Relying on God’s Resources

Our generous God loves to respond when we call on Him for help.

Ephesians 1:1-14

Do you ever feel defeated in your spiritual life? The problem may be that you’re depending on your own assets and abilities instead of God’s inexhaustible riches, which He has deposited into your account.

With God, we don’t have to worry about running out of time, energy, money, or resources. He has promised to equip us with everything needed for the purpose to which we’ve been called. In fact, we are heirs of great and glorious riches. Consider a few of God’s generous blessings:

• You are His workmanship (Ephesians 2:10). God saved you by His grace and He’s sanctifying you the same way. The work of transforming and empowering you is the Lord’s; your role is simply to cooperate and depend on Him.

• You have immediate access to God (Hebrews 4:16). Divine help is only a prayer away.

• You have the Holy Spirit indwelling you (Eph. 1:13-14). He not only brings guidance and understanding of God’s Word; He also enables you to obey Jesus.

As human beings, we’re used to having finite resources, but there’s no such thing with God. When we remember His unlimited provisions and depend on them, we’ll discover rest, peace, and confidence in Christ.
