Everything the Father Has.

John 16:15 (NKJV) All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

Shortly before He was arrested and crucified, Jesus made the above statement to His disciples. Jesus said His Father would take everything He had and declare it to His followers. That is exactly what happened when He was crucified. He gave us His righteousness, His wisdom, and even His health.

The Bible says in Matthew 26:26, "And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is My body." This Scripture comes from the New Testament. The New Testament was originally written in Greek. The Greek word translated to, body, comes from a Greek word pronounced, so-mah. According to Strong's Greek Dictionary, the word comes from the root word, sozo. Sozo means absolutely complete (1). What Jesus said was the bread represented all of Him---the complete physical, spiritual, and emotional Him.

Jesus was ridiculed, beaten, and even gave up His spirit for us (2). He suffered physical, emotional, and spiritual brokenness. He even became poor (3). The Father took everything Jesus had---everything, and Jesus lacked nothing. Our heavenly Father has declared it ours.

So the next time you have a need, ask yourself; did Jesus have it? If He did, then the Father has declared it yours. Believe it and receive it. If you have trouble believing it, get connected to God and get to know Him personally by breaking bread, remembering what it means. Commune with Him regularly. He is always with you. As you commune with Him, He will reveal Himself and you will experience His loving-kindness.

As you begin to realize His love for you---and the reality of His presence---you will believe and receive.

Be blessed!
