Everything I Have

Everything I Have

15 August 2009

Scripture:

Now they know that everything I have is a gift from you. (John 17:7 NLT)

Jesus’ prayer for his disciples in John 17 is most often referred to for its emphasis on unity in verses 20-23. Today as I asked God to speak to me from my daily reading, it was this statement from verse seven that really spoke to me “...everything I have is a gift from you.”

As I sit here and think about my life, I know that everything I have is a gift from God. My family, my friends, the house I live in, my purposeful life, it is all a gift from a loving Father.

Prayer:

Father, Today I thank you with new appreciation and gratitude. Everything I have is a gift from you. Help me to use what you have given me well and wisely. Help me to find the best ways to share with others out of your great generosity to me. Amen.
