When I hear on the news that they’ve discovered a new fish, I always think of God and smile. In the deep depths of the sea they still discover new creatures. And they are very beautiful and interesting. I like that so much about God, how He made so many creatures and we haven’t even seen all of them. Some of the most beautiful and interesting ones are in some corner we will never get to. God creates abundantly. There’s always enough.
In Gen. 1: 20-22 God says: “Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth…” And isn’t that true? There are so many fishes in the sea. So many birds, so many bees, and other flying creatures. How wonderful!
In the same way we can create abundantly – we often think, ‘this is enough’ or ‘this is all I can expect’ but God is saying, make more, think bigger, keep going.
Like Eph. 3:20 says that God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. Don’t forget the second part, the power that works within us. This means it is His power working in us, but it also means that we can control how strong that power is by how much room we give it.
In the world we keep hearing every day that there’s not enough. Not enough energy, not enough money, not enough space. But we don’t have to think the way the world does. As Paul says in Romans 12, we can renew our mind and align it to God’s will.
So next time you think you might not have or get enough, change your thinking, wonder what God would say. I love this part in Numbers 11:23 where God says to Moses: “Is the Lord’s hand shortened?” or in other words: is the power of God limited? No. And we know He can do all. Now let’s just align our thinking with His, and see what He is able to do through the power that works within us :)
