God Will Provide…
God wants to prosper us, so that we will be able to accomplish the work He has given us of discipling the world. We are called to reap the spiritual benefits of the world, and we need resources to do this. God prosper us under the New Covenant which is sealed by the blood of Jesus?
In our covenant relationship, God is our Father and as His children we have direct access to Him. Whatever we need to accomplish the task He has given us, He will provide it.
Jesus said: “Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you … ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:23-24).
Jesus also declared: “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” (Matthew 7:9-11).
I got excited when I paid attention to the words “how much more”? I thought what if you and I applied this to our financial situation: -How much more will our Heavenly Father supply our financial needs! -How much more will our Heavenly Father prosper us!
How much more will our Heavenly Father use us to extend His Kingdom!
God wants to bring us out of financial bondage into a new position of strength in our finances where we are looking to Him as our source and depending upon His divine provision to accomplish supernatural purposes.
Before we can fulfill God’s purposes in this kingdom building assignment, we must have a breakthrough where we are no longer depending upon our own limited abilities, but we are looking to God for His supernatural provision. We must stop focusing on our resources and our materialistic desires and place our focus on His Kingdom.
When Jesus first commissioned His disciples and sent them out on a discipleship campaign to make champions 4 christ by preaching the Kingdom of God and healing the sick, He sent them without money or food. He told them, “Take nothing for the journey-no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic” (Luke 9:3).
I wondered, why did Jesus send His disciples out with nothing? After some thought I believe He did this so they would learn to depend upon God’s supernatural provision. He did not want them to trust in their own limited resources, but to draw from God’s unlimited power.
As they went from city to city, God supernaturally provided their needs. There was divine provisions and they did not lack anything. Later, Jesus asked them, “When I sent you out with no purse or (provision) bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” They answered, “Nothing!” (Luke 22:35).
Jesus sent the disciples out with nothing, but they lacked nothing! That is truly divine provision! YES!!! GOD WILL PROVIDE!
