Today, we have enough. We do. In this day, we have enough.

Whatever it is that we are facing, that we are needing, that we have to have, we have enough.

Today, we do. Through Jesus Christ and His power and His spirit, we have enough.

No matter how daunting the path make look, no matter how challenging it may be, no matter what we are going through, today, we have enough.

Even if it looks like we don’t. We do. Listen to what happens today in 1 Kings 17:12-16:

And she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I have nothing baked, only a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. And now I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it and die.” And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said. But first make me a little cake of it and bring it to me, and afterward make something for yourself and your son. For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘The jar of flour shall not be spent, and the jug of oil shall not be empty, until the day that the Lord sends rain upon the earth.'” And she went and did as Elijah said. And she and he and her household ate for many days. The jar of flour was not spent, neither did the jug of oil become empty, according to the word of the Lord that he spoke by Elijah.

Elijah comes to the widow. And he asks her to do something that is impossible. He asks her to give to feed him with the little oil and flour that she had left. She said, I don’t have enough.

Elijah knew that she did. She had enough. She had all that she needed. She had enough to feed him, and her son.

Because through God, all things are possible. Through God, there is more than enough.

Today you have enough grace.




God can do it through you. Whatever it is. You can do it. Through Jesus Christ.

Have faith.

God can do it through you. Today, you have enough. No matter how high the mountain. You have enough. Trust in Him. He can do it.

He has give you grace. And that’s enough!

Don’t Settle for Crumbs

Today, we ready the story of Jesus feeding the 4000. Jesus actually feeds a lot people in ministry. Here, He feeds the 4000. Elsewhere in Scripture, He feeds that 5000. There are lots of folks that get fed by Jesus in the Bible.

And, when we look at this story, we could look at it in so many different ways. We can see so many different things. That’s the beauty of the Bible, to me, we can read the same passage over and over again, and have the Holy Spirit reveal something different every time.  Listen to what we hear in Matthew 15:34-38:

And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven, and a few small fish.” And directing the crowd to sit down on the ground, he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over. Those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children.

Today, as I was reading this passage what struck me was the amount of food that was left over.

This meal started with 7 loaves and some fish. That’s not much. And look what is left. Seven baskets.

So, 7 loaves (and fish) turns into 7 baskets. Wow. that’s amazing.

And that’s what God does for you. And for me. He gives us more than enough.

He takes care of our needs, in ways that we don’t even this is possible.

Even if it doesn’t look like it. When they were hungry and waiting, the people probably just would have settle for crumbs.

Instead, Jesus wanted to give them a feast. He wanted them to have not just enough. He wanted them to have an abundance. So does He for you today.

Maybe it’s not an abundance of possessions (and it’s probably not!) but an abundance of grace. Of love. Of mercy. Of forgiveness. Of service.

Of life.

Today, God wants the best for you. He wants you to really and truly live.

But, just like in the text, that life flows only from Jesus. Today, feast on His goodness and mercy.

Don’t settle for crumbs. Seize His life. And life in abundance He has for you!
