DIVINE SUFFICIENCY



Regardless of the financial problems you are facing, God promises divine provision

wherein you will lack nothing. Paul told the Corinthians: "And God is able to make all

grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may

abound to every good work" (2 Corinthians 9:8).


Note the word "sufficiency" in this verse. God has promised that you will have all

sufficiency in all things so that you can do every good work that you need to do. Here is

the key to experience this sufficiency:


Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and

multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness; Being

enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us

thanksgiving to God. (2 Corinthians 9:10-11)


Note the words "multiply" and "increase" in these verses. God has promised to multiply

what you give so that not only will your needs be met, but you will be able to sow

additional resources into the Kingdom of God. Even in times of economic famine, you

will experience increase if you walk in obedience to God.


For the next few days, we will examine this truth as we follow in the footsteps of the

Prophet Elijah. In 1 Kings 17, there is a tremendous example of divine provision during

an economic famine. At the time of this account, there was a great drought throughout

the land. It was judgment from God because of the sins of the people. The heavens were

shut up and there was no rain, fulfilling the Word of the Lord spoken by the prophet

Elijah. The land was barren and parched and the crops withered in the fields.


After Elijah's prophetic declaration regarding the coming drought and famine, God

directed His servant to go to a brook called Cherith where he would receive supernatural

provision. Elijah might have questioned, "How am I going to get food out here by a

little brook? I did what God told me to do and now I am being sent to a remote location

where there will be no food. I will be there all by myself and I am surely going to die."

Is that what Elijah said? No! First Kings 17:5 tells us that Elijah ..."went and did

according unto the word of the Lord."


God may be telling you to take certain steps of faith during your own famine. Maybe you

haven't expanded your business because you have been paying too much attention to the

financial horror stories in the news. Perhaps you have been afraid to tithe in obedience to

God's Word because you fear it will cause personal lack. In times of economic or

spiritual famine, you must listen only to God and act upon the direction He gives you.


PRAYER:


My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
