Is God Stingy?

Romans 8:13,32 So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us. He even let his own Son suffer for us. God gave his Son for all of us. So now with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.

Is God Stingy?

Have there been times in your life, when you’ve really longed for something, and yet God hasn’t shown up? So let me ask you, is God stingy, or generous?

Have you ever felt that God’s holding back on you? There’s something you really want: the right marriage partner, a baby, moving on to something new in your life, whatever, but it’s just not happening. Why isn’t God giving me the breakthrough I so desperately want?

And you start thinking to yourself, “I wonder if God’s being a bit stingy with me here?” It’s so incredibly frustrating, even hurtful, when there just doesn’t seem to be a good reason for God to be holding back the blessing.

So, even though everything else in our lives may be going fantastically well, our focus narrows to just this one thing. And at that point, you lose sense of the big picture.

So let’s just stand back for a moment and take a look at the big picture.

Romans 8:13,32 So what should we say about this? If God is for us, no one can stand against us. And God is with us. He even let his own Son suffer for us. God gave his Son for all of us. So now with Jesus, God will surely give us all things.

Big picture? We turned our backs on God, but because He loves us so much, He offered up the greatest thing, the most valuable thing that He had to give, His Son, as the price for bringing us back.

So, do you still thing that God is stingy? Look, He won’t always do the things we’re longing for. Sometimes He has different plans, better plans. But without doubt, He will always give you His very best.

God will surely give us all things

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
