When God filled the earth with creation, he provided everything necessary for living. He provided a life of comfort for Adam. Everything Adam needed to enjoy life and be comfortable was provided. Likewise, God has made adequate provision and has given precious promises by which every believer can receive and enjoy the best of life on earth. This means that by recognizing a need in your life, you can obtain every good thing God has promised you!
Has life ever been difficult for you? so much so that it prevents you from making progress? You frequently come to terms with this life and persuade yourself to persevere through it. You do not need to endure a life below the standard that God has provided for you. As a believer, you have the power and capacity to live a good life and have everything you desire. This is God’s promise to you. Christ also suffered and died for this purpose.
