Jesus Calls Us To HIM first Before He Sends Us OUT

Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness. (Matthew 10:1 NIV)

Jesus called them first to HIM before he sends them OUT to do his will. He knew there was no way they could accomplish their purpose without His equipping and empowerment. He is not a god who sends us on a mission without His provision. He is our faithful God.

He knew it would not be possible for us to claim and walk in victory without giving us the authority over the very things that hinders us (the devil, his demons and sickness). Yet His ultimate provision is not the spiritual or material resources he gives to accomplish the job he sends us to carry out; His ultimate provision is the very relationship we can have with Him through Christ's finished work on the cross. His ultimate provision is Himself.

Are you in need today?
He has already provided for you at the cross.
