verse 8: “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;”

George Mueller was a Christian evangelist in Bristol, England, who opened up first his home as an orphanage, and then later other orphanages. He never solicited donations or went into debt to procure the funds needed for building and operating these orphanages, trusting in God alone. (If you have ever seen the Veggietales video Gideon: Tuba Warrior, there is a retelling of his story on it.) As far as I have heard and researched, he was never in want as long as he trusted God for all his needs.

That’s what Paul is talking about. For those who trust in God, and who give cheerfully to God, God will not only bless with the grace for your needs, but for the needs to give “for every good deed”. I know there have been times when God has provided for my famly when we truly had a need and trusted in Him for deliverance. But let me remind you, it starts with trust in Him.

Have a blessed day!
