Give the little that you have and God will give you abundance.
Sometimes we wonder why God wants the little that we have. The little that we have, but He wants us to give it to Him. Nomatter how little, if we give it to Him, He will multiply it for us. He wants the little that we have, the last that we have, to know if we will trust Him. Trust Him with the small talent. Trust Him with what you have that you think looks insignificant.
“Like the stick in Moses’s hands. Like the two fishes and five loaves Jesus had. Like the handful of flour and the Little jar of oil from the widow in Elijah’s time.”
God wants the very little that we have. The last that we have. Will we be faithful to give it to Him? Will we be faithful to say Here Lord, this is all i have , but take it. I trust that you will blow my mind with the very little. I trust that you will make a way out of no way. I know this is my last but i give it to you, because I trust you. You are faithful.
Luke 16:10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.
This may not refer to money, it may be anything little we have that we feel cannot make a difference, but God wants to use what we have. Its the little we have that God will increase to blow our minds. Can we be trusted to handle the little that He has given us?
In 1 kings 17: 8 God told Elijah to go to Zerapeth and has commanded a widow there to provide for Elijah.
But when Elijah got there and met the widow and asked the widow for food she replied;
1 kings 17:12
“As the LORD your God lives, i do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin , and a little oil in a jar ;and see I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for my self and my son, that we may eat it and die.
Now that was the widows last. The very little that she had. She either had to hold on to the little that she had,or give the little that she had for God to bless her in abundance. She could have held on to the little that she had and not trusted God with it. But she trusted God with her very little. Not knowing whether what Elijah spoke will happen, but she still took the bold step. She gave away the very little . She had FAITH.
This was Elijah’s reply to her;
1 kings 17:13
Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. 14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’”
faith is substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
God wants us to use the little that we have now. The little that we feel is insignificant. He wants us to step out with it. The idea that everyone looks down on. The idea that we feel is insignificant. He wants us to use it for His glory. Whether we feel we don’t have enough , or we don’t have it all together, He wants to use us. When we pray and give Him those ideas , gifts, He will multiply it.
look what happened when the widow had faith and gave the very little she had; God did as He promised.
1 Kings 17-15,26
15 So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days.16 There was always enough flour and olive oil left in the containers, just as the Lord had promised through Elijah.
What is the very little that we have but feel is insignificant? That idea? The gift that nobody notices? God wants to use it.
Glory be to God🙌🏾
