Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful [joyous, "prompt-to-do-it") giver [whose heart is in his giving]. And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need, be SELF-SUFFICIENT [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]." (2 Corinthians 9:7, 8 – AMP)
"I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I AM SELF-SUFFICIENT IN CHRIST'S SUFFICIENCY]." (Philippians 4:13 – AMP)
Today I will live in the now! I will live in the now because I have learned how to depend on the Christ in me to bring me through the events of the day with obvious success.
Today I will appreciate the power of the prayer of agreement, but I will remain confident in the fact that I can pray for myself – by myself – if I have to.
Today I will take to heart words of encouragement from others, but I will remember that I can encourage myself if no one else is around to edify me.
Today I will be blessed and honored by the support of my peers, but, ultimately, I will believe in myself whether anyone else believes in me or not.
Today I will enjoy the company of friends and loved ones if possible, but I will equally enjoy my own company if they are not available.
Today I will participate in the anointing of corporate worship if the situation presents itself, but I will singularly worship the Lord in spirit and in truth if it doesn't.
Today I will remember that I am never alone because Jesus has promised to be with me always, even to the ends of the earth. I can depend on myself because I depend on Him. I will expect this day to be great, whether I am in a crowd or by myself, and today I will live in the now!
Father, help me to be self-sufficient in You today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
