The Universe Is an Eat All You Can Buffet Table
“You do not have, because you do not ask” – James 4:2
I’ve come across with this eat-all-you-can buffet analogy from one of the books of Bro. Bo Sanchez, a preacher, leader and entrepreneur in the Philippines who authored more than 40 bestselling books.
We all know that in an Eat All You Can restaurant, we can eat all the food and drinks served on that buffet table. All we need to do is to get and grab the food and drinks that we want.
But let us assume that you’re not aware about Eat All You Can, and one of your friends invited you and pay for you without knowing that you can eat all the food in the buffet.
You just came from the far away barrio and you are not sure about what to do in the restaurant.
You just waited inside and when you felt hungry, you ask the waiter, when will they give me food?
The waiter replied, “Sir, this is an Eat All You Can Buffet and customers go to the table and get what they want.” You are shocked since this is the first time you’ve ever been into this place. You ask the waiter, I can just get what I want? The waiter smiles, “Yes Sir”.
You stands up and walks toward the buffet. You ask the waiter again, Can I get this food? Can I grab this dessert? and drink this juice? The waiter replied, “Sir, you don’t have to ask my permission to get anything. Just go ahead and get it. All the food on the table is potentially yours. All you have to do is grab it.”
My friend, everything we need is here, available to us on God’s buffet table of blessings.
Every Blessing on the Table is Potentially Yours
All the wisdom you need.
All the friends you need.
All the joy and happiness and fulfillment you need.
All the money you need.
All the resources you need.

Every blessing in the universe is potentially yours. Our problem is that we’re sitting with our empty plates, still waiting for the blessing. We need to stand up and grab the blessing.
