41 In Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: More Than Enough

Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  (Ephesians 3:20)

Last week, I was growing faint with worry over our current circumstances.  This week, I am in awe of His faithfulness.  Just when it seemed like all hope was gone, He brought forth manna from heaven to meet our very need.  Not just one gift, but two.  Gifts I did not dare have the faith to ask for; yet in His loving kindness and through His power at work in others, He showed His great love and care for us and made a way where there was no way.  He has provided above and beyond.  He has given us more than enough.

He is the God of hope.  If you are going through a hard time, do not lose heart.  Hang on to hope and dare to believe that He has the power to provide more than you ever dare to hope for or imagine.

I would love for you to join me for Fresh Brewed Sundays.  This is where we share a scripture with just simple insight.  No heavy words necessary.  Feel free to use the button in your post and link up below!

    Yes we should always hold on to hope! I know He’s never late! When we were building our house, I thought I’d have to borrow money but after praying God said, don’t borrow money! He came though at just the right time and we were able to finish building our house! Praise Him! Patsy
