Do you ever think about the word supply? It can be used as a noun or a verb. But both sorta mean the same almost. It means provision, equiped, having what you need.
If there is a hurricane, tornado, snow storm coming, we make sure we pack in whatever we think we will need and then some don't we? We don't want to be caught short of something important. Also if we are off on a trip, we get the vehicle checked out, we check the tires, change the oil, make sure we have snacks, and oh yes don't forget money for gas, hotels, food, whatever. And we usually take a little extra "just in case" don't we?
But how do we apply making sure we have enough supplies to our spiritual life? Hmmm
So let's look at some scriptures. And prayerfully this won't be to all over the place lol.
Phil 1:19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Can we ever have enough of a supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ? Probably not till we are with Him I think. What do you think?
How do we get the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ that we need daily?
2 Pet 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.
Ah a glimpse, we need knowledge of Him.
Verse 3 goes on to say, According as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
This says He has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness! But we know that right? Sometimes though we, well * I * seem to need a reminder.
Mt 6:33 says, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and HIS righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Again telling us to seek knowledge of God and He will provide.
Lk 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first and counteth te cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
We should plan ahead, but not just in our physical life, but in our spiritual life. It is easier to do in the physical isn't it?
How much supply of Christ do you need? Do you have enough? Will you ever have enough? Should you ever feel you have enough?
Personally I think if I feel I have enough, I am so far off of the path I should be on. I should always desire more of Christ.
MT 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.
Filled with what? Jesus Christ and His righteousness !!!
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
Oh to be full of Christ, so that all you see when you look at me is HIM. That is my prayer today for each of us.
