Overflowing Generosity

I worry about not having enough, not doing enough, not saying enough. I behave as if what God can do through me is limited to what I can provide. But God makes a clear promise in 2 Corinthians 9:10-15 that we will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way.

God's grace will never run dry. He will supply us with overflowing generosity. That generosity isn't meant to be hoarded; it's meant to be given. God’s generosity to us should spill out to those around us. We will never have to worry about giving enough or being good enough because God's grace poured out to us will never run out. 2 Corinthians 9:13 says, “Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else.”

What God can do through us is not limited to what we can provide. It is exponential and unfathomable when we live in obedience, expecting His provision and sharing generously the gospel of Christ and what He has and continues to give us.

Reflect:

  • How does your attitude and obedience change on a daily basis if you looked forward to God’s generosity rather than expecting Him to run out?
  • How can you combat the lie that what God can do through you is limited to what you can provide?
