More Than Enough

11259962865_950a3ee05c

 

Ephesians 3:20- “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us…”

Sufficient

Ample

Plenty

Adequate

These words mean “just enough.”

Enough food to feed the family.

Enough money to pay the grocery bill.

Enough light to read by.

Enough gas in the tank.

And that’s fine for most things.

But, what if you could have an abundance?

Ephesians tells us that God isn’t the God of “just enough”—He is able to supply more than what we think we need… more than we ask for or imagine.

He’s the God of Abundance.

The God of Overflowing.

He’s the God of “more than enough.”

Our Loaves and Fishes

Philippians 2:13- “For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.” (Amplified NT)

 

“I can’t do it as well as he does.

I’m not as talented.

I’m not smart enough.

I don’t have the necessary skills.     4739074036_740ba846b7

I’m not good at public speaking.

I’m just not athletic.

I’m too short…too homely…too introverted…”

There are lots of excuses NOT to do what God has called us to do.

But, God tells us that in our weakness, he will be our strength.

If he has called us to do something, he will equip us.

Nothing can thwart us. Nothing can triumph against us.

Like the boy with the five loaves and fishes, we simply need to show up and offer what we have.

He’ll use it, multiply it, expound on it, magnify it, and be glorified through it.

In His hands, our scarcity becomes His abundance.
