February 7, 2018: His incomparable riches

Ephesians 2:7 (NIV)
7  in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.

Have you exhausted all your resources?  Are you at the end of your rope without knot to tie onto?  Have you spent your last bit of energy trying ot conjure up something you no longer have?  Then lift up your head and shout aloud for your God has riches beyond measure.  He will dispense these riches to your account if you only ask him.  His Word promises that if we would only ask we would receive.  If we have not received perhaps it is because we think him to not be true to his Word.  If your bank book registers riches beyond measure why do you fear to go to the bank to make a withdrawal?

Let us be like Jacob of old who refused to leave the teller station until we obtain what we need for today.  The strength we need for today is already in your account all you have to do is ask.  Now I did learn something about banking this past week.  I had made a rather large deposit in my account and the teller told me that I could not access all of these funds all at once.  They would place a hold on my account until the check had cleared.  So I counted the days until the check had cleared and made my withdrawal without and fear that the funds would not be there.

Perhaps you have asked for strength for today and God has told you to wait on Him a little longer.  The funds are already in your account but perhaps God has other things for you to learn so when you do receive the funds you will spend them on what really matters.

Hear these words once more from our Lord in the gospels, “Fear not little flock for it is the father’s good pleasure ot give you the kingdom.”  Though you may have to wait for it for a few moments it will only seem like a short time when you finally step into the eternal kingdom.  Until then keep on asking and keep on seeking and keep on knocking and you will find our God is more than faithful to give you exactly what you need to thrive in this fallen world.

Waiting for the Bank to Open,
