More Than Enough

I see the need,
these people need to eat.
What can I do?
What have I got?

This is what I offer
to you
for God
to use.

It may not look like enough
to our eyes,
but in God’s hands
there is more than enough.
But it needs
to be offered,
given,
released
to his use.

The hungry are fed
and there is some left over.

Great is our God
who deals in abundance.

Lord,
I see a need,
but do I act?
Do I give?
Share what I have?
Allow you to take
and multiply
generously?

What I have,
may I give
for you
to take
and use,
to feed
and restore.

2 Kings 4:42-44 (CEV)

Elisha Feeds One Hundred People

42 A man from the town of Baal-Shalishah brought Elisha some freshly cut grain and twenty loaves of bread made from the first barley that was harvested. Elisha said, “Give it to the people so they can eat.”

43 “There’s not enough here for a hundred people,” his servant said.

“Just give it to them,” Elisha replied. “The Lord has promised there will be more than enough.”

44 So the servant served the bread and grain to the people. They ate and still had some left over, just as the Lord had promised.
