Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content.

1 Timothy 6:6-8 (NLT)

Friend, God by your faith in his word has made you content, complete and sufficient. You see, through faith in the Lord Jesus you have entered into a bond of unity with the spirit of the almighty God. You have become joined with the Lord Jesus in holy union, and as one who is married, you have become one with him in spirit; as such, all he has is yours. Think about it for a moment: all that the Lord has is yours. All of it: his glorious name, his awesome power, his wisdom (the depth and breadth of it) and his eternal life. And so his word says concerning you: and in him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in him, who is the head of all principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 NKJV

No wonder, David declared: the Lord is my shepherd I shall not want (Psalms 23:1). This means you lack nothing, you have all you need. Hallelujah! You have been clothe with God’s righteousness, you are godly and holy. Praise God! God did this for you through Christ Jesus, so that you will have no reason to seek another god. He did it so that you can walk with him in contentment, without fear and without greed (Hebrews 13:4-6).

Say this with me: I have the sufficiency of God in my relationships, in my household and in all my financial affairs. I have been bought with a price, I belong to Jesus. Hallelujah! I have been united with him in his death, I was buried with him through baptism. And now that he is risen again from the dead, I am risen with him to eternal life. I am full of faith to God, through Christ. Amen.
