1 Chronicles 29:11-12
11Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and Yours it is to be exalted as Head over all. 12Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hands are power and might; in Your hands it is to make great and to give strength to all.

1 Chronicles 29:14
14But who am I, and what are my people, that we should retain strength and be able to offer thus so willingly? For all things come from You, and out of Your own [hand] we have given [back to] You.

2 Chronicles 1:7-12
7 That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, Ask what I shall give you. 8 And Solomon said to God, You have shown great mercy and loving-kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place. 9 Now, O Lord God, let Your promise to David my father be fulfilled, for you have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude. 10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge to go out and come in before this people, for who can rule this Your people who are so great? 11 God replied to Solomon, Because this was in your heart and you have not asked for riches, possessions, honor, and glory, or the life of your foes, or even for long life, but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may rule and judge My people over whom I have made you king, 12 Wisdom and knowledge are granted you. And I will give you riches, possessions, honor, and glory, such as none of the kings had before you, and none after you shall have their equal.

John 1:16
16 For out of His [God’s] fullness (abundance) we have all received one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift.

1 Corinthians 2:9
9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].

1 Corinthians 2:12
12 Now we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God.

In 1 Chronicles 29, King Solomon recognizes that all excellent things first come from God’s hands before we are enabled to give to Him.

If you read 2 Chronicles 1:7-12, you’ll quickly realize why King Solomon felt this way. He had asked God for wisdom and knowledge. Take a moment to inventory all that the all-generous God placed upon him in response.

The best word to describe the generosity of God is “lavish.” Ephesians 3:20 details the concept.

Think about what the word “lavish” means to you, and then find the word in these Bible verses presented here today.

John 1:16 describes God’s lavish generosity, and 1 Corinthians 2:12 ends by encouraging us all to “realize, comprehend, and appreciate the gifts of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly bestowed on us by God.”

Why not take a few moments right now to appreciate the gifts of divine favor and blessing which have so freely been lavished upon you?

Ephesians 3:20
20 Now to Him [God] Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]—
