2 Corinthians 3:5 – Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.

Sometimes our focus shifts from Christ so severely, we forget how much we need Him. We become caught up in an ideal of self-sufficiency, the idea that we do not need anyone or anything. We go through our lives determined to only need ourselves and to make it on our own. Such a mindset is not only dangerous, it is simply untrue.

We are not self-sufficient creatures. God is our sufficiency, without Him, we would never be enough. In fact, it is His sacrifice on Calvary and His blood atonement that completes us; nothing we have done or could ever do can compare. Our very salvation depends on our reliance on Him.

Do not fall into the self-sufficiency trap. In our own strength, we are not worthy to stand before the King of Kings. Instead, rely on God. Let Him be your righteousness, your salvation, and your sufficiency.
