God Is Not Cheap!

Description

God has been represented as a God Who is on a tight budget and Who disapproves of us asking for more than just the necessities. But the Lord's willingness to meet our needs with plenty to spare has always been evident.

John 2:6, "And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece."

JOHN 2:1-11

God has been represented as a God who is on a tight budget and who disapproves of us asking for anything more than just the necessities. However, this first miracle of Jesus disproves that.

Scholars suggest that a firkin was equal to about nine U.S. gallons. This would mean that six of these water pots would hold 162 gallons of wine. That's a lot of wine!

In a similar instance when Jesus was asked to provide food for the multitude, He once again supplied more than the need (Matthew 14:15-21; Mark 6:33-44; Luke 9:11-17).

These examples show the Lord's willingness to meet our needs with plenty to spare. God is not cheap!

Today, don't limit God to barely meeting your needs. If you have enough, then believe for extra so that you can bless someone else. "Let God be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servants" (Psalm 35:27).
