HE FILLS OUR POT
2 Corinthians 9:10-11 “Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”
The Scene: A full pot of food–symbolic of the needs of God’s children being fulfilled. God fills their pots/pans (meets their needs).*
*Only those who are willing to listen to God, through His Holy Spirit, and do what He says to do, may claim God’s promises in His Word. James 1:22,25 ” Do not merely listen to the Word, and so deceive yourselves, Do what it says. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it–he will be blessed in what he does.”
And from that full pot others may be blessed as well by the generosity of the giver, who has been given“more than enough.”
Luke 12:48 “but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of flogging, will receive but few. And from everyone who has been given much shall much be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more. (NASB)
In this way we can be witnesses (testifiers) to how blessed we really are; and so others may learn from us the ways of the Lord. He is our provider (Jehovah Jireh). We, in turn, are blessed because we share what the Lord has given us.
We can rest assured that we cannot outgive our God. Mighty and strong is He!
