There is Nothing More We Need

Scripture

"And all those who heard them kept them in their hearts, saying, 'What kind of child will this be?' And the hand of the Lord was with him." (Luke 1:66)

Observation

The birth of John the Baptist was announced by Gabriel who stands in the presence of the Lord. His birth was accompanied by signs, and the people were amazed at the circumstances surrounding his birth. The people could see that the Lord was with John. The ministry of John the Baptist came with very little in terms of resources, but with a heavy dose of the Spirit of God.

Application

Anointing comes from the Lord alone. The anointing is complete to accomplish His will in our lives. Sometimes we think that we need money, or assets, or support, or anything else that man can provide to be able to accomplish the will of God. We do need the rest of the body of Christ, but the anointing He gives us is complete. John the Baptist had a cloak of fur and he ate locusts and honey, but "no one was greater born of woman.' John had a tremendous ministry, but by the standards of the world he had little. In the spiritual realm he lacked nothing.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, allow me to do your work with what you have provided to me. I am grateful and know that you have given me all that I need to complete the ministry that you have placed in front of me. Thank you for your provision. In Jesus' name, amen.
