RHAPSODY OF REALITIES: It’s Not Enough To Have Enough - Today Message (July 21st 2016)

Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth (Ephesians 4:28).

There’re different levels of prosperity and you must keep challenging yourself to go higher. Some are at the level where they have just enough to get by, but it’s not enough to have enough. God’s plan is for you to live in superabundance, where you’re powerful and influential enough financially to do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, however you want to do it!

Don’t be comfortable to have just enough for you and your family. Don’t be comfortable with having only all you need; challenge yourself to achieve more. You need to prosper exceedingly, not just for you and your family, but so you can be of help to those in need. Be the one that blesses others. This is what God told Abraham: “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2).

God isn’t interested only in blessing you; He has blessed you and made you a channel of blessing. Our opening verse reveals the purpose for your labour; it’s so that you’ll have to give. There’s a blessing for the one who gives. Others must benefit from your prosperity. Someone says, “My business is doing very well; and everything is fine in my family….” Is that really all there is to life? Is that what Jesus died for? What about others who don’t have enough?

When the children of Israel went out to the Promised Land and were taking their inheritance, Joshua said to them, “...The LORD your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land…but ye shall pass before your brethren armed…and help them…Until the LORD have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you…” (Joshua 1:13-15). This should be your attitude: live beyond yourself and be a blessing to others.

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your grace upon my life, to be a blessing to others, and a dispenser of eternal verities. I’m like a well-watered garden, and an ever-flowing spring, giving life, restoring hope, and bringing joy to those in my world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Further Study: || Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. ||
|| Proverbs 21:13 Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. ||
|| Hebrews 13:16 CEV But don't forget to help others and to share your possessions with them. This too is like offering a sacrifice that pleases God. ||
