“All God Has To Give” (Romans 8: 32, NEB) by Carley Evans

“[God] does not spare His own Son, but gives Him up for us all; and with this gift how can He fail to lavish upon us all He has to give?”

God is generous. He desires to “lavish upon us all He has.” He holds back nothing from us; all that He gives to us is His best. Nothing is too good for those of us He loves; for He gives His ultimate in His Son’s death and resurrection. And if He is willing to give His very Son, how can He not give us all else? I am convinced that God gives generously, without reproach.

The gift I covet is the gift of wisdom. James tells us to ask God for wisdom when we find ourselves short of it. If we know God gives without hesitation, then we gain the wisdom we desire. All we need do is believe in God’s willingness to give. We must not ask and then doubt; for both the gift and the One who gives it are ours even before we ask.

Take all God has to give.
