The God Who Gives Generously
Scripture 2 Chron 25:9 Then Amaziah said to the man of God, “But what shall we do about the hundred talents which I have given to the troops of Israel?” And the man of God answered, “The LORD is able to give you much more than this.”
Observation: We are so worried about losing what we have in this world without considering what God is offering. God offers us eternal life with Him with a body that will last forever with no more pain or sorrow a life full of joy, but yet we are so concerned for what we have here. We are afraid to use or money to do God’s will, because we are afraid we won’t have enough for us, we worry about the time God has given us to the point we are afraid to use any for the purpose we were created for in the first place. We are so focused on the here and now we don’t see what God has planned for us, more than we could ever imagine or hope for.
Application: I’m part of the we. I worry about money and using my time for rest and to do things that I want to do instead of focusing on what God desires of me. My first priority should always be God and to trust that He will provide for me the way He desires. I need to say Proverbs 3:5, 6 each day until it rings true in my heart, trust in the Lord with all my heart, do not lean on my own understanding, but in all of my ways acknowledge Him and He will make my paths straight.
Prayer: My Lord I believe, help my unbelief. Give me the wisdom and strength to trust in you completely, knowing that you will take care of me the way you desire. I love and trust you my Lord guide me each day so I may be drawn nearer to you.
