What Won’t God Give Us?

“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”

Romans 8:32


Ponder This

If you were to say to me, “Adrian, can I have your son? I want to take your firstborn, Steve,” I would likely ask, “What do you want to do with Steve?” If you replied, “Well, I want to lie about him, beat him, abuse him, strip him naked and nail him to a cross,” I would quickly say, “No! You can’t have my son.”

But suppose I loved you enough for whatever reason I said, “Yes, you can have my son.” And then you said, “And can I have his basketball and his bicycle and his blue jeans?” I’d say, “Are you kidding? If I’d give you my son, do you think I’d withhold the basketball, the bicycle, and the blue jeans?” Friend, “He who spared not His own Son, how shall He not also with Him freely give us all things?” If God gave the first gift, the best gift, everything else comes with Jesus. There is no deprivation in the gift of Christ.

  • When do you have trouble believing God will give you good things?
  • How does the reminder that He has willingly given His Son for your sake change your perspective?

Practice This

Make a list of truly good things you desire and need from God. Take time to meditate on the truth that He has given you His Son and will not withhold any good thing you truly need.
