Jesus – My Everything?

I heard Him whisper this question, “Can I be your everything”?  I knew He was calling me to come closer, to step up higher.  I wondered what that might mean.  Would I have to walk away from all non-spiritual activities?  Spend more time in prayer?  Think of nothing else?

I am very passionate about Jesus, but I wondered if I could do that.  I have a family and obligations. I WANTED TO SAY YES, BUT…

Then He took me to 1 Corinthians 13:12.  In that verse it says, “My understanding is incomplete now, but one day I will understand everything.”

“Hmmm…”

The next morning as I was listening to one of my favorite speakers, she made the statement, “Jesus wants to be our everything!”  My ears perked up.  Jesus was answering my question.

She continued to say, “Jesus wants to give us everything we need!”  I had it backwards!!  I thought He was wanting more from me, but He was telling me that He wants to give more to me!  Everything!  Everything I need.

Our God wants us to lack no good thing (Psalms 34:10).  His Word says that Jesus came  to give us an abundant life (John 10:10).  God will supply everything I need in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

So what can I give Him?  First, my heart to love Him, my breath to praise Him, my hands and feet to use as His own.  I will give Him my talents, my personality, my health and energy.  I will give Him my everyday life just doing everyday things as He calls me to do them.  All for His Glory.

This, I can do.
