Something Cracked

Within 18 hours: provision for the DOVE Prayer Center Business Plan, long-awaited payment-in-arrears of Ibrahim’s Anti-Corruption allowances, cash received for books sold, payment from Eshel Guest House visitors, income from the sale of greenhouse produce. . . . What? Obviously, something cracked up in the heavenlies. And through that crack, finances started pouring down.

Last Sunday, I taught the first message in a series on “Principles of Biblical Prosperity.” We demonstrated with bottles and buckets how God wants to pour finances into those who are faithful to sow the same into His Kingdom. The containers that were giving more into the bucket titled “Kingdom” were the same ones being filled to overflowing again and again.  Whenever they were empty, more was poured in.

Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act” has been ringing in my heart for several weeks now. In our context, there are so many desperate, deserving friends all around; it seems like we could empty a coffer-full every day just trying to help people get through very difficult times.

We had certainly emptied out every last shilling this past week. It was so serious that I almost set out on a long drive without enough fuel in the gas tank because none of the stations I could find would accept a credit card! But coming home from that same trip, we experienced the outpouring. The 18 hours of multiple blessing-breakthroughs.

Certainly God fills us up when we are willing to pour out what He has already given. It might be love. It might be wisdom. It might be clothes from the closet. It might be money. Isn’t it interesting how God is faithful to replenish when we are willing to empty ourselves? You probably could share many testimonies of how and when it has happened to you.

What else is God asking me to pour out to others today? When I do it in obedience and faith, I am certain He will bring the refill. Such a faithful God we serve!
