Are You Limiting God?
The situation looked bleak for a poor widow in the Old Testament. Her husband had died, and she had debts to pay. All she had was one little jar of oil. Without question, she was in trouble. What do you do when trouble comes knocking on your door? This distraught widow went to God for help. And Elisha, God’s prophet, told her to go and borrow lots of empty jars for that little bit of oil. So she went out into her neighborhood and collected so many jars and she began to pour her little bit of oil into the empty jars. As long as there were empty jars, there was still oil to pour. Listen, we determine the size and amount of our blessing by our faith. So pray big. Believe big. And get lots and lots of jars! Now that’s real hope.
