God is All You Need (whether you know it or not)

I was intrigued by this statement a few weeks ago: “you’ll never know God is all you need until He is all you have.”

Am I the only person that thinks this is false?  For many people the reality of God’s sufficiency will become clear in a moment of crisis.  However, it is possible to know that God is sufficient by simple faith.

At the moment of salvation you have completely trusted that God is all you need.  If you still need another moment of crisis to prove His sufficiency, then I wonder about your initial conversion.

One thought on “God is All You Need (whether you know it or not)”

  1. been reading “Radical” by David Platt and he debunked another pithy, bible sounding saying “God hates the sin, but loves the sinner!” We have to be careful to line up the things we say and hear with the Word and be prepared to act accordingly. BTW, can’t wait to hear Platt at the 9Marks seminar at SEBTS.
