Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Tuesday 31st August 2021
One of the attributes of God is that He’s
self-sufficient. He doesn’t need anything
from anyone or anywhere. Everything is in Him. He
doesn’t “need” power He is power. He doesn’t
“need” wisdom He is wisdom. He doesn’t “need”
righteousness He is righteousness. He’s the selfexistent
and self-sufficient God. Did you know that’s the life
He’s given you as well?
Like Him, you don’t have to depend on external
forces or factors. Everything you require to fulfil all that
God wants you to do, and to be all that He created you
to be is in you. Consider the Greek rendering of the
word “content” in our theme scripture it’s “autarkes,”
from where the English derived the word “Autarchy.”
Autarchy is the policy of economic independence
on external forces to be self-sufficient. When you
study 2 Corinthians 9:8 (AMPC), you see this clearly
as God’s will for His children. It says, “And God is able
to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing)
come to you in abundance, so that you may always
and under all circumstances and whatever the need
be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no
aid or support and furnished in abundance for every
good work and charitable donation].”
This is simple to comprehend because truly, a
Christian is one in whom Christ dwells, and Christ is
everything. When you have Christ, you’re full you have
it all. This was something I meditated on much in my
youth, and I made up my mind it was going to be my
experience and it’s been ever since.
Make up your mind to live in blessings and
abundance, because it’s the life God has given to you
in Christ. Refuse to allow circumstances determine or
dictate the outcome of your life. Live in God’s Word.
Even if it’s power you thought you needed, the Holy
Spirit Himself, who is the power of God, lives in you.
His power in you is inherent self-generating. Your
responsibility is to activate and put it to work at all
times. Get to know who you are and live accordingly,
independent of circumstances. Hallelujah!
