Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all things shall be added unto you....Matthew 6:33
How many of us are in the position of great need? Provision from the Lord is life and Life more abundantly! How do we recognize when we need the supernatural attention of God in the areas of our life where we are lacking? When you have run around in circles, exhausted every avenue? What happens when we get to the point of overwhelm, desperation? Is it finally then when we cry out, call out to God? Yes, usually this is the case. God wants to assure us that He is capable, especially when we are not. He wants to be the the first responder in our emergency and He wants us to be aware that He is where all blessings flow from. Praise and prays! Thank you Lord for my need and thank you Lord for meeting it, exceeding it!
"I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." —John 10:10
How do we usher in the provision of God? We usher it in through faith, obedience, praise, prayer and surrender.
There is one lesson in the bible that comes to mind;
1 Kings 17:7-16 the accounting of the Widow of Zeraphath during the time of drought in the region of Sidon at that time...
- The widow of Zeraphath represents those of us who are in a position of need.
- The Oil represents the anointing
- The bread is sustenance. The Lord is the bread of life.
She was promised that the jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil would not run dry until the day the Lord gives rain upon the land; this speaks to us about the drought times in life. I also suppose that at this point, faced with her meager leftovers, that a portion of it gone would not be much different than the end result. It is this very act that transitions from personal hardship to above and beyond her own circle. She trusted and put faith in that word, she went and did as the prophet said; trusting in the word sent to her by God. We need to step up in faith, giving to the Lord that trust; it is the Tithe of Belief (give Him credit as the one who can and the one who will) Believe to receive!
Paul writes that "if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's offspring, heirs according to promise." (Galatians 3:29 )My God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)Psalm 77:14 “You are the God who performs miracles; You display your power among the peoples.”
We need to come into Unity with His word, through strong faith, deep need, total praise and thankfulness. A release within the release, a friend recently mentioned to me. This speaks to me on so many levels. We have to let our abilities and striving take the backseat when it comes time to let God drive us over that finish line. Release your trust, release your praise and worship toward the Lord, recognize this as the only effective action you can take... motions will resume but this time fueled with the knowledge that God can put the High in your octane, accelerating the onset of every need being met; personal, financial and situational.
Heavenly Father, I thank you for the times of great need that you have placed me in. I can see how great and merciful you are as in times past when my need exceeded my ability and then you rushed in to comfort and sustain me. I pray that I shall always remain just as sure of You no matter what life may present to me. I have been high and I have been low but I fully know that you are here with me, wherever I may go! I promise to you this day, with the greatest of ease because I know You are unfailing...that I shall always trust in You. Trust, faith and assurity; when they are turned over to you, are the begins of great things. Thank you Lord for trials of life that have shown me How truly amazing you are. Thank you for using them to bring me great blessings for they also strengthened me that I might help others. I am grateful for the position I have with You; your beloved child, forever indebted, blissfully happy and secured for all eternity! In the Mighty name of Yehushua, Our Lord and Savior AMEN
