Do not strive for riches, but for the blessing
Become the best version of yourself and never allow anyone to make you complain before God * Do not strive for riches, but for the blessing, because when God blesses you His blessings is permanent * Every where you fail, God succeeds.
The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
Genesis 1:2, 26-28.
We serve a God who is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent and nothing is impossible to Him, He can create, recreate and restore anything, anywhere, anytime, He can create anything and everything out of nothing. The above first scripture portion tells us that the earth was without form, void and dark. The second scripture portion tells us that God created man in His image and likeness ( We are God class, tell yourself I am God class ) and the third scripture portion tells us about the blessings that God spoke over Adam and Eve.
God knows and sees the end from the beginning, the first chapter tells us about the creation of the earth and the entire universe and then the creation of Adam and Eve. God created the provision even before the need and problem arose, He created light before Adam, because He knew that Adam would require sunlight in the day and moonlight in the night, so He created sun, moon and stars even before He created Adam. God created the green herbs and fruits even before He created Adam, because He knew that Adam would require food to eat, after creating the provision for man then He created Adam. Adam never asked God for a life partner/ helper, but God knew the need and brought forth Eve and gave her to Adam to be his helper. God created the provision even before He created Adam and Eve, so that they could enjoy the provision and they were placed in the garden of Eden ( means unending supply).
Many times when we go through problems and challenges in the area of provision in our lives, we don’t rely on God for our provision, we try things on our own in our own ways and when we fail in our strength then we turn to God for help and when we don’t receive our provision according to our time table then we start doubting God’s provision simply forgetting that God has always created the provision even before the need or problem arises. Nothing is a surprise to God even before He created Adam and Eve, He knew that they would fall that is why He had planned and prepared the sacrifice of His Son Jesus even before the foundations of the earth were laid, even before a problem arose, God had already planned and prepared an answer and solution to the problem.
Adam and Eve fell and sin crept in and they lost fellowship with God and their provision was cut off and they were asked to leave the garden of Eden ( unending supply ). In the new covenant God restored mankind’s lost relationship with Him through His Son Jesus. Jesus met every need of mankind on the cross of Calvary, He paid the price with His precious blood and redeemed man from sin, sickness, poverty and death. God met every need of mankind through His Son Jesus that is why Jesus said on the cross ” It is finished “. Many of us don’t even know that we are already blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, we run after the blessing instead of running after God who has already blessed us. The secret to receive all our provision from God is to seek God, His kingdom and His righteousness then all we ask, seek, need and desire will be added unto us ( Matthew 6:33 ), we need not run after the provision, but the provision will come searching for us.
In these trying, testing and troubled times that the entire world is going through, because of the deadly virus everything around man has failed and fallen miserably. Money, medicine, power, influence, name, fame and economy has failed miserably. It is the love, grace, goodness, mercy and compassion of God that though people are affected with this deadly virus and even though there is no cure, remedy and medicine for it, God is healing many people from this deadly virus, He is protecting many from getting the virus and even though the entire world is come to a stand still, He is providing every one from His kingdom riches. It is time that the people in the world turn from their ways and look to God for health, healing, protection, provision and salvation of their souls.
Beloved you are blessed ( past tense not present tense nor future tense, but past tense ). You are already blessed, tell the devil I am already blessed. Be a God lover and chaser and blessings will chase you wherever you are and to wherever you will go.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.
Heavenly Father thank You for the word, Thank You that all our needs and provision are met even before the need and problem arises, Thank You for every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places through Christ Jesus, Give us the grace to seek and follow You all the days of our lives in Jesus name we ask and pray.
Amen and Amen.
God loves you
