You Have Something!

Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with SUCH THINGS AS YE HAVE: …

A great deception which I have come to see that many folks are a victim of is the idea that they have nothing. This is a trick of the enemy that many believers are accepting.

Yes, it’s true that there are THiNGS that the other person has that you do not have. But you need to know that there is NO ONE INDiViDUAL that has ALL THiNGS to himself; always, there is a lack somewhere in somebody’ life.

No man is an island. Everyone has a limitation, I didn't mean in a negative sense. What I mean by “limitation” is that WHAT you have NOW, can only take you thus far; but to move into greater heights, you need somebody’ input. That’s how God designed life!

The problem I have seen is that most times, folks are blind to what they have. The enemy tells many folks that they have nothing; even when they “have” something, they tell themselves that what they seemingly have is not enough.

This mindset has made many folks to be covetous; they want to have what the other fellow has by all means. They have erroneously accepted a philosophy that what they need to “complete” them, is what somebody else has! What a lie.

As long as your eyes are on what the other guy has, which of course is not like your own, you will never see what you have. And even when you “see” them, you will never value them.

Did you notice what Paul said to us by the Spirit of God in Hebrews 13? He said be content with “such things as ye have…” Such THiNGS as YOU HAVE! Yes dear, you have something. And what you have is ENOUGH for you.

Don’t forget that God gave you what you have. And this God is a God of purpose, objectivity, and design.

Purpose always comes into play when God is creating or making. He is the GREAT MANUFACTURER.  Manufacturers of products never produce a thing without considering purpose.

Everything has a purpose. What you have was given you to suit your purpose. When you locate purpose, then you will begin to appreciate what you have. From today, begin to live in the consciousness of having something. YOU HAVE SOMETHiNG.


2 Kings 4:1-2 (KJV)

¶ Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: AND THE CREDiTOR iS COME TO TAKE UNTO HiM MY TWO SONS TO BE BONDMEN.

Beloved, it’s not enough to “fear” the Lord, no sir. If your life will have colour, you need to know some things in the Lord that will push you forward. You need to understand GRACE; RiGHT RELATiONSHiP; TAKiNG ADVANTAGE of PROPHETiC RELATiONSHiPS etc

The prophet-husband of this woman was blind to what he had that could have bailed him out of penury and shame. He died transferring debts to his family. He didn't have enough sense to “take advantage of prophetic relationship.”

After his death, reality dawned on the widow. Out of desperation she cried out to Elisha, another prophet, who had GRACE upon him. But why didn't the husband locate Elisha? Maybe PRiDE hindered him. He felt he was also a prophet like Elisha!

It’s amazing how Elisha ministered to her. The prophet asked her after her cry for help, “…What shall I do for thee? Tell me, WHAT HAST THOU iN THE HOUSE? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not anything in the house, save a pot of oil.” 2 Kings 4:2.

The HELP she was looking for, which would have saved her husband from untimely death, was right in their house…in their kitchen! It’s amazing how the Lord works.

She thought they had nothing; but the prophet asked her, “…WHAT HAST THOU iN THE HOUSE...” This is the way of the Spirit; this is how the Lord operates. You need not go far; look inward, the answer in you.

Her reply was negative; she despised what she had; she was focusing on size or the likes. That which she thought was nothing was what the Lord used to set her free! Your answer is not far from you. It’s iNSiDE you.

That “pot of oil” in your life has your miracle. Your next level is trapped in that “pot of oil”. TRADE with what you have; put ADEQUATE VALUE on it, then see your life RiSE in glory!

You will not see SHAME!
