"He who spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things." Rom. 8:32. We can often feel that we do not have enough. We may feel we don't have enough love, or strength, or provision, daily bread, etc. Romans 8:32 tells us that if we have Christ in our life, we will always have enough, because God will give freely give all things with Him. Watching Jesus in action in the gospels, we see Him take 5 loaves and 2 fish, and feed over 5000 people. Philip and the disciples felt they did not have enough. But they saw that when you give the little you have to Him, that He can multiply it over and over, so that there is enough. There are several other stories in the Bible where the miracle of multiplication occurred. In 1 Kings 17 the widow of Zarephath had her flour and oil multiplied as she honored Elijah by making him a cake first. Her bin of flour and jar of oil did not run dry for 3 years and 6 months. In 2 Kings 4 the widow's jar of oil was poured out into borrowed vessels until the vessels were full. The oil was sold to pay her debts to the creditor. Also in 2 Kings 4, 20 loaves of barley bread fed 100 men under Elisha's ministry. In each case, there was something offered to God, and it was taken and multiplied. The New Testament shows us the miracle of multiplication is available to us also. In 2 Cor. 9:8 Paul says that God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 11 Cor. 9:10 says, "Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness." God will supply and multiply the seed we have sown. We will see the miracle of multiplication as we sow our seed. As we bring what we have, and offer it to the Lord, He will multiply it, which causes us to thank Him all the more. His grace is sufficient! He is enough! When we have Him, we have enough! I can confidently say, that I have enough, because I have Him. What do you have in your house? What do you have in your hand? Offer it to Him, and you will have enough!
Do I realize that I have enough?
