Using what is at hand

I Kings 4:2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.

When God wanted to work a miracle in the life of this lady, He does so with what she has in the house. He took what she had and blessed it. You know the story. She had some oil. She borrowed pots and pans. God made the oil fill all that she could get her hands on. She sold the oil and lived from that income. God blessed her greatly.

God wants to work in your life as well. He will most likely use what you already have. You do not need something else you need to trust Him with what you have. Give God your heart, life, and all you own. Let God use it and bless you for His honor and glory.
