LITTLE IN MY HANDS.


Have you ever been in that position where what is in your hands doesn't seem enough? 
When the little in your hands cannot make it work as you still feel like there is not enough in your life and nothing in your hands and yet you see some persons with little in their hands.

I will like you relax as I take you through the little in your hands you are not seeing save you utilizing.


2 Kings 4:1-7
4 The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, "Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves."
2 Elisha replied to her, "How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?"
"Your servant has nothing there at all," she said, "except a little oil."
3 Elisha said, "Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few. 4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side."
5 She left him and afterward shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. 6 When all the jars were full, she said to her son, "Bring me another one."
But he replied, "There is not a jar left." Then the oil stopped flowing.
7 She went and told the man of God, and he said, "Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your sons can live on what is left." [New International Version]

I want to strategically break down the scriptures above relating it with the older post where we shared Samson’s view of nothing in my hands.
The widow had something little in the house, the house here represents her life but the creditor is coming to take her boys away as slave, thereby making the little in her hands seem like nothing. That was the reason she replied Elisha in verse 2 when he asked how can I help you? What do you have in your house (life)? 
He was asking her – How can I help you bring down the spirit of God upon what is in your Life (house) mightily as in the case of Samson.

This is revealing that we grow from nothing in our hands through reconciliation of the little in our house(life). 

You attract divine helpers who give or help deliver what is in your destiny package through reconciliation. 
Remaining in the state of nothing in my hands is a state that needs the divine intervention of God – i.e. the spirit of God coming mightily upon you by force or even without your permission.

The widow in verse 2 replied: ‘Your servant has nothing at home at all’, except a little oil – this revealed the definition of little. The little oil cannot solve what’s on ground, it can’t bring the creditors fee to redeem her boys of a truth but it can be multiplied! 

HOW TO USE THE LITTLE IN MY HANDS.
Go and ask all your neighbours for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few, then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars.
Few instructions there:
-  Attract help: The little in your hands is placed there to attract help – to attract destiny help and helpers. Your neighbours (since house = our life, then neighbours = helpers)

-  Don’t ask for just a few: the little in your hands will be multiplied according to what you ask because they are your helpers (neighbours) they will give as much as is in your destiny package.

-  Shut the door behind you: i.e. put behind you the ideology of little in my hands. Its a process of Solitude where the spirit of God comes upon you mightily to turn the little into what you alone cannot handle.
                           .
-  Pour oil into all jars: make use of every opportunity destiny has to offer you. All the jars are what your life is dependent on! If you refuse to use a jar, it leaves your life ajar.

Followed those procedures, she went and told the Man of God and he said Go, sell the oil and pay your debts. You and your Sons can live on what is left.
In whatever way you use your little, you live on what’s left.
If you refuse to use a jar, it leaves your life ajar!

I pray you the grace to make use of the little in your life till abundance be found in your life.

THE 7 DISPENSATIONS IN THE BIBLE

Dispensationalism is a method of interpreting history that divides God’s work and purposes toward mankind into different periods of time. Usually, there are seven dispensations identified, although some theologians believe there are nine. Others count as few as three or as many as thirty-seven dispensations. 

In this article, we will limit ourselves to the seven basic dispensations found in scripture.

HOW COME THAT IDIOT IS RICH AND I AM NOT?

Here is why..,
That idiot is had an encounter with the spirit realm, an encounter with the Spirit of God not mammon. He's firstly  sure who is master is as this is the secret to a lasting financial life and destiny.

.....for it is in the office of God by His Spirit to give you the power to make wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18 emphasis added) but you have to remember Him(God).

DID JOHN THE BAPTIST REALLY EAT INSECTS(LOCUST)?

His name was divinely given. It was to be “John” (Luke 1:13), which derives from a Hebrew term signifying “Jehovah is gracious.” He was known familiarly as “the Baptist” (bearing no relation to the modern sect), which simply means “an immerser, one who administers the rite of immersion” (Matthew. 3:1; 11:11; ..). The Jewish historian Josephus even refers to John by this designation (Antiquities 18.5.2).


The importance of John in the divine scheme of things probably is summed up best in the testimony of Jesus himself. “Among them that are born of women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” (Matthew 11:11). Luke does say of John: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his showing unto Israel” (Luke 1:80). This desert (or deserted) area “stretches from Jerusalem and Bethlehem eastward some 20 miles down to the Jordan River and the Dead Sea.” It is “a barren region of rugged hills and valleys” (Earle, 30).

SERVANTHOOD

2 Peter 1:1 – Simon Peter,  a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Peter’s first letter was a message of encouragement, instruction and admonition to the Christians who were scattered throughout Asia minor.

Even though he was part of Jesus' inner circle and was a pillar in the early church , he opens his letter by calling himself a servant.

This shows you that it doesn’t matter how long you have been a Christian or how mightily the Lord used to,  you are always a servant.

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST?

ARE THERE TYPES OF FAST? Fasting is the periodic abstention from food and in some cases even water; usually this is done during the daylight hours and many people fast for religious and health reasons. Fasting is an ancient practice that has assisted in attaining a state of spiritual consciousness that is more highly sensitive and elevated than under normal conditions.

Many people in the Bible fasted, including Moses, David, and Daniel in the Old Testament and Anna, Paul, and Jesus Christ in the New Testament. Many important figures in Christian history attested to fasting’s value, as do many Christians today.

The purpose of fasting is not to get God to respond as a genie in a bottle to grant our every wish. Fasting, whether it is regular, partial, absolute, or sexual, is a seeking after God’s heart, all other blessings and benefits being secondary to God Himself. This is what sets apart biblical fasting from other religious and cultural practices around the world.
