The Lord said, “Open your mouth wide and I will fill it” but how can you open your mouth wide when it is already full. So do not hold on to the old blessings. Make way for the NEW, more enhanced blessings by giving from your lot.
Here’s a little story to seal this up into understanding: One day, As Jesus was with His disciples teaching them, some temple tax collectors came to Peter and asked him,
“Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”
“Yes, he does,” Peter replied. Peter’s response tells me that Christ always had money on them. Even if Christ would not eat, at least his disciples needed to eat – so they needed money, not only for the temple tax, but also to eat. After Christ’s encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well, His disciples came to him with food – now how did they get this food? They had to use money.
Going back to the story:- At the time that the temple tax collectors came, there was no money on Jesus or his disciples. I have a very strong believe that Jesus in His walk and travels was always giving out the moneys he had until there was nothing left to pay the tax collectors. So Christ was a GIVER and we know! But see this miracle – The moment there was a need for money,
THERE WAS A PROVISION.
“..go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coins. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.” - Matthew 17:27.
The MUCH MORE!
Christ has proven that Givers indeed never lack (Proverbs 28:27) and all their needs will be met at the right place and at the right time. God is never too early, never too late but ALWAYS ON TIME TO MEET YOUR EVERY NEED. Have you been blessed? Share and bless someone today.
