Did you know that everything you need to go to the next level, is in your life right now? However most people do exactly what the widow at Zarapheth did when, instead of valuing what she had, she counted it as insignificant and unable to make a difference to her outcomes, and was making preparations to die the day Elijah showed up.
How will you handle it when the pressure is on? Life will take you to the place where it looks like you have nothing, but whatever it is that looks like nothing, is really your everything. You maybe didn’t recognize it yet, but the tiny bit of oil you have is the key! What is it that you despise about yourself?
The real question is this: are you tired of begging or are you ready to make a meaningful contribution? Do you go to church for a hand out, or have you understood that you are a vital part of God’s will and strategy in the Earth? Are you looking for a place to give the little you have yet?
No human being is born without a purpose, and you are no exception! You are loaded with potential, and you don’t have to wait until you look perfect and significant before you start working it out. Even while you are being processed and God is working on your wholeness, you can minister to someone else and reach out to another with a smile and some love; and while you heal someone else, your own healing comes to you.
In fact, God loves to use the people who look like nothing to do something awesome! He didn’t even send Elijah to anyone rich and arrogant to be provided for, and because of it, there was no confusion about who should get the glory. Many of the people God uses to bless you will not be the obvious ones. Don’t be afraid to be you – it is precisely YOU He wants!
As you accept who you are and where you are at, God will give you wisdom on how to maximize the return on who you are. Maybe you can only talk well! In that case God will enable you to find a business where talking will get you paid! There will be no increase in your life until you locate what you have and you start pouring it out! Everyone has enough to be promoted!
The thing you need to make sure of is that there is a flow, because if nothing is leaving you, nothing will come to you. This law of sowing and reaping is at the very heart of creation. Even God Himself, when He wanted sons, had to give the Son He had! Your tiny pot of oil is the key! Are you willing to release it?
