Apostle Grace Lubega
John 1:16(KJV); And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
One day, years ago, before I received the full revelation of what Christ did at Calvary, I asked the Lord to anoint me for a service before I could minister to the people. The Lord told me never to ask Him to anoint me but rather to meditate on what He has already done in me.
I have learnt and lived with the principle over the years that everything a child of God will ever need for ministry, growth and success is inside you.
God in His infinite wisdom placed the world in your heart that you will never need to go outside the treasures in you to find purpose and fulfilment.
But how often do people assume that what is within them is insufficient? They seek God from the point of insufficiency, they give to the work of the gospel from the point of insufficiency and they serve in ministry with the same attitude.
Our theme scripture does not say that we received half so that we can seek Him for the other half. It does not say that when God gave to us, He only gave us in part so that we spend the rest of our lives figuring out where the other part should come from. Rather, He said, “OF HIS FULLNESS HAVE WE RECEIVED.”
Whatever you need is available, not in half measures but in fullness. Arise to this consciousness and live life as one who is full, overflowing and coming short in nothing.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this knowledge. When I received Christ and embraced His grace, I received His fullness. I minister, serve, pray and worship in the fullness of God. Because my life is of fullness, I am a blessing to my generation and the generations to come. To the glory of your name, Amen.
