Hi all and good Monday morning to you. It’s a little cloudy here today which is a bummer since it was sunny and beautiful yesterday. But God is good and His Son shines brightly all the time!
So I wanted to share this little treasure with you… it’s a miracle found in a book I admit I don’t read often enough…
2 Kings 4:5-6 “So she went from him and shut the door behind her and her sons who brought the vessels to her and she poured it out. Now it came to pass when the vessels were full that she said to her son ‘bring me another vessel’ and he said to her ‘there is not another vessel’ so the oil ceased.”
This woman and her sons were very poor and had debts that they could not afford to pay. A man of God instructed her to gather many many vessels to hold the abundance of oil that he knew God would provide. The oil just kept flowing until there were no more vessels. Now don’t miss the fact that the vessel supply ran out BEFORE the oil did. God pours out and only stops when we have no more vessels to hold the oil as it were. When we fill ourselves with the word of God (His oil) then we have an overflow to fill other vessels (other people). Now only God can fill people, but we may be the flask He chooses to pour from.
Fill your flask (your heart) and let God pour onto others from your flask.
