Being instant in season and out does not imply that we are walking in abundance in order to give out to others. It implies that we forever be ready to be used.
The poor widow that Elijah was sent to had a little flour, a little oil, a couple of sticks, and a lot of discouragement. Doesn’t sound like much does it?
In God's economy even a very little if used properly can go a long way.
She brought what she had and God multiplied it many times over. God sustained her, and her son till the end of the drought!
The church will move more in the gifts when it begins to give out the little it currently has.
If you will step out in faith trusting God He will meet you, and give you what you need to be more than an over comer, more than able to bless others!
But, if you develop the “I can’t” syndrome, if you refuse the revelation of His love and allow ourselves to become the victim you will become convinced you have nothing to give.
Needs will go unmet, spiritual blessings will be missed, and divine opportunities squandered away. The means by which God desires to sustain will be wasted.
God has more than enough to go around. He is a God of great abundance who has promised us He will take care of us.
He has given us all things pertaining to life and godliness in His Son Jesus Christ. All His promises are yes and amen in Christ!
It might look like a famine out there! But there is more than enough flour and oil in our dwelling!
Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus who is the author and the finisher of our faith! Not on what we seem to not have!
You have more than enough! You have the bread of life living in you!
Never say, “I can’t.”

- I currently serve as Senior Pastor of Harvest Church in Knoxville, Tn. I was sent out from Trinity Chapel of Knoxville in 1993 accompanied by my wife Sheila our four children Sarah, Hannah, Josiah & Isaac and a handful of bold, brave and committed believers determined to plant our first church. Pioneering is hard work but well worth the journey. That is why we desire to make disciples of Christ who will, like us, also embrace the call to plant churches.
