I don’t have a big, fancy home. I don’t have a luxury vehicle. I don’t have the finest clothing or shoes. I don’t have natural, silky hair. I don’t have the body of Beyoncé or Kim Kardashian. I don’t have an earthly husband.. I don’t have 24/7 obedient children. I don’t have perfection. I could go on and on about what I DON’T HAVE, but let me boast that I DO HAVE JESUS and HE is MORE than all of that other stuff to me. As a matter of fact, JESUS can give me all of that other stuff if it is in HIS WILL for me to have it. I didn’t always focus on Christ because my attention was stuck on wanting this and wanting that. Needing this and needing that. All I ever needed was JESUS. I don’t have to have all of that other stuff but I have to have JESUS. When I think of His Goodness and His Love for me, I delight in know that I have HIM in my life. Are you caught in all of the things that you don’t have but want? If so, just look up! JESUS is WHO you need and JESUS has WHAT you need. JESUS is….the Bread of Life…the Way, the Truth, and the Life….our Savior and Lord…our Rock…our Redeemer…the Light of the World…our Peace…the Beginning and the End…our Deliverer…the Good Shepherd. He is Mighty and Worthy. Jesus is the One who sets us free. “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3 NIV).
