God's Sufficiency For Godly Living, Part 2c Wednesday, August 14, 2019
"Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God." - 2 Corinthians 3:5 Mankind learns naturally, through even his earliest experiences in life, how to rely upon his own sufficiency. The world teaches that for a man to make a way for himself, he is called to do what he can do and be what he can be. He is the captain of his own destiny and what he makes of himself will be his lot in life. We are all familiar with the kingdom of man, but the kingdom of God is of a different sort. It resembles very little to the kingdom of man. Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36). And we are reminded that His thoughts and ways are higher than ours and higher than the heavens are above the earth (Isaiah 55:8). In the kingdom of heaven, we are called to live by the sufficiency of God rather than the sufficiency of man.
