Do you understand that all of God’s resources are at your disposal? God makes it possible for you to prosper in all areas of your life through his grace.
2 Co 9:8-9
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. As it is written,
“He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor;
his righteousness endures forever.”
When you have lack in your life. It sometimes can lead to temptation. There may come a point where you want to fill that void with something and you usually don’t choose to fill it with things of God. Being without or suffering is not a path to holiness as religion would make you believe.
And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
