According to Proverbs 2:6 , our God is a giver. James 1:5 says He gives generously.When it comes to giving He has no limits , Ephesians 3:20 says he is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.
I have always wondered why God sent an army of heavenly host to protect Elisha in 2 Kings 6:17 when He knows that a single angel is enough.According to 2 Chronicles 32:21 , an angel is sufficient to combat 185,000 military personnel in battle.Why send so many ?
So also when God wanted to anoint David, He told Samuel fill your horn with oil -2 Kings 6:17 . Why anoint a man with so much oil ? The oil used that day to anoint David was enough to anoint a congregation. no wonder David said in Psalm 23:5 You anointed my head with oil and my cup run over.
All Hannah asked for was a son in 1 Samuel 1:11, the Lord gave her 4 boys and two girls in 1 Samuel 2:21.All Peter wanted was just enough fish to sell but Jesus filled two boats with fishes for him in Luke 5:7. If all Jesus did was feed the 5000 men not counting women and children in Matthew 14:13-21 ,we will have called it a big miracle but to ensure there was still twelve baskets left ? I don’t understand.
The reason why God does these things is to inform His children of His generosity, so they can stop asking Him for petty things.
ACTION POINT:Ask Him for something big today in faith and i can assure you , He will provide it.
