God does nothing half-heartedly

To see the generous nature of God we don’t have to go any further than the very first chapter of the first book of the Bible. God created the heavens and the earth. He could have created it just large enough so that it would go as far as we could see. We can see about 1000 to 3000 stars on a clear night in this area but God created 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars (I’m not even sure how to say that). Earth is part of the Milky Way galaxy but it is one in an array of hundreds of billions of galaxies in the universe. God “is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think” (Eph 3:20). He is not a stingy God. His creation is simple evidence of his abundant generosity.

Think of the example in Matthew 14 when Jesus feeds the 5000 (plus women and children) with 5 loaves and 2 fish. When everyone had eaten and were satisfied there were 12 leftover full baskets. He did far more abundantly than was necessary. The Message paraphrase says, “God can do anything, you know – far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!”

The Salvation offered to us by Jesus Christ is a finished work, not half-hearted effort. “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7 – As forgiven children of God, saved and sealed for redemption, God cleanses us from all sin. On the cross, Jesus said, “It is finished” John 19:30. He did not say, “I’ve done my part – now they can work their way to heaven.”

IF God creates a universe billions of times larger than we can see or imagine, how much more will HE make provision for your needs beyond what you imagine or think?
What difficulty are you facing today? God is not holding out on you. He desires to bless you beyond what you can imagine or think.

Is God enough for your problems? Are you believing and asking for great things from a Great God?

He desires to bless you beyond anything you know, not with material things but with Himself. Will you receive Him?

Think About This: We may not say that we have the answers. Questions of how to conduct oneself as a Christian, or how to serve as a Christian, must be answered by life itself- the life of the individual in his direct responsible relationship to God.” – Elisabeth Elliot
