Needing Nothing

“For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing. “ James 1:3-4

Don’t you long for the day when you feel like you need nothing?  It always seems like there is something that we need… groceries, a pair of shoes, a new car, a hair cut… whatever it is, there is always something lingering just beyond our reach.

There will come a day when, after our endurance has come to full development, we will desire nothing.  All our needs will be met as we will be content in all situations… content fully in the Lord’s provisions.  What a glorious day it will be when we in perfect contentment.

Father God, Until we are perfectly complete, continue to grow us and strengthen our faith so that we desire nothing but You.  Remove from us the desires of this world.  In Jesus’ Name.  Amen.
