"God didn’t spare his own Son but handed him over ⌞to death⌟ for all of us. So he will also give us everything along with him."
Romans 8:32 GW
The greatest gift ever given to mankind is Jesus Christ the Son of the living God. God knew Jesus is all we need. Plagued by sin and death, the planet desperately needed help and God saw it fit to sent us His only Son despite the disappointment He had after man's rebellion. By eternal measurements Jesus was actually an overpayment for our sins because of the value of that One Man, but God loved us too much to give us the "much more" in Christ Jesus.
I have been around many Christians of various persuasions when it comes to matters of faith and I am still stunned when I remember some who claimed that Jesus alone is not enough. Some Christians have suffered a lot, mostly because of ignorance, and now are disillusioned by their circumstances and cannot see God's plan perfectly. It seems like they have tried and things are not working so they want to seek for more besides Jesus which eventually result in them turning to secular reasoning for answers. What these dear souls miss is that God has finished everything in Christ. God has chosen to have all the fullness dwell in Jesus and in Christ all things consist and hold together. If He was able to give you Jesus, will he not give you healing through Christ? If Christ was delivered to die for us, will He not freely give you food, clothes and shelter. What is greater, God's only Begotten Son and a car? It's obvious, isn't it? When we find Jesus we find everything we will ever need for life and godliness.
So instead of looking for the rest of the gifts you think you need, focus on this one Gift- Jesus. Develop relationship with Him. Get to know who He is through the Word. Listen to Him and learn from and you will find rest for your soul. Once you discover Him, your search will end and your unlimited desires will be fulfilled in Him. He is the "one thing that is needful" (Luke 10:42). Through Jesus, we have access to the gift of the Person of the Holy Spirit who has His own gifts to give as well. Through Christ we have the right to the gift of eternal life and immortality (Romans 6:23). Jesus is everything and everything is in Him. There is no question that has no answer in Jesus and there is no problem without a solution in Christ. The question is can we dare ask Him? Ask and you shall receive. It's that simple for without Him you can do nothing and you can have nothing.
I have Jesus who has everything that I will ever need that pertains to life and godliness.
