A dear daughter shared a testimony in Church recently. She had been trusting God for a lot of things for the festive season. Suddenly, someone called her and asked; “What do you need for Christmas?” Immediately, she listed everything with their prices and sent to the person. Within minutes, she received alert on her phone; all were met and even more.

Friend, God will meet your needs this season. I understand that the festive season is demanding as well as expensive. But God is bigger than the season. Since Jesus is the reason for the season, He would definitely show up for you. Like the folks at the marriage at Cana of Galilee, you will not be disappointed. This season will be that of surplus and sweetness for you (John 2:1-11).

Humans cannot outclass God in goodness. In fact, God describes the goodness of men as evil compared to His own goodness (Matthew 7:11). For us, goodness is an action but for God, goodness is His nature. He cannot stop being good, especially to His children (Psalms 84:11, 85:12). If some humans can go the extra mile for people, how much more God? You can trust Him.

“The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger…” (Psalms 34:10). The young lions have parent lions who can fend for them yet they suffer hunger when the jungle is not smiling. The strongest and smartest of people still go without sustenance. But you and I can always rely on God. We may not be strong, smart or brave but we are led by the Shepherd who ensures that our needs are met (Psalms 23:1-6).

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). This season, write your list believing that God will meet them beyond your widest imagination. Don’t pity God; you cannot run Him dry. You cannot empty His account. Stop economizing Grace. There is something called the riches of God’s glory in Christ. It is endless, boundless and super abounding.

Just like David blessed Mephibosheth because of Jonathan’s sake, God is blessing you because of Christ (2 Samuel 9:1-13). You may not merit God’s blessings but mercy would bring them to you. Don’t cut yourself off from the flow of God’s goodness. You qualify because of Grace; because of Christ. Forward your list to God, receive of His fullness this season (John 1:16). You will not be stranded or disappointed! Amen!
