Now He that hath wrought us for the selfsame Thing is God, who also hath given unto us the Earnest of the Spirit. Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 2 Corinthians 5:5-7. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, may give unto you the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM: The Eyes of your Understanding being ENLIGHTENED; that ye may KNOW what is the Hope of His Calling, and what the Riches of the Glory of His Inheritance in the saints, And what is the Exceeding Greatness of His Power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His Mighty Power, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put ALL THINGS under His Feet, and gave Him to be the Head OVER ALL THINGS TO THE CHURCH, WHICH IS HIS BODY, the Fulness of Him that filleth All in All. Ephesians 1:17-19,21-23. Now, here comes the hard part here on this earth, NOW. If Christ is our Inheritance, if He is or All in All, our Provision, our Keeper AND our Sword and Shield, WHAT RIGHT DO WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING??? If Everything is in His Hands, and if He distributes to everyone exactly what each one needs TO BLESS THEM AND TO GROW THEM IN CHRIST AND CHRISTLIKENESS, then is ANYTHING too expensive for the Lord? DON'T MISUNDERSTAND, HE DOES REQUIRE OBEDIENCE WITH THE INHEIRATANCE YOU ARE STEWARD OVER, WHETHER A LOT, OR A LITTLE. Consider this, He'll even hold back some Provision, and give you a "big expense", just to see if you'll JOYFULLY Praise Him in ALL things anyway, THEN ask Him which direction is the Obedient one, and THEN He opens the floodgates to take care of that expense. Yup, that's my God, always looking for ways to Grow me in Christ. My LACK is His opportunity to show me my Faith, to Grow my Faith, and for me to, Be Blessed.
