Thanks for coming. I’ll see you tomorrow.

Actually, before I go, let me elaborate a bit. Just two quick points and I’m outta your hair. First, regardless of the limitations you might be facing, where you are right now is not where you’ll always be. Perhaps you’re experiencing some deficiency or wondering when you’ll see increase in a particular area. Know that God is working (have I told you that enough?) and He is an expert in restoring, growing, maturing and turning things around for the people who love Him.

Last point: Don’t sleep on God’s ability to use whatever you have. Whether it’s a small amount of time, talent, money or fill in the blank, God is capable of using what you make available to Him for His glory and the cause of His kingdom. Ever read about the feeding of the 5,000? A little boy’s fish and bread, placed in Jesus’ hands, made a difference in the lives of all those people. You’ll be surprised how a little can go a long way when we entrust it to the Master. It’s not up to us to figure out how He’ll use it, our job is to simply surrender it.

So, think more when it comes to whatever you consider small in your life.  Instead of emphasizing your inadequacies and insufficiencies, think more about your all-sufficient God. I’m certain that will lead to opportunities to see Him move in your life. If I end up being right about that, drop me a comment and let me know!

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV
