TEXT : JOEL 2 VS 24; PSALM 23 VS 5; MALACHI 3 VS 10, LUKE 6 VS 38.
As we all know that our God is a God of more than enough Jehovah Elshaddai.
Often than not, whenever He does a thing, He always does it far beyond our expectations and most cases in excess that you begin to wonder why the wastage.
He does not like wastage, but always wanting you to know that He is always in control of all situations and there is nothing too difficult for Him to do.
Things that we see, that looks not in any way sufficient, He is able to make it in excess, as He is able to call those things that were not as if they were. Rom 4 vs. 17. God made the man Abraham, that has no child at all, a father of many nations. That can only be through His mighty hand.
We have more and more examples in the Bible, and even we hear and see testimonies that all we can say and conclude is that it can only be God.
We read about the passage of the Israelites in the wilderness Deu 2 vs 6-7, for about forty years, and God fed them both with, bread, meat and sufficient water, not only that, their clothing was well sorted out and they never outgrow their shoes in the wilderness, even they had money to buy food and water when there was need for it. What a miraculous God.
In 1Kings 17 vs 6 – 16. Elijah was continually fed by a raven in the time of famine.
In 1Kings 19 vs 6. Elijah was fed by an Angel in the wilderness.
The prophet’s widow in 2kings 4 vs 6, was known as an oil merchant in the season of acute lack.
In the time when dove’s dung was sold for silver, and people were boiling their children for food. God declared, an abundance of food the next day that was ridiculously unbelievable, but He did it anyway.2 Kings 6 and 7.
Even looking at the New Testament, in Mattew 14 vs 16-21. Jesus also declared surplus and abundance when He fed 5000 men, besides woman and children with only five loaves, and two fishes, and not only that, they had 12 baskets left as excess.
The God of this entire doings is still alive, He does not change and does not lie. His word is Yea and Amen.2 Corinthians 1vs 20.
He has the promise in Philippians 4 vs 19. for those of His children.
There is nothing good lacking in your life that the Almighty is not able to make abundant at any time and make it available for our pleasure.
Ephesians 3 vs 20. Now unto Him, that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
You can only limit His supplies for your need by your faith and actions, but there is nothing that He cannot do.
Jeremiah 32 vs 27, declare His word for us that, He is the God of all flesh and there is nothing that is too difficult for Him to do.
I encourage you to key into this season of His superabundance and begin to enjoy all His goodness and favour in your life in Jesus name.
His abundant provisions are not limited to material things alone, but also to the Spiritual things and in a nutshell, your total well being. 3John 2.
I can’t wait to hear your testimonies very shortly and mine also in Jesus name. Amen
