THE POWER TO WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVE LEFT
“But you will receive power [to work with what you have left] when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, [Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC] and in all Judea [from Florida to Canada] and Samaria, [from West, VA to California] and to the ends of the earth. [The rest of the world]” (Acts 1:8)
“The LORD said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the others go home.” So Gideon sent the rest of the Israelites home but kept the three hundred, [what he had left] who took over the provisions and trumpets of the others. Now the camp of Midian lay below him in the valley.” (Judges 7:7-8)
“Don’t call me Naomi,” she told them. “Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. I went away full, but the LORD has brought me back empty. [What she had left] Why call me Naomi? The LORD has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.” (Ruth 1:20-21)
“Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. [Don’t walk by sight] Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour [what you have left] will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the LORD sends rain on the land.” (1Kings 17:13-14)
“The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, [what he had left] “Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted. Go; walk through the length and breadth of the land, for I am giving it to you.” So Abram went to live near the great trees of Mamre at Hebron, where he pitched his tents. There he built an altar to the LORD.” (Genesis 13:14-18)
