Apostle Grace Lubega
2 Corinthians 9:8 (KJV); And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
The grace that the Lord has given us is that we abound to every good work. I learnt this truth many years ago while still studying at university and I have been exercising myself in this spiritual discipline since.
Every time I heard that there was a work being undertaken for the sake of the gospel, as led by God, I always gave something. I never allowed a cause that was rightly aimed at building the Kingdom of God pass me by without my contribution.
I had very little back then. My income was the pocket money given to me by my father. But if I heard that a church was building and needed some funds, I gave the little that I could, even if all it could buy was a single brick.
I have grown in this grace and God has trusted me with more for the sake of His Kingdom.
If there are street children to be fed, have your part in that. If there are widows to be supported, make a contribution. If there are prisoners to be ministered to, let your part be evident.
It is never about how much is on your bank account but the fact that the sufficiency is of God. It is He who makes you abound and will always multiply your seed.

PRAYER: Father, I thank You for today’s word. It is You who gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater. You always do exceedingly abundantly above that which I ever hope or expect. I choose to live in the consciousness of constant abundance because I know who my source is, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
