“How many times . . . has the Lord said, “Yield up the pieces, the scraps, the leftovers of your lives. All you’ve got is all I need to make a mountain from your molehill of faith”?

He said that through Elisha to a woman who came to the prophet in great distress. Her sons were about to be sold into slavery as a settlement for her late husband’s debts (2 Kings 4:1–7).

The widow had one small container of oil—nothing else of value.

“Gather up all of your empty vessels—whatever old pots and pitchers you can find or borrow,” the prophet commanded, “and begin to fill them with oil.” 

 “The widow did as she was bid, and she found to her amazement that there was enough oil to fill every vessel—enough to pay the debt and keep her family for life. . . .

God stands ready to transform all that we offer (when it is all that we have) into all that we need.

Excerpt From

Joy for the Journey: Morning and Evening

 

 “[Jesus] took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

MATTHEW 14:19–21


“As for God, His way is perfect;

The word of the LORD is proven;

He is a shield to all who trust in Him.

2 SAMUEL 22:31
