He’ll Bless What
“Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?”
“A staff,” he replied” (Exodus 4:2).
Anything you have that you can present to the Lord will be used mightily of Him to bring His miraculous power to bear in your life. He uses those seemingly “little” things you have to produce a miracle for you. Take Moses for example; the Lord gave him a task that looked impossible from the natural standpoint. He was to liberate about six million Israelites from the clutches of a harsh Pharaoh. Moses, asked the Lord, “What if they don’t believe you sent me?”
The Lord then asked him, “What is that in your hand?” Moses had a shepherd’s rod in his hand, and said “a rod.” He could have said “nothing” because a shepherd’s rod didn’t exactly have any connection with the discussion at hand. However, he answered wisely; and that rod became the miracle-producing rod of God.
Also, in 2 Kings 4:1-7, there’s the account of a certain widow who cried out to Elisha the Prophet for help after her two sons were taken as slaves in payment for her husband’s debt. Elisha asked her, “What do you have in your house?” All she had was a small bottle of oil. She could have said, “nothing”; and that would have robbed her of her miracle. But like Moses, she answered wisely and said, “A pot of oil.” Then Elisha told her to go borrow as many empty jars as possible, and she and her sons should go into the house, close the door, and pour the oil into the jars, setting aside each one that was full. From the proceeds, the woman paid off her debt and lived on the surplus.
The Lord will always bless and multiply back to you whatever you give to Him. It might be the last bit of money you have in your account; it might be your skill or talent; whatever it is, remember that it’s not the size that matters, but the quality of your faith. Whatever you have is God’s point of contact to bless you. Learn to present what you have to Him in faith, and He’ll multiply it back to you.
thank you for opening my eyes to see that everything I have is material for you to bless me. Therefore, as I present them to you in faith, I thank you for giving me a multiplied harvest of blessings
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
