He’s Given You All Things… Including Himself

Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21).

Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” That’s a fundamental truth of the Gospel: the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ! However, as you get higher in the  understanding of the Gospel, you’d discover that Jesus really doesn’t stand away and give you eternal life; He’s Himself eternal life. In giving you eternal life, He actually gave you Himself. Hallelujah. No wonder, the Apostle Paul, by the Spirit, said,
“…all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21). That’s because all things are in Christ, and He’s in you. Therefore, all things are yours, things present and things to come. He couldn’t see anything that wasn’t already yours. The day you come to terms with the fact that all things  are yours, it’ll change your thinking and prayer life. You’d stop asking God for things. If it’s true that
all things are yours (and it’s true), what then could you possibly be asking for?
Stop praying and asking God for healing; take divine health, for it’s yours in Christ Jesus. If all things are yours because Christ is in you, it means that divine health is already yours; you don’t have to pray or ask for what’s already yours. What you do is to acknowledge
what belongs to you (Philemon 1:6); claim ownership of it in your words and actions. That’s how to walk in the Word and in the Spirit; affirming the Word  in faith, irrespective and independent of circumstances. Now, you can understand why the Lord Jesus said, “…Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on” (Luke 12:22). He’s your source and your sufficiency. In Him, you have all things. Refuse to be conscious of lack,
because in reality, there’s nothing you don’t have. Christ is in you, and Christ is everything. Hallelujah!

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for
giving me all things in Christ
Jesus. I cast all my cares upon
you and lay all burdens down
at your feet! I rejoice, knowing
that all my needs are met,
because Christ is my source
and my sufficiency! He’s my
all; in Him I have all I require
for life and godliness; all I
require to live triumphantly
and please Him in the life of
righteousness. Hallelujah.
