What Comes After “Except”
Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.” 2 Kings 4:2, NIV
In 2 Kings 4, things were so bad for the poor widow that the creditors were coming to take her two sons as payment for her bills. When she said she had nothing at all in her house, she didn’t realize she already had what she needed for the miracle. The principle is: Your talents and resources may seem like not enough, but when you use what you have, God will multiply it.
Notice that she said she had nothing “except” a small jar of oil. God is going to use what comes after the “except.” “I have nothing except this small talent and a little training. I have nothing except a few connections.” God is going to take what you think is insignificant and turn it into something extraordinary. When you come to the end of what you can do, when you don’t have the resources and run out of options, you’re in the perfect position for God to show out in your life. God’s about to do something unusual, something you couldn’t make happen.
Let Us Prayer
Father, thank You for the gifts, talents and resources that You have already given me. Thank You that You can take what seems like not enough and make it flow into abundance. I believe that You are going to multiply what I have and show out in my life. In Jesus’ Name,
