God has given you everything you need

God has given you everything you need

22 December 2018
‘My God turns my darkness into light.’

God not only redeemed you and called you to serve Him, He also equipped you. Everything you need to fulfil your assignment is in your life right now, just waiting for you to recognise it. Anything that’s unrecognised becomes unappreciated; and anything that’s unappreciated becomes unrewarded; and anything that’s unrewarded eventually leaves your life. During the days of the California gold rush a young couple became obsessed with the quest for gold. They sold their farm and everything they owned and went out West to search for it. Failure after failure, they eventually ended up bankrupt and moved to Europe. Many years later they returned to America and decided to visit their old farm. But when they arrived they found it surrounded by security guards and a high wire fence. When they inquired, they discovered that under their old farm was the second-largest gold reserve in America – and it was now owned by the government. God has placed resources and people all around you that you’re not seeing. Some of the biggest gifts in your life have yet to be recognised because they’re in seed form. And your failure to recognise them is costing you dearly. Paul wrote to the Ephesian believers saying, ‘I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened’ (Ephesians 1:18 NIV 2011 Edition). And David prayed, ‘Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law’ (Psalm 119:18 NIV 2011 Edition). Sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees. There’s treasure in you and around you that you’ll never see until God reveals it to you. And He will, if you seek Him.
