What do I have?

“Elisha replied to her, ‘How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?'” 2 Kings 4:2

A widow from among the prophets was about to lose her two sons to a creditor. Elisha asked what she had and worked with that. He told her to pour the little oil she had into jars. The oil kept flowing until all the jars were filled. She was able to sell the oil, pay her debts and live on the rest.

God uses what we have, no matter how small. Like the two fish and five loaves of the New Testament, He is able to multiply it to feed a crowd. He doesn’t ask for what we don’t have, but looks for faithfulness with what we’ve been given. He does the rest.

Our part is being faithful with what we have.

What does He ask of me? What do I have.

And…my new rose bush has this one little bloom, but look what one little bloom can do.
