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.

Lets move on; The Apostle Paul speaks of the variety of spiritual gifts : “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. . . . But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will” (I Corinthians 12:4–11).

DISCERNING THE MOVE OF GOD

Acts 2:17 [17]And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams God wants to move again and He needs a lot of vessels. God is not trying to repeat the same thing. He does not fail so He does not repeat. He only uses a familiar operation; a familiar move to men to progress the birth of The revival. Christianity(The Sphere of Religion) cannot export and empty itself into other spheres of influence, Men have to be exported into these spheres and the only way men will be exported is when we discern what God is trying to do and position ourselves for these moves. Our generation has to understand the synchronization between the Cyclical and the Acyclical move of God. We need to understand how these dimensions sync into each other to birth the revival.

ARE YOU TRUE TO YOUR CALLING? | Pastor E.A Adeboye

There are many people in ministry today who are going off track because they are operating in areas wherein they were not called.  Some out of personal ambition, are operating in callings that are not theirs while others are innocently operating in the wrong callings out of concern. Having a burden about something or seeing a need does not automatically translate to a calling! “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.”                    2 Timothy 2:5 KJV According to the above Bible verse, anyone who does things outside the will of the Master will be disqualified. Everyone who God has called is scored by Him! If what you are doing is outside God’s calling for your life, no matter how good you are in that calling or ministry, it is regarded as irrelevant. Paul was greatly burdened by how the Jews were walking outside the will of God. He kept preaching to them, yet they were persecuting him. The greatest persecution he go
