Matthew 7:11 ” If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!”

God is a generous giver and His desire is to bless us.  It says in James 1:17 that, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father…”  So as big-hearted as God is towards us, we need to reflect that generosity in our giving to others.  But He’s not just talking about money here…for it’s easy to give money.  No, He’s talking about our time…and we’re probably more tight-fisted about that than any amount of money we’d give.  Proverbs 21:26 tells us, “The righteous give without sparing.”  So if you’ve been stingy with your time for the Lord…think of this…you will never be able to out give God.

I Corinthians 1:5 ” For in Him you have been enriched in every way – in all your speaking and in all your knowledge…”

The Lord would say to you…Do not waste you time lamenting for things you do not have…for talents or gifts I have not given you. Rather, use what I have given you. Use the talents, gifts and passions I have placed uniquely in you, and do not limit Me. Do not limit My working through you. Use what you have. You need nothing else. You lack nothing I have not already placed in you. Do not limit Me in Your life. Trust Me, and you will never lack… for lacking is not of Me…as is fear and anxiety. Trust Me.
