Your Daily ‘Spiritual Supplements’

‘Our sufficiency is from God.’ 2 Corinthians 3:5 NKJV

Christian counsellor Dr Ann Shorb writes, ‘Each morning I reach for an assortment of nutritional supplements. Each has something I need, but not one by itself is enough to provide everything.’ Here are the ‘spiritual supplements’ she says she takes:

(1) His death on the cross is sufficient for my salvation: ‘He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him… He… lives to make intercession for them.’ (Hebrews 7:25 NKJV)

(2) His strength is sufficient for my weakness: ‘He gives strength to those who are tired and more power to those who are weak.’ (Isaiah 40:29 NCV)

(3) His authority is sufficient for my struggles: Jesus said, ‘All authority has been given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Go therefore.’ (Matthew 28:18–19 NKJV)

(4) His power is sufficient to restore me: ‘The Lord upholds all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down.’ (Psalm 145:14 NKJV)

(5) His wisdom and knowledge are sufficient to direct me: ‘He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.’ (Job 23:10 NKJV)

(6) His grace is sufficient for all my needs: ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ (2 Corinthians 12:9 NKJV)

Sometimes you’ll hear Psalm 51:12 quoted as ‘Restore unto me the joy of my salvation,’ instead of ‘Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation.’ There’s a big difference! My salvation means me working to be saved and never knowing if I’ve done enough. Thy salvation depends totally on Christ’s finished work on Calvary. It acknowledges that while we’ll never be ‘sufficient of ourselves… our sufficiency is from God.’
