God Promises to Give Me Everything I Need to Sustain My Life
The Bible verse of yesterday came from Matthew 16. I worry a lot because I know that people and God can do whatever they want to me because I have no way to defend myself. Verses 25-26 reassured me that I have nothing to fear in life because God and Jesus give me everything I want by giving me life.
In verse 26, Jesus says that the most important thing in life is to have a soul because without it, we are dead. Everything we do in life is to live. Either we do things to meet our physical and emotional needs to be physically alive or give us hope to keep living, respectively, or we do things to preserve our individual identity. Our identity gives us the unique life God created as our souls. Whatever motive for doing something, it is to preserve the soul that gives us life.
In verse 25, Jesus promises to give us our soul if we follow Him.
In this case, I know that if I follow Jesus and be Him, I will have everything I want because my goal in life is to preserve my soul. The Almighty God has promised to give me everything I want to achieve my one goal in life – to live.
