BREAD OR CRUMBS?

Read:
Proverb 30:7-9

Memorise:
Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me:
Proverb 30:8

Bible in one year:
Acts 16-17
Jeremiah 38:1-13

Hymn:
Sing hymn 10 (in hard copy)

What you get from God depends on how contented or dissatisfied you are. While some people ask nothing from the Almighty God who has all things and who can do all things, some others ask for crumbs. Your desire and request go a long way in determining what you get in life. In Matthew 15:21-28, when the woman whose daughter was tormented by demons met the Lord, all she asked for was crumbs:
“And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
Matthew 15:27

Even today, after Jesus had said that the children of the Kingdom are meant to eat at God’s table, many of these children still prefer crumbs that fall from the Master’s table (Luke 12:32, Matthew 15:26). Where is your focus: the table or crumbs?

Similarly, there is a correlation between your desire and your trust in God. If you really have faith in God, you will be able to ask big. The Bible says those who know their God shall do exploits (Daniel 11:32). In other words, when you know little or nothing about God, when asked to make a request, you will be afraid of asking for too much, and so you will be confined to asking for so little. However, when you know how inexhaustible the resources of God are, it will stir up courage in your heart to ask for big, great and impossible things. Therefore, if you are asking for a used car, a tiny rented apartment or a job that can barely take you away from starvation, it is very possible that you do not know or trust God enough. In today’s Bible reading, Agur made a very humble request. He asked for neither poverty nor wealth. He feared poverty, lest he might be tempted to steal; and he also feared wealth, lest he deny God. Just enough was what he asked for. Using the children of Israel as a model of God’s plan for your life, you will observe that God took them from the wilderness, where they had Manna that was just enough for each day, to a land flowing with milk and honey, where they had more than enough (Exodus 16:15-19, Deuteronomy 6:10-11, Joshua 5:12). Just enough might mean not having reserves to take care of emergencies. That means, in an emergency, you may be forced to go cap in hand borrowing. Are you asking for little in consideration of others who are also asking God for the same thing? You can never exhaust God’s resources. Ask big and stop limiting yourself!

Action Point:
Ask God for something really big that only He can do for you.

The Good Seed

A threatening fist

And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Colossian 1:21-22

A threatening fist
The emperor Julian reigned over the Roman Empire from 361 to 363 AD. He is generally called the Apostate because he turned away from Christianity to return to paganism. Denying his Christian education to return to heathen idolatry was in fact a public declaration of war against God. In the year 363, when he was wounded in the course of a war, he is said to have raised his clenched fist towards heaven, crying, “You have won, Galilean!” In death, he revolted against Jesus Christ.
Maybe you, too, are at war with God, even if not expressed so strongly. You cannot accept the verdict of the Word of God that declares everyone a sinner. You remain hostile to God, even though Jesus Christ came to earth in Person with the aim of reconciling you with Himself.
God is ready to forgive the most violent attitude towards Himself. Did Jesus not ask His Father to forgive those who crucified Him?
Until now you have felt bitter towards God. If you are willing to bow before Him, to withdraw that threatening fist, to silence the feeling of rebellion in your thoughts, then immediately the One whom you hate will appear as He truly is: the God of peace who grants real, perfect peace to whoever comes to Him. That peace was made by the crucified Jesus: God inflicted on Him the punishment that our rebellion deserved.
Do not reject this offer of reconciliation: Its source is found in the heart of God, who loves you.
Today’s reading: Ecclesiastes 2
