What Has God Said About You? (3).

5 Jun

‘…In all things at all times, having all that you need…’ 2 Corinthians 9:8

When God tells you to give of your finances in order to fulfil someone else’s vision, you must realise:

1) He’s testing your faith and your willingness to obey in difficult circumstances.

When Elijah the prophet asked a widow to share her last meal with him, the timing seemed strange. There was a famine in the land and people were dying. Who would have blamed her for saying no? But by putting God’s interests before her own, she connected herself to a divine, unending source of supply.

The Bible says: ‘Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will also reap generously …God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work’ (vv. 6-8 NIV). 2)

He’s giving you an opportunity to sow into another’s life and reap in your own. We love to quote, ‘My God will meet all your needs…’ (Philippians 4:19 NIV), but do you remember who this promise was made to? It was written to those who supported Paul’s ministry. ‘When I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid again and again, when I was in need’ (vv. 15-16 NIV).

Then Paul added these words: ‘My God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.’

When you give, you invest in an account you can draw on when you have a need yourself.
