OVERFLOWING AND EVER-FLOWING

Psa. 19:1-2 ¶ The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.

Luke subtly reveals the endless supply of God’s miracle power in his remarks describing the raising up of the dead young man in Nain. He began by saying, “Now it happened, the day after, that He went into a city called Nain…”. The day after what? The day after He raised the Roman centurion’s servant from the edge of death, Luke is showing us that every day is filled with the miracle power of our Lord. Did He touch your life recently? Get ready because He is our “glory to glory” God. He has moved in the past, He has infinite supplies of His glory to shower on His sons and daughters.
This year we are celebrating the 20 year anniversary of God’s visitation in our church. It was 1994 and at that time I had pastored Victory Fellowship for 16 years. I had experienced a measure of God’s glory on my life and ministry. Still, I had no idea that there was more, there was so much more. His outpourings that began for us in August of that year began to show all of us at Victory Fellowship that His storehouse was never diminished, that we had only tasted a small portion of what He has in store for His sons and daughters. He has miracles and works of grace to display in your life. Just as He surprised all of the people in Nain that day (especially the boy’s mom), with His sudden appearance and the amazing display of supernatural power, maybe He has something special prepared for you. Here are some interesting comments from Spurgeon on this very topic.

“Behold, dear brethren, the overflowing, ever-flowing power of our Lord Jesus Christ. He had wrought a great work upon the centurion’s servant, and now, only a day after, he raises the dead. ” It came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain.” Day unto day uttereth speech concerning his deeds of goodness. Did He save your friend yesterday? His fullness is the same; if you seek him, his love and grace will flow to you today. He blesses this day, and he blesses the day after. Never is our divine Lord compelled to pause until he has recruited his resources; but virtue goeth out of him forever. These thousands of years have not diminished the aboundings of his power to bless.”

I love to read Spurgeon. He is called the prince of preachers for a reason. His phrase “overflowing and ever flowing” is quite descriptive and captivating. In one short phrase he captures the unlimited and endless nature of God’s supply. God’s supply is also personal. His resources are overflowing and ever flowing toward you. Regardless of all He has done for you, in you, and through you; He has saved the best for last.
