Learning to See God’s Generosity

In review of 2 Corinthians 9:8 it says, “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.”

Bottom Line:
God will generously provide for your needs. Then you’ll have everything, and plenty left over to share with others.

What this means to me:
I can be assured that when I follow Jesus, God will bless me with everything I need. He will give more than enough so that I can do good things for others.

I think people often hesitate to give generously to God because they worry about having enough money left over to meet their own needs. In this section, Paul assured the Corinthians that God was able to meet their needs. A person who gives only a little will receive only a little in return. Don't let a lack of faith keep you from giving cheerfully and generously.

In addition, a giving attitude is more important than the amount given. The person who can give only a small gift shouldn't be embarrassed. God is concerned about how a person gives from his or her resources.

He is pleased when we who are created in his image give generously and joyfully. If I have a difficult time letting go of my money, it may reflect ungratefulness to God.

The will of God will never take me where the grace of God cannot keep me. His grace is sufficient. It might not look like it today from a worldly perspective, but focus on the message found in the Cross.. A message of life-altering, grave-shattering abounding hope, grace, and mercy.

While here on earth I will have trials and tribulations. No one gets by without them. When I focus on God and my priorities are aligned with His, it doesn’t mean I won’t suffer; it means that I will find HIm right beside me
