Psalm 65:9 NLT
[9] You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The river of God has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so.

Good Morning!
God is the giver of life. What resource is more valuable than any other in the universe – Water! Without water, life cannot exist. Our bodies are made up of about 60% water and without it, we would just be “dry bones.”

This verse can be translated as God has exhaust-less resources. Not only does he provide water for us, but He gives us literally everything. He created everything for his good pleasure. In Genesis, each day of creation, “God saw that it was good.”

God who created everything, including us with His exhaust-less resources, gives us the confidence that He will take care of us and be our loving provider. He gives us breath each day, the sunshine to light the earth and the natural resources around us that we all use every day.

But, not only does He provide the natural resources for us with His exhaust-less supply, but also endless:
• Love
• Grace
• Peace
• Joy
• Patience
• Kindness
• Faithfulness
• Gentleness
• Generosity
• Forgiveness

This list could go on and on forever. But these are just a few.

God’s abundant generosity should make us ever-so grateful to Him and generous to others as an example and a reflection of Him. We serve a Lord that knows our needs better than we do. He provides all of our needs according to His riches in glory. He is our shepherd and we shall not want. He supplies everything we need with plenty left over to share with others so we too can be generous.

Philippians 4:19 NKJV
[19] And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Psalm 23:1 NKJV
[1] The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT
[8] And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.

God sends His resources to us so that we can use it for Him. He wants us to produce His good fruit so that His plans are accomplished. This life is not about “gathering grain,” trying to fill our storehouses for our personal gain, it is about using the resources that God gives us, living generously and giving, and showing others the love of God. When we live fully for Him, the Holy Spirit will work in and through us, guiding us and providing opportunities to share God’s generous resources.

Isaiah 55:10-11 NLT
[10] “The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. [11] It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

The first thing is first though, we must seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give us everything we need. It is a daily commitment to live generously. It is an eternal commitment to walk with God as His beloved.

Matthew 6:33 NLT
[33] Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

So as the receivers of God’s endless resources, we are to live large for Him, we are to commit to being generous and show others around us the fruits of the spirit that grow in our hearts as God continues to water our lives. God LOVES a cheerful giver!

Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
[22] But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, [23] gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

2 Corinthians 9:6-10 NLT
[6] Remember this-a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. [7] You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” [8] And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. [9] As the Scriptures say, “They share freely and give generously to the poor. Their good deeds will be remembered forever.” [10] For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.

I love you and am praying for you today!
