Some times I wonder, “Do I have what it takes?”.
“Will I make it though to the end?”
“I’ve made it this far, but what will guarantee I’ll make it through the unknown, the challenges that lay lurking around the corner – let alone the overwhelming obstacles right in front of me?”.
When faced with our own weaknesses and frailties we can end up discouraged and despondent.
But God gives us each a promise that we do have what it takes! We can make it through to the end, not because of our own capacity, but the gift of His Spirit:
“You have every spiritual gift you need as you eagerly wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ”
1 Corinthians 1:7 (NLT)
God is saying that He has given you everything you need to endure right to the end. This word, ‘gift’ is the Greek word, ‘charisma’ which is especially used to designate the gifts of the Spirit.
In other words, He has equipped you with the spiritual gifts you need to make it through the road He has called you to follow! Jesus has poured out His Spirit upon you in a tailor made, personal way that is fitting for the journey ahead.
There is no need to worry! You have what it takes!! You will make it through to the end!
Receive a fresh infilling of His Spirit today, and live your life in a way that will count in eternity!
