Let's imagine that Gerald the Squirrel had somehow missed out on gathering enough acorns for the winter. He has a need of 120 acorns to make it through the winter
Now, his next door neighbor — Supersquirrel — has somehow gathered up 5,000,000 acorns.
So, Gerald the Squirrel goes to Supersquirrel and asks, "Can you help supply my need of acorns for the winter?"
If Supersquirrel supplies Gerald's need
from his riches — he'll take 120 acorns from his collection of 5,000,000.
But, if Supersquirrel supplies Gerald's need
according to his riches — he'll give Gerald thousands and hundreds of thousands and even millions of acorns.
God has promised — through Jesus Christ — to supply our needs
according to His riches in Glory.
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’s Spirit is our unending source of strength. Are you calling on Him today?
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
Suggested Bible Reading
Meditate on Ephesians 3:14-21 today. As you do pray…
We bow before You and we ask…
That You would strengthen us with Your power through the Holy Spirit …
That we would open up every part of our hearts to Jesus…
That we would build our lives on Your love…
That You would fill us with Your fullness.
