Matthew 5:45-46 “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the EVIL AND ON THE GOOD and sendeth rain on the JUST AND ON THE UNJUST”. Psalm 145:9 “The LORD is GOOD TO ALL: and His tender mercies are OVER ALL HIS WORKS”.

ONE of the indisputable attributes of the Almighty God is HIS MAGNANIMITY and INFINITE BENEVOLENCE. The central creed of a particular religion hinges on the Benevolence of God. They declare in their prayers five times a day that, Allah is the Most Generous and Most Benevolent. Past history has revealed that this is working for them, as God has blessed the SONS of the Bond Woman, (the Arabs) and today, Hagar’s Well of Water (Gen. 21:19) has become Oil Wells found in most of the United Arab Emirates. God is absolutely Magnanimous, Generous, Gracious, Benevolent and Plenteous in mercy (Psalm 103:8 “The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy”). The Word of God declares that God gives generously without finding fault. James 1:5 says: “If anyone of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY AND UPBRAIDETH NOT and it shall be given to him”. JESUS tells us that God’s magnanimity does not discriminate in releasing His natural blessings on all mankind. Jehovah God makes His rain to fall on the just and the unjust. Even His Spiritual Blessings are available to “WHOSOEVER” will believe in the Redemption He has furnished, provided through the sacrifice of His Son JESUS CHRIST – the LAMB OF GOD. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that, He gave His only begotten Son that, WHOSOEVER believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”.
The implication of God’s magnanimity presents irrevocable opportunities for our prayers to be answered because God is rich and generous unto all those that call upon Him. Romans 10:12: “For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same LORD over all IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM”. In Matthew 15: 22-28, we saw a Canaanite woman, who was notorious for her peculiar sinful life. She came to JESUS for the healing and deliverance of her daughter. JESUS told her it is not good to cast the children’s bread to dogs. In other words, there are two categories of people on earth: Children and Human Dogs. This woman accepted being a dog and she dwelt heavily on the magnanimity of God. She said God’s generosity makes it IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIS CHILDREN TO EXHAUST the sumptuous bread provided by God the Father. So dogs have access to the sumptuous provision of the Magnanimous God. It is powerful to know that God’s children cannot exhaust the magnanimous sumptuous provision of God’s Special bread, while dogs also could not exhaust the BIG CRUMBS that fall from the Master’s table. Whoever you are, whatever your spiritual classification or disposition, reach out today and experience the Benevolence of God. Psalm 34:8 “O TASTE AND SEE THAT THE LORD IS GOOD: blessed is the man that trusteth in Him”. If you are a child of God, Colossians 1:12 declares that you have been made qualified through the Blood of JESUS to partake of the inheritance of saints in the Kingdom of God.

PRAYER: Father God, I praise You for Who You are. You are Good to all and Your tender mercies are over all Your works. Today, I Leverage on Your magnanimity, benevolence and generosity. I ask for Your intervention, provision and elevation in my life in the Holy Name of JESUS. I am always qualified and entitled to receive Your blessings through the Blood of JESUS.
