According to His Riches

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21

 

 

Imagine that Gerald the Squirrel has somehow not gathered enough acorns for the winter. He needs 120 acorns to make it through the winter.

 

Now, his next door neighbor, Super Squirrel,has somehow stored up 5,000,000 acorns.

 

So, Gerald the Squirrel goes to Super Squirrel and asks, "Can you help supply my need of acorns for the winter?"

 

If Super Squirrel supplies Gerald's need from his riches, he'll give 120 acorns from his collection of 5,000,000 acorns to Gerald.

 

But, if Super Squirrel supplies Gerald's need according to his riches, he'll give Gerald thousands and hundreds of thousands and even millions of acorns. 

 

The Bible says that God will supply all of our needs – not from His riches, but according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

 

One believer wrote: Lord, I crawled across the bareness to You with my empty cup, uncertain in asking any small drop of refreshment. If only I had known You better, I'd have come running with a bucket! 

 

God is not stingy!  Trust His promise that He is able to do so much more than we can even ask or think to meet our needs!

 

Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
