God of Abundance, Pt. 1

with one comment

God is a God of abundance. Whether you experience abundance or lack is up to you.

May God give you of heaven’s dew and of earth’s richness—an abundance of grain and new wine.
—Genesis 27:28 NIV

For too long, most people have settled for much less than what God says they can have. They are willing to barely get along, as if God were on a strict budget, or there were some kind of shortage in the heavenly realm. The Bible clearly refutes that idea: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Php 4:19 KJV).

God is a God of abundance! The Creator is “El Shaddai,” the God who is more than enough. Do you believe it? If you truly want to prosper, you must realize that God’s will is for you to walk in abundance in every area of your life—especially in your finances.

And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation].
—2 Corinthians 9:8 AMP

God wants you to have abundance in every situation so that you can always give. Do you have that kind of abundance, or do you lack? What does the Bible say about lack?

Lack Is Destruction

Cartoon by Ramses Morales

You’ve probably heard the saying, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” Actually, according to the Bible, what you don’t know may ruin you. Hosea 4:6 says that God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Lack leads to destruction.

Lack of finances can lead to financial destruction. “The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty” (Pr 10:15 NKJV). Poverty is lack of resources that could be secured with money.

Poverty leads to destruction. And God lets choose between abundance and lack.

Abundance Is a Choice

Before the second-generation Israelites finally entered the Promised Land, Moses delivered some final instructions.

15“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.
17But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.
19This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life ….”
—Deuteronomy 30:15–20 NIV

Moses said, “Today I’m giving you a choice between prosperity and disaster, between life and death.” He told them, “Choose abundance, choose life!”

It seems like the flow of this world tends toward lack and destruction. Yet what you experience in life is up to you. It’s your choice.

Life is a choice.

Blessing is a choice.

Increase is a choice.

Prosperity is a choice.

Abundance is a choice.

What choice will you make?

I’ll share more about God’s abundance next time. Until then, choose life!

God’s Provision in Time of Lack, Pt. 4

without comments

Everyone experiences seasons of lack, times when your personal situation doesn’t provide what you need, or the economy is down. 1 Kings 17:1-16 shares the account of how God sustained the prophet Elijah during a time of drought and famine.

In this series, we’ll examine God’s provision for the faithful during a time of lack.

Elijah relocates to Zarephath

Source: freebibleimages.org

Source: freebibleimages.org

God told Elijah to camp in the wilderness by the Brook Cherith, where ravens daily brought him bread and meat. When the brook dried up because of the drought Elijah had prophesied, God spoke to him a second time to arise, go to Zarephath, and dwell. God had commanded a widow there to provide for him (v. 9). As he had obeyed before, Elijah heeded the word of Spirit.

So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, “Please bring me a little water in a cup, that I may drink.”
—1 Kings 17:10 NKJV

“Zarephath” means “smelting place.” It was a Phoenician seaport on the Mediterranean Sea between Tyre and Sidon. This was a journey of about 100 miles from the Cherith Ravine.

Elijah meets the widow

Once Elijah reached Zarephath he didn’t have to search, for at the very gate of the city he met a woman gathering sticks. She was about her daily business, engaged in an activity that would ultimately lead to her providing for him, and God moved her to be in the right place at the right time for them to meet.

Jesus said, “Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them.” (Lk 12:24a NIV). Like a raven, the woman took advantage of what God provided in the moment. She did the only thing she could do—pick up sticks, meager fuel for a small fire.

Elijah makes requests

Elijah, who had traveled days to the destined place, saw the woman gathering sticks. Did Spirit reveal to him that she was the widow that would provide for him? If not, he took a chance and called to her: “Please bring me a little water to drink.”

In a time of drought, this was a tall order. If she hadn’t been the woman God was working with, she may have refused. But she turned to fetch the water. God chose her because she was hospitable to strangers. She was obedient to the direction Spirit gave her internally.

Seeing her willingness to bring him water, Elijah knew she was the right woman. So he asked her for something more.

11And as she was going to get it, he called to her and said, “Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.”
12So she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.”
—1 Kings 17:11-12 NKJV

Elijah did not ask her for a jug of water and three loaves of bread, only enough to sustain him—an amount that as a widow she could afford. Trained by the ravens, he asked for the moment’s provision, not a month’s board.

The widow reveals her plight

At his request, the woman made an admission. She said, “As the Lord your God lives.” Although no other exchange between them is recorded, she knew Elijah was a man of God, a god not her own, for she was Phoenician, not Hebrew.

The Lord told Elijah that Spirit had already commanded a widow to provide for him (v. 9). Did she hear God speak to her? Had she received a dream about a prophet coming to her? The passage doesn’t say. She was honest about her situation:

  1. She had no bread.
  2. She had only a handful of flour and a little oil.
  3. She was gathering sticks to make a fire.
  4. She planned to bake one last meal for her and her son.
  5. After this, they would have nothing and would likely starve.

Without rain, there is no wheat crop. Without a crop, there is no harvest. Without a harvest, there is no threshing of grain. Without grain, there is nothing to grind into flour. Without flour, there is no bread. And without rain, there is no olive harvest and no oil. These are all results of Elijah proclaiming drought upon the land. Yet God provides for the faithful. Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread” (Matt. 6:11).

Spirit requires faith and action for miracles

And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son.”
—1 Kings 17:13 NKJV

Elijah encouraged her to not fear. She could make that bread for her and her son, but first she must make for him a small cake and bring it to him. If she had only a handful of flour, that cake may have been no bigger than a saltine cracker.

After she had made his cake and brought it to him, she could go back and make her own cake. This allowed time and space for a metaphysical miracle of multiplication to occur. Elijah prophesied

“For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’”
—1 Kings 17:14 NKJV

Elijah prophesied to the woman in the name of a god she did not know. This would require great faith to act on the message.

So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days.
—1 Kings 17:15 NKJV

The widow heeded the prophet’s word, and they all were provided for. She came to know Elijah’s God and Provider.

The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah.
—1 Kings 17:16 NKJV

The word was the Lord’s, which Spirit spoke by Elijah. A true prophetic word has metaphysical power and comes to pass if acted on in faith.

Many ways to hear from Spirit

The woman never said God had spoken to her or commanded her to do anything. Perhaps God had, as He had spoken to Elijah. Perhaps she had a dream, or some intuition that prompted her to believe and act on his word. Perhaps it was her natural hospitality that led her to do it.

There are many ways to hear from Spirit—directly or indirectly. However you hear, God is still able to communicate and move you to do what will bless and benefit your life. But you must act in faith.

You can receive what you need

Even in time of lack, God can provide for your needs. Be like Elijah, be like the ravens, be like the widow, and no matter what the circumstances are, listen and heed, and receive what you need.

There are those who are hungry and crying out to God to have their needs met. But they can’t in their own power fulfill these needs themselves. God wants to use you to feed them. And if you take it upon yourself to minister to them, God will lead you to the sustenance they require and use you to bless them—and you.

I pray this series has built your faith and proved helpful to you.
