Yahshua said, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.” (Luke 6:38, NIV) He was totally aware of the great benevolence in His Father’s nature. He knew that when we begin to give ourselves in His service the benefits and blessings will be exceptional, beyond what we can think or imagine.
There is no grudging in Yahweh, He doesn’t measure out His goodness by drops or scraps; He doesn’t give false impressions of plenty [no bags half-filled with air!]; He is not niggardly or mean. Everything He does is hallmarked by overflowing abundance and generosity. Mrs Cowman writes that when He sets out to do something for us, “He does it with a prodigality of love -prompted abundance that fairly staggers one who reckons things by the coldly calculating standards of earth.” [Springs in the Valley] What a fantastic statement that is! Are you staggered by the abundance of Yahweh’s provision in your life?
The apostle Paul puts it like this, “And [Elohim] is able to make all grace [every favour and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything…” (2 Corinthians 9:8, Amp.) In almost 6,000 years, throughout 60 centuries, decade after decade, no-one anywhere has been able to out give Yahweh; and He is our Father!
