He is a God of more than enough

Daily Word - Oct 15th, 2018

While we were worshipping Sunday morning we were doing the song “ King of my heart” and when we got to the part where it says “ you are good, good, oh-oh” I heard the Lord say “I am a God of more than enough!”

I can remember one time we took a truck load of turkeys to the reservation in South Dakota. We had a truck load of frozen turkeys . We backed up to the community center and did some worship in the building before unloading the turkeys. As we gathered around with Chief Emmet American Horse and Nathan our son began beating his drum and my cousin Eric began playing his flute while Rusty was on the guitar we sang songs about how big God was, tears flowed down the faces of our friends there. God came into the house. After we were finished the turkeys were unloaded. We had so many set aside for each location we were visiting. As we asked how many were needed at that location we started unloading. Then the number needed increased so we set aside X amount and continued to unload. There were several of us counting being sure enough were unload and enough were kept. We began to notice the amounts taken off were more than we had counted to unload yet the remaining amount had not diminished. The only answer was that God was multiplying our turkeys! We recounted several times and then just thanked God for multiplication!

I saw this happen in Nicaragua. My team was to take only so many bags of rice out to the villages. We were running short and Rusty said to only take a certain amount and we could buy more if we found a place that had any.

Well before we left out for the day my translator, my lead pastor and myself met at the bus we were taking and laid hands on our rice asking God to multiply it. When we returned that evening from ministering and giving out the rice we found that we had rice left over! Our rice had multiplied! Someone who was doubtful said “ yeah you probably took some of our rice cause you had plenty and we ran out” nope we prayed and asked God to multiply our rice and He did! I had carefully checked that we only took the amount we were suppose to!

God is a God of MORE THAN ENOUGH if we just ask!

Matt 15:32 Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way.”

33 His disciples answered, “Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?”

34 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked.

“Seven,” they replied, “and a few small fish.”

35 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. 36 Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people. 37 They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 38 The number of those who ate was four thousand men, besides women and children
