I will send down showers in season; there will be showers of blessing.”
(Ezekiel 34:26)

DRINKING FROM THE SAUCER

We’re rich; but sometimes we don’t walk like it, talk like it, or even believe it. We see ourselves struggling to make ends meet; we notice others with the finer things in life; and we all of a sudden feel poor. We feel forsaken.

When we focus on the troublesome things in life, we fail to recognize all the good things spilling from our saucer.

If you’ve never heard of this phrase before it refers to someone drinking from a mug while holding a small saucer underneath to catch any liquid that falls out of the cup. Once they finish drinking from the mug, they have more to sip on from the contents that fell on the saucer; hence drinking from the saucer!

When it comes to the blessings of God we’re able to drink from our saucer because He liberally fills us with good things that there is a spill over into our lives; so after we’re done enjoying the good contents of one cup of blessing, there is an overflow left for our enjoyment!

We don’t have to beg for a blessing when there’s an surplus of his goodness, his provision, his wealth, and his love to drink from our saucer. The Psalmist was right when he said, “I have never seen the righteous forsaken, nor his children begging bread.” (Psalm 37:25). Our Father supplies all our needs and HE is always on time to bless His children!

If we look at our lives, we can honestly admit that we are reaping better than we have ever sowed to God. We have so many unclaimed blessings spilling from our saucer and God is waiting to see if we’ll claim them and praise Him!

Testify of the grace that you've been drinking from the saucer!
Testify of the peace that you've been drinking from the saucer!
Testify of the power that you've been drinking from the saucer!

Today, do we dare complain of what we lack, or do we boldly testify of all that we have?

As we give God ourselves in obedience, He gives an overflowing abundance of good things to us. And even if He stopped blessing us today, it’s okay because we’re already blessed enough…blessed with more of His grace and glory to sip from the saucer!
