Always in Abundant Supply

Jesus Christ is all-sufficient to meet our every need, but if He is going to meet our needs we must be willing to recognize our needs and call upon Him. There must be a turning to Him for help. He can supply every spiritual need we face in life if we respond to His abiding presence.

At the feeding of the five thousand Jesus provided food in abundance, and it is always that way with God (Matt. 14:15-21Mk. 6:33-44Lk. 9:12-17Jn. 6:1-15). The interesting thing is Jesus initiated the feeding of the people. He knew in advance that He was going to meet their need. He was interested in their welfare. He was able to do it.

What is your attitude toward being fed by God? Do you feed upon Him?

God never ceases granting our petitions until we cease asking. True, He does not always answer the way we would choose, but it is always with our very best in His mind. I thank God that He has not always granted my requests from my selfish, ignorant perspective. He often says no, in order to give me His very best.

Jesus is ever coming to bankrupt sinners and placing His hand on the bank draft of heaven and says to us, “Write on it what you need.”

We have so little faith in things unseen and eternal. We draw so little on the resources of our heavenly Intercessor. “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.”

Have you humbly asked God to supply your needs from His all-sufficiency? He is able. Jesus tells us He is always willing to fill our empty buckets.

The wise person recognizes his need and asks God to meet every need as it arises.

God has not forgotten where you are. He is fully aware of your need and He is vitally concerned about your Christian life. He will supply all your need according to His abundant resources in accordance with His eternal purpose.

How do the circumstances of your life fit into His will? Is He not committed to your very best? Does He not see the full span of your life and your current life situation?

Has God forgotten you? Indeed not.

He does not base His giving on our merits, yet He invites us to come to Him again and again. His abundant supply never runs out.

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).Selah!

A Prayer to Speak with Love and Respect

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: Oh Jehovah KalEl (voice of God Isaiah 30:21 ) please bless me with the ability to communicate with those You have placed in my care in a manner in which they will understand what I am saying.

Just as important Poppa, please bless me with the ability to understand what they are trying to communicate with me.

Please my Beloved bless me that You will guide my words this day to bring encouragement, comfort, assurance and love.

Please strengthen me to bite my tongue to not lash out with hurtful words when disputes erupt.

When the fires start to flare when they are being stubborn and obstinate, please bless me to close my eyes and to call out unto You to bring peace into the conversation.

And, with the wisdom to know when to walk away because of the futility in the conversation.

Please bless me with the ability to come back later and speak with respectful authority to which they must succumb to. Or, with the wisdom to just walk away and let them suffer the consequence for their stubbornness.

Please bless us to be loving and respectful towards each other as You and I are loving and respectful towards each other.

I humbly request this in the name of He whose speech was always respectful and loving Jesus Christ. Amen

Unlocks the Fullness of Life.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”  Melody Beattie

All of Grace

Grace—what a sweet fragrance. It is the greatest theme in the Bible.

Abounding grace, wondrous grace, boundless grace, fountain of grace, unfailing grace, unmeasurable grace, electing grace, matchless grace, overflowing grace, redeeming grace, pardoning grace, plenteous grace, unfailing grace, fullness of grace, efficacious grace, magnified grace, refreshing grace, sovereign grace, and salvation by grace, grace rich and free!

“Oh to grace, how great a debtor.”

God is exceedingly gracious to sinful man. Grace is the unmerited and undeserved favor of a holy God upon sinful depraved human beings. It is His kindness, love and nature to be gracious to humanity.

Grace is the very opposite of merit. It is totally undeserved favor of God toward the sinner. However, it is more than that, it is favor shown to the one who has deserved the very opposite.

What better definition of grace can you find than that expressed by the apostle Paul in Romans 5:8? “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

In contrast to contemporary man’s thinking, God does not owe sinful man anything. Every blessing humanity enjoys is the result of God’s “common grace.”

Every person is a recipient of God’s “common grace” whether he acknowledges it or not. However, “common grace” saves no one, and it never has. We need “special grace” to be saved.

“Saving grace,” on the other hand, redeems sinful man for time and eternity.

The apostle Paul tells us that no matter how great our sin, the grace of God is proven greater. “The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 5:20-21).

“Sin increased,” actual transgressions increased, but “grace abounded all the more.” More grace added to this super abundance of grace. Grace was added to more grace, over and above the grace that super abounded, with even more grace added to that!

“Oh, to grace how great a debtor”!

Do you need grace? Come to the fountain of super abounding, flooding grace!

All the Law can do is point its finger and say, “You are guilty!” It condemns sinful man. It shows sin for what it is in the eyes of God.

However, God has more than an abundant supply of grace. There was plenty of sin, but much, much more grace in superabundance. There is victory for the sinner in grace.

This superabundant grace replaces the reign of sin. We do not have the power to break free from sin, therefore it reigns and we cannot escape the penalty of death. “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23).

However, God’s grace reigns through the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Yes, grace triumphs when God imputes His righteousness and gives eternal life to the sinner who believes on the saving death of Jesus Christ to save him (Jn. 3:161 Pet. 1:18-19Rom. 5:6810:9-10138:15:1-22 Cor. 5:21).

God is gracious.

What is your response to God’s saving grace? Your eternal destiny depends upon your response to His saving grace. Christ died for you so that “whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The great preacher of grace, John Newton, wrote:

“Amazing grace! How sweet the sound

            That saved a wretch like me!

I once was lost, but now am found,  

            Was blind, but now I see.”

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.”

Selah!

A Prayer for Caregivers

May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Romans 15:5 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation

Prayer: My Beloved Jehovah Jireth (Genesis 22:14 The LORD Shall Provide) , I humbly beseech You to bless me this day with abundance provision of patience.

Every days calling upon my body, mind and spirit are great.

Patience is a virtue which only You can pour out upon me as rain is poured out upon the parched land.

No matter the difficult task nor the wearing of my patience by those in my care please bless me with Your Divine patience.

Every day the load placed upon the caretakers shoulder is heavy and demanding. It can only be accomplished by Your Divine patience, wisdom, peace and strength.

I believe You will bless me all that is required to excel at these demanding tasks this day, but especially with patience.

May I be as patient with those in my care this day as You are with me every day.

I humbly beseech You and thank You for granting my petition in the name of He who excelled in patience with His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen
