The Bottom Line by Pastor Jimmy Tucker
Online grocery shopping and pickup has proved to be a blessing at our house. “Thank you” to Walmart, G&W Foods, Dollar General, and all the businesses that are stepping up to the challenges we now face. Due to fear and panic, it has become necessary to put a limit on the number of food and supply items that people purchase.
In times like these, we look to Jesus for hope. So even though a few items may not be available in the stores, we can be thankful there are no limits on God’s supply of grace. There is no end or limit to His goodness toward us. He is inexhaustible, immeasurable, unfailing, everlasting, infinite, and supreme. His supply never runs low. He provided everything we would ever need before we were born. Let’s look at seven encouraging scriptures to remind us of how God is not restricted in supplying the needs of believers:
There’s overflowing hope for you: “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13 NLT).
God’s love for you is unconditional. “I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow — not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love“ (Romans 8:38 NLT). God’s love will never leave you.
There’s abundant mercy for you. “For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You” (Psalm 86:5 NKJV).
There’s incredible grace for us. “…So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of His grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all He has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:7 NLT). We are rich in God’s grace.
He satisfies the longing soul with goodness. “Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness“ (Psalm 107:8,9 NKJV).
God’s power working in us is able to accomplish infinitely more than we think. “Now all glory to God, Who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20 NLT). Believe that God’s power is at work in your life.
Rest assured that God‘s arms are big enough to hold you safe and steady. “The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him” (Nahum 1:7 NKJV).
The Bottom Line: Take as much as you need from God’s storehouse!
