Gadget Man

By Andrea Merrell

By his divine power, God has given us
everything we need for living a godly life.
2 Peter 1:3 NLT

My husband has a new toy … I mean gadget. It’s a large plastic gun that shoots salt—yes, I said salt—and kills flies and other small insects. The amazing part is that it really works.

Charlie loves gadgets. He has almost every tool imaginable, plus a variety of grills, smokers, and other cooking utensils. His other devices include a plethora of electronics, car parts, building material, and some items that leave me clueless. He has a hard time throwing anything away because we might “need it” twenty years down the road. He always wants to be prepared and has most everything that pertains to anything.

This reminds me of one of my favorite Scriptures that tells us God has fully armed us by giving us everything we need for living a godly life. That means there is nothing lacking. It seems that, just like Charlie wants to be prepared, God has made a way for all of us to be prepared for whatever life throws at us—whether tomorrow or twenty years down the road.

You might not think of them as gadgets, but God has equipped us with love, joy, peace, forgiveness, compassion, faith, strength, healing, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, skill, talents, abilities, creativity, and favor. The list goes on and on.

If you feel lacking in any area, ask God to show you the wonderful gifts He offers His children. All you have to do is receive.
