God’s generous name

RE Verse reading–1 Corinthians 16:1-4, 2 Corinthians 8:1-15, 9:6-15 (day three)  “Now HE WHO SUPPLIES seed to the sower and bread for food will SUPPLY and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness”  (9:10)  It is His name.  More than what He does, it is who He is.  In 2 Corinthians 9, the Apostle Paul reveals a name for God that is often foreign to our thinking.  “HE WHO SUPPLIES!”  (Please say it out loud!)  If we meditate on it, this truth will change our lives.  Specifically, Paul has in mind the miracle of seed-planting and harvest.  How many seasons has God performed this miracle for a hungry world?  Thousands?  Millions? And for one who never changes, past is prediction and promise.  Generosity is part of His character.  Something we can count on.  It is His name.  “My God shall SUPPLY all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”  (Philippians 4:19)  No fear! We serve “HIM WHO SUPPLIES”
