It’s Not Over

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us.
Ephesians 3:20

The Shunammite woman and her husband were very generous and showed kindness to the prophet, Elisha. Although she was a wealthy woman, she was childless. In  2 Kings 4:16, Elisha called her one day and told her that she would have a son. She had a son the following year, just as Elisha had said. Some years later, the boy died suddenly, but she rushed to Elisha and he miraculously revived him.

You may need or desire something that money cannot buy. Only God knows about the secret desires of your heart, and the things you really want. Be generous in giving God your time, money, talents, and other resources. Then watch Him give you the things that money cannot buy.

No need to worry and begin to fret,
But believe that it’s not over yet.

Forgetting

The second son he named Ephraim and said,
“It is because God has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.”
Genesis 41:52 (NIV)

Joseph named his first son Manasseh, which means, forgetting. He said that God had made up to him all the anguish that he had suffered and the loss of his father’s house. Then Joseph named his second son Ephraim, because he said, “God has made me fruitful in this land of my grief.” The land that was the source of his greatest pain and misery was now the place that God was using to bless him and make him a powerful administrator.

Can God possibly use the very thing that was your greatest source of pain and suffering to bless you in your new beginning? Yes, He can. With God all things are possible! Allow Him to show you how you can turn your pain into your divine purpose.

For the Bible says that you can do,
All things through Christ who strengthens you.

All You Need

In II Kings 8, the Shunammite woman and her husband blessed the prophet, Elisha. God, in return, blessed them not only with a son, but also in settling a great legal matter.  In similar ways, God will supply your needs when you walk according to His Word and use wisely the resources He gives you.

Regardless of what your needs are, Ephesians 3:20 says, God “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Trust Him to provide all that you need today.

He will supply all that I need,
When I trust Him and believe.

Praise God

We should praise God for His goodness and for the blessings that He has given us. We should also praise Him because He is God, the creator of the entire universe.

In Psalm 150, David wrote about the many different ways in which we can praise God. We can praise God with words of honor and devotion, in a song, on an instrument, or even in a dance. Find a way to praise God and demonstrate the love, trust, and reverence that you have in your heart for Him today.

Problems will come in so many ways,
But don’t let them stop or hinder your praise.

Your Help

When Hagar had nowhere to go and no one to turn to for help, God sent her help in a miraculous way. He said in Isaiah 54:5 (NLT), “For your Creator will be your husband.” God can take care of a mother when she puts her trust in Him.

If you have nowhere to go and no one to turn to for help, ask God to send you help in a miraculous way. As a child of God Almighty, you can boldly approach the throne of grace and cast your cares upon Him. He will help you when you put your trust in Him.

Don’t be discouraged, but understand,
That no one can love you like God can.

Walk by Faith

When we read about how the disciples walked with Jesus, it is hard to imagine them ever being fearful or faithless. They saw Jesus’ many miracles and heard His awesome teachings on a daily basis. Yet, at times, Jesus had to remind them of their little faith.

Sometimes you will have to walk by faith, even when you cannot see how something could possibly happen. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:7, “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” As you walk into your new beginning, believe that God is planning His best for you, even when you cannot see it. Go forward in faith, knowing that He will give you victory in the problems that you face as you begin again.

And trust God to make everything alright,
When you walk by faith and not by sight.
