This is your B moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: 2 Corinthian 9:10 (ESV)
Today I am reminding you that God’s very nature is one of a multiplier such that there are leftovers. This is, of course, in the spirit of Thanksgiving as there are often many leftovers on this holiday.
When we turn to the Scriptures and think of an example of when God multiplied something, we will likely recall when Jesus took five loaves of bread and two fish and multiplied them to feed 5,000 people. We may also recall that there were even bags of leftovers.
I see a similar pattern in the Old Testament. One day, a man approached the prophet Elisha to give him bread of the first fruits. When the man gave Elisha the bread, Elisha told him to instead give it to the men so they could eat.
Yet the man said, “How can I set this little amount before 100 men?” Elisha’s reply was simply, “Give it to the men that they may eat, thus says the Lord.” He went on to say, “In fact, they shall eat and have some left.”
We see that it is God’s very nature to take what you have and to multiply it such that it not only meets your needs, but so that there is a surplus too. If you have fears today about not having enough or not being enough, release your fears into the hands of God and be comforted by the fact that you serve a God whose very nature is to multiply what you have.
As you savor that, remember these words:
“He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness ” 2 Corinthians 9:10 (ESV)
