The series is getting interesting by the day. I do hope you have read the first three parts: Part One, part two and part three. We have been discussing some essential elements to take note if you want to see abundance amidst the scarcity you have. Many a times we want our situations to change in a minute or second. We quickly want to look out for help from man. To our utmost surprise, the people who promised us are amongst the first to disappoint us. Sincerely, some of them do have genuine reasons why they cannot help you, and it’s no fault of them. After you have identified your needs and not your wants, identified your resources and willing to obey the instructions, you then need to build capacity to sustain the abundance.
4. Borrow more vessels
Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few.2 Kings 4:3 (NIV)
As I was writing this booster, I kept wondering why Elisha asked the woman to borrow empty vessels and not jars of oil. I think it was because the women needed capacity to sustain the abundance that is about to come to her.
Before God releases his blessings, He prepares you to develop the capacity to sustain the blessing that is about to come. Moreover, the amount of vessels you can borrow determines how much abundance of oil you can get. Many of us are quick to borrow jars of oil and this leads us to much poverty. We are quick to borrow money and other material resources to get what we need, instead of developing the capacity to sustain the abundance that is about to get to you. Don’t get me wrong, there are some instances that you may be directed to borrow some of these resources, it is God that works in His own ways. However, God always develops our capacity to sustain the abundance He is about to send out way.
You have been seeking to start a company with the little money you have. You may be struggling to sustain the company that you just started. It may even be that you are currently struggling with your academics and your grades seem to be poorer than expected. You eagerly yearn to see growth in your life. Then it’s time for you to build capacity to host that increase. Start by investing your time into studying and reading about what can help you host that abundance. Get in touch with other people who can help you achieve the vision you need. God has provided us with these helps to prepare us to host the abundance He is sending our way.
I thank you very much for your word that I have heard today. Thank you for the abundance you are sending my way. I pray that You will help me build the capacity to host the abundance you are sending my way. I subject my will and way to Yours. Come and have Your own way in my life. This and many other blessings I ask in the name of Christ my Lord. Amen!!
If you have not yet received Christ, you have the opportunity to do so. Just pray with me by saying these words aloud:
I thank you Jesus for dying to save a sinner like me. I receive you as my Lord and personal savior. Please come and stay in my heart as we fellowship together. I surrender my will and everything unto you. AMEN!
If you have said these prayers after me, please do find a Bible believing and Holy Spirit filled church to fellowship with. God bless you for taking that step of faith to walk with Christ.
