7 He summoned the Twelve and began to send them out in pairs and gave them authority over unclean spirits. 8 He instructed them to take nothing for the road except a staff—no bread, no traveling bag, no money in their belts, 9 but to wear sandals and not put on an extra shirt. 10 He said to them, “Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that place. 11 If any place does not welcome you or listen to you, when you leave there, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” 12 So they went out and preached that people should repent.13 They drove out many demons, anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.
Jesus sent out His disciples basically empty handed! He’s showing us that having our trust in what we have for ourselves will limit our ability to follow Him in dependence. When we depend fully, He is able to use our words and works.
Is my abundance causing me to trust in my stuff more than I trust in Jesus to provide all I need?
Father, help me depend fully on you today.
