Everything You Need
Vance Havner spoke about a believer who understood that God owns us and everything we have. The believer had an argument with Satan. Satan threatened to take away everything he had. The believer opined that would be fine because he didn*t have anything because everything he had belonged to God. Then Satan threatened to see to it he never got anything. The believer then replied that that would be fine too because in Christ he already had everything. Satan could not win an argument with that believer and He shouldn*t be able to win one with us.
