1 Corinthians 15:10 “…I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me”
When you wake up in the morning do you think about all the demands that you have for the day? Are you stressed out about an upcoming meeting? How about that big project you’re working on? Is your mind racing about all that needs done? Are you feeling pressured and overwhelmed and exhausted?
If your answer is yes to any of the above, you are “demand minded”. You’re depending on you-you-you. You see, grace is all about supply, and the Law is all about demand. God wants us to be supply minded not demand minded.
Being supply minded is all about what Jesus is doing in and through you. It’s about His power, His supply. In 1 Corinthians 15:10 Paul says “I labored more abundantly than they all...” If he stopped there, it would be all about stress and pressure and demand. But thank God he didn’t stop there. He went on to say “yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me”! Not only does Jesus give you the grace to do what He has told you to do, He also rewards you for using the grace that He gave you.
So today, I want you to stop and ask yourself, “Am I supply minded or demand minded?” Then ask the Lord, “What have I been doing in my own strength?” When He shows you, quickly say “Lord, I turn these things over to you right now”. Then rest, and be confident in His inexhaustible supply of grace within you to do all that He’s called you to do.
