God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
02/20/09 - WOW! God’s grace sees to it that we have everything we need at all times so that our good works will flourish. That is supremely reassuring in the tough economic times we are now experiencing. But here’s the catch: what do you really need? This verse doesn’t say we’ll have multiple cars and vacation homes. It doesn’t say we’ll dress in designer clothes and eat gourmet meals every night. It says that God will provide what we need to do good work. Based on Jesus’ remarks to the rich man in Mark 10:18, I believe that any “good” work is one that God tasks me with, not something I take it upon myself to do – even for Him. This is one powerful verse of scripture. Take a moment to reflect on what you really need.
