So I was sitting at work, listening to music when one of my all-time favorite songs came on and almost brought me to tears. Yup…right there at my desk
Here are the lyrics: All in AllYou are my strength when I am weakYou are the treasure that I seekYou are my all in allSeeking you as a precious jewelLord to give up I’d be a foolYou are my all in allTaking my sin, my cross, my shameRising again I bless Your nameYou are my all in allWhen I fall down You pick me upWhen I am dry You fill my cupYou are my all in allJesus, Lamb of GodWorthy is Your nameJesus, Lamb of GodWorthy is Your name
All through the Bible we see verses about God being sufficient for all that we need. Here are just a couple…
Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God
2 Corinthians 3:5
I can do all things through him who strengthens me
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.
2 Corinthians 9:8
Why is it so hard to make sure this stays in the front of our minds and make sure our vision doesn’t become clouded with the things going on in this world. When distractions come, we must rely on the Lord, and realize that He is worthy, He is holy, and He is sufficient to take care of our needs. As the song says He is our strength when we are weak, so we must rely on that strength, and not our own to help us walk in this crazy world.
Listen to this song, and imagine how precious his gift to us is, and realize that he’s got this, he is our All in All!
I love you guys, and can’t wait to serve with you tonight!!
