ‘Oh yes, I did, but then, as I tell you, there is God.’ Several disappointing visits later, after hearing the same response, ‘There is God,’ the light dawned. She realised she had received the answer she needed; God alone was enough for all her needs! Hannah wrote: ‘The all-sufficiency of God ought to be…[to us], as the all-sufficiency of a good mother is to [her] child…[Her] presence and…love…make all fears…disappear. [She doesn’t need] to make any promises and…explanations, [she alone] is all that the child needs.’ All God’s blessings come in one package – Himself! Paul reminds you, ‘Everything belongs to you, [because] you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God’ (1 Corinthians 3:22-23 CEV). We’re His redeemed children, and He’ll provide everything we need.
