The Self-sufficiency of God

   Teach us , O God that nothing is necessary to Thee. Were anything necessary to Thee, that thing would be the measure of Thine imperfection; and how could we worship one who is imperfect ? If nothing is necessary to Thee, and if no one , then not we. Thou dost seek through. Thou dost not need us. We seek Thee because we need Thee, for in Thee we live and move and have our being. Amen. A prayer from AW Tozer

   Some of his thoughts along with mine. The Father has life in Himself, said our Lord, it is in JESUS teachings. And the brief statement sets forth truth so lofty as to transcend the highest reaches of human thought .

   The Father has life in Himself, said the Lord, in that little statement, sets forth , truth so lofty as to transcend the highest reaches of the human though. Nothing can proceed Him and He needs nothing, He is what He is in Himself, and we so need to be plugged into this vastness of our God.

   No creature has life in itself, all life is the greatest gift form Him. There is no other way to obtain that gift of God but though Him.

   To say He has done something wrong or thought wrong, would mean thatvHe is not self-sufficient. Because all life is a gift from God. So we can’t receive nothing that He has not first given. Nothing is complete in and of itself but requires something outside itself in order to exist. For example to remove air and food to any organism it would die. So all things need God, and to God alone nothing is necessary.

   As we build a house to provide shelter, or plant things for food to survive . Our awesome God needs nothing but out of His love for mankind, He gives all !!
