That Is Just Like God

When Jesus feeds the hungry, as he did with the 5,000, there is plenty left over. All we can say is , that is just like God. when Jesus clothes the naked, as God did with the “lilies of the field,” there is an adornment surpassing anything Solomon in all h is glory could have imagined. All we can say is, that is just like God.

“All things are yours,” the apostle Paul proclaimed in 1 Corinthians 3:21. Abundance is all about us, reflecting God’s abundant nature. Our God says to us what the father said to his “prodigal” son in one of the most incredible statements in the Bible: “All that is mine is yours” (Luke 15:31). That is just like God.

the miracle of the loaves and fishes is a prime example of God’s extravagance. Human need could not justify all that was left over in the absence of famine, plague or natural disaster. That is just like God. Our God does “abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).  That is just like God.

Our God promises to meet our every need “according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). That is just like God.

Wen we pray “Give us this day our daily bread,” we are not praying for a  prison diet of bread and water, but for an abundant supply of whatever it takes to make the body and soul faithful instruments for God. The word which we translate “daily” (eqiousios) actually conveys the meaning of abundance (supersubstantialis). We are given beyond what we deserve or need for subsistence. Seek first the kingdom of God, the Bible says, and what is added will be amazing (Matthew 6:33). All we can say is what? “That is just like God”.

In a time of uncertainty and need, call upon the Lord for help. It would be great if you would call upon Him when you do not face a time of uncertainty and need. Nevertheless, you can call on Him: “Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer; listen to my cry of supplication. In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me” (Psalm 86:6-7). That is just like God.

My friends, today I suggest that you do more than just call upon the Lord for Him to meet your needs. Begin by praising Him for the needs He has supplied in your life. That is just like God!
