He's a God of Abundance

I have this devotion I read every morning and oh my it is so good..
Ps.23:5~ My cup runs over~
From my devotion for today~
Paul writes, "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think" (Eph.3:20) Our God is a God of abundance~! In Scripture, the overflowing cup is a powerful symbol. As long as your cup was kept full you were welcome. But if it sat empty the host was hinting that it was time to go. If he really enjoyed your company he kept filling it until it ran over the edge and down onto the table. Is your cup overflowing today? That means you're welcome at God's table, your seat is guaranteed, nobody can take your place, and your needs will be abundantly supplied. F.B. Meyer wrote: "Whatever the blessing in your cup, it's sure to run over. With God the calf is always the ftted calf, the robe is always the best robe, the joy is unspeakable, the peace passeth understanding. God's way is always characterized by overflowing bounty." So the last thing on earth we need to worry about is "making ends meet". Our cup overfows. Take grace for example; The more we see our sinfulness, the more we see God's abounding grace forgiving us" (Ro 5:20). To abound is to have a surplus~! The cup God gives overflows, with mercy. Are you afraid it will run dry? That your warranty will expire? That your mistakes are too great? No Way~! Before Parl became a Christian he went around persecuting, imprsoning and killing Christians. Yet he wrote, "Grace....was poured out on me abundantily" (1 Tim 1:14) Whatever you need today. God has ~~ in abundance. So ask, and believe Him for it~!
Wow~! that touched my heart.. God gives me blessings so abundantly I wouldn't be able to write them all onto a 9x10 piece of paper.
