The JOURNEY- Everything You Need – 2Thess.1:2 MSG – Our God gives you everything you need, makes you everything you’re to be.

Why is it that, just when we think we have everything we need, we find something else that we think we need?

I think we often have a hard time defining what a need really is. I’ve seen people, including myself, that have felt like they needed something so bad and then after they get it, don’t need it near as bad as what they thought they did.

Few things in this world meet real expectations. We even ask God for things we don’t really need. What if we asked God to supply everything we need instead of everything we want? It may be that God can’t make us what we’re to be until we’re satisfied with just what He knows we need. It may be that God is wanting us to make Him our everything.  Some things we can live without but He’s not one of them. He is everything we will ever need in life and when we make Him our everything, He supplies our every need. He makes us complete as people. Whole as humans because He makes us what we’re to be when we make Him our everything. All we need to have in life and be in life can be found in Him for life. He’s everything if we’ll make Him our everything.
