GENEROUS GOD

READ:
Ephesians 3:14-21

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
-Ephesians 3:20

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Chronicles 32-33
John 18:19-40

When our family lived in Chicago several years ago, we enjoyed many benefits. Near the top of my list were the amazing restaurants that seemed to try to outdo each other, not only in great cuisine but also in portion sizes. At one Italian eatery, my wife and I would order a half portion of our favourite pasta dish and still have enough to bring home for dinner the next night! The generous portions made us feel like we were at Grandma’s house when she poured on the love through her cooking.
I also feel an outpouring of love when I read that my heavenly Father has lavished on us the riches of His grace (Ephesians 1:7-8) and that He is able to do “exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think” (3:20). I’m so grateful that our God is not a stingy God who begrudgingly dishes out His blessings in small portions. Rather, He is the God who pours out forgiveness for the prodigal (Luke 15), and He daily crowns us “with lovingkindness and tender mercies” (Psalm 103:4).
At times we think God hasn’t provided for us as we would like. But if He never did anything more than forgive our sins and guarantee heaven for us, He has already been abundantly generous! So today, let’s rejoice in our generous God. – Joe Stowell
Lord, remind me often that You have been exceedingly generous to me. Help me to extend that generosity of spirit towards those around me, so that they may know who You are and rejoice in You.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
