Spiritual Supplements

Each morning I reach for an assortment of prescriptions and vitamins.  Each has something I need, but not one by itself is enough to provide everything.  Here are some “spiritual supplements” for you to consider:

  • His death on the cross is sufficient for my salvation.  (Hebrews 7:25).
  • His strength is sufficient for my weakness.  (Isaiah 40:29).
  • His authority is sufficient for my struggles.  (Matthew 28:18,19).
  • His power is sufficient to restore me.  (Psalm 145:14).
  • His wisdom and knowledge are sufficient to direct me.  (Job 23:10).
  • His grace is sufficient for all my needs.  (2 Corinthians 12:9).   

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 Your salvation.”  There’s a big difference!  My salvation means me working to be saved and never knowing if I’ve done enough.  Your salvation depends totally on Christ’s finished work on Calvary.  It acknowledges that while we’ll never be sufficient in ourselves, our sufficiency is from God
