TOPIC: THE POWER OF GENEROSITY
SCRIPTURE: Let us make a little chamber … and it shall be, when he cometh to us, that he shall turn in thither. – 2 Kings 4:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your generosity can handle your calamity.
In the journey of life and destiny, one of the greatest powers to possess is the power of generosity.
In the Bible, people of great destiny were given to unusual generosity. For example, when you observe the lives of men like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Job, etc., you will realise that they were highly generous. There can be no great destiny on earth without true generosity. Generosity has also been discovered to be the cure for adversity.
Looking at the woman of Shunem, one product of generosity is clear: through generosity, the reproach of barrenness was terminated in her life.
Your generosity can handle your calamity. Your generosity can also handle your insult and shame.
Some time ago, a lady who had been barren heard a message I preached on generosity and decided to respond to it by taking baby clothes to orphanages as gifts. In response to her generosity, God intervened in her situation and she gave birth to a set of identical twins. Indeed, generosity terminated her reproach.
I prophesy to you; receive the grace to be generous in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Your generosity can handle your calamity.
1. Never take prophetic instructions for granted (Hosea 12:13).
2. Do as the passage says: be generous.
