God is "More than Enough

    By  Rev Shaun G Robinson.

    Sermon for Sunday 13th March.
     

    If I said to you the Words "MORE THAN ENOUGH"

    what would you think?

    What image would it create in your Mind?

     

    God has more that enough for each and everyone to come to him and have all their needs fulfilled with plenty more left over for other things.  What am I saying.  When Moses was in the desert with the Israelite's The Lord told him that He wanted a Tabernacle build right there in the desert.  God told Moses to tell the people to "Take from among you an offering unto the Lord: whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord; gold, and silver, and brass, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats’ hair, and rams’ skins dyed red, and badgers’ skins, and shittim wood. (Exodus 35:5-8)

     

    The call was made and the people came and gave what they had, so much so that Moses, said  "The people bring much MORE THAN ENOUGH for the service of the work, which the Lord commanded to make."  (Exodus 36:5) so Moses commanded the people to stop giving!!  How would you like to tell the people in your Church "to stop giving" because you had to much Money, or Food, or Clothes?  We don't see that in our Churches in fact we see the opposite Churches asking people to give more!

     

    Where did the Children of Israel get these items that they gave from?  When Moses lead the Children out of Egypt the Bible tells us that "the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they  borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment and the Lord gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.  (Exodus 12:35-36)   God's people had been slaves to the Egyptians for 430 and had never paid that anything, so God made sure that the Egyptians paid what they owed, and as we have seen God had a use for all these those things, but notice the Children of Israel had "more than enough" ever when that had given back to God. 

     If God is such a generous God and gives us "MORE THAN ENOUGH" why is it that we are living in lack?


    Many Christians today are "Living below God's acceptable Standard"

     

    I believe that there are two main reasons that we are not receiving "MORE THAN ENOUGH" in everything that we do, the first is that we "do not believe  we will receive" and the second reason is that "we do not practice what we preach"  What do I mean by that?  well:


    "We do not confess our Victory so consequentially we live in defeat" 


    We need to first of all start to believe that the promises of God will come to pass if we do all that we are meant to do. and secondly we are to "call those things that be not as though they were"  Romans 4:17.  Our faith can be seen by our actions, lets now take the appropriate actions so that people can see out faith by the results that we have in our daily lives.
