When it comes to being a resource two things are available – everything that we bring added to everything that God brings.
Often we look down on what we can bring. We don’t think our talent or treasure is up to much. Our past, the circumstances we have travelled through, all of our experiences, we just think they are not of any great value.
Here’s the important thing to remember: God can make SOMETHING out of NOTHING.
In 2 Kings 4 Elisha asked the widow what she had in her house. What resource did she have available? Her first reply was not very positive. ‘Nothing‘. Followed quickly by ‘I have a little oil’.
I think we can be like this. We don’t recognise what we have and maybe even despise what we can bring. Yet, when we bring our little, our nothing, God can make something out of it. We may have to search for it a little more but there is resource in us that God wants to get out.
His desire is to get resource IN and THROUGH us.
It’s about becoming a conduit of resource and not a hoarder. Then the glory of God will rise upon us, the light of His countenance will shine on us and that’s a great place to find yourself in.
What resource do you need to let God get IN you and THROUGH you?
