Insight and Highlight
If God is asking you to give Him something, it is because He knows you have it.
God cannot lack, He cannot be exhausted or run dry, Psalm 50:9-13. He is all-sufficient. He is more than enough to adequately supply all the needs of His creation.
Whatever He needs, He already created. If ever He needed anything, He will create it, John 1:3.
Until He gave Isaac to Abraham, He did not ask for his sacrifice, Gen 22:2.
He did not ask for the sacrifice of the ram whose horns were locked in the thickets until He provided it for Abraham, Gen 22:13.
A lesson from the life of Abraham illustrates God will never ask from you what He has not given to you.
There is no excuse for not giving God what He is asking from you.
Do not hold back what God requested from you because He knows you have it.
2 Corinthians 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
Call to Word action
2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
The Christian clarion duty
2 Cor 8:11 Now, therefore, perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have.
Lord give me the Spirit of a willing mind to cheerfully give You out of what You have given me, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
