Jesus asked, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” (Lk 22:35) He wants His followers to live without fear of lack by taking our eyes off our own purse and putting them on Him. Jesus wants us to walk in the same liberty He walked in on earth: to know that no matter if we’re at the end of our own resources, He is there padding our heavenly purse with gifts according to the generosity of the King of Kings. “Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ.” (Rom. 8:17) He wants us to simply know that we know that we know that His grace is sufficient and abundant at all times:
“And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].” 2 Co. 9:8 AMP
Rick Joyner writes that grace is the most powerful thing in the universe. When we are clothed in the mantle of grace it shows we are sons and daughters of the King—the dread champions who prevail against every power of darkness. We only have true strength to the degree we abide with the King in all His grace. It is the same mantle that clothed Jesus, Who in the days of His flesh said, “By myself I can do nothing.” Jesus was poor in spirit, and therefore the Kingdom of God belonged to Him. The same is true of us; when we grasp a correct understanding of what it means to be poor in spirit and identify ourselves as buried yet seated with the risen Christ, we come to a place where all things are possible. In spite of our weakness, all that He has is ours!
