“And Solomon had twelve governors over all Israel, who provided food for the king and his household; each one made provision for one month of the year.” I Kings 4:7
Brothers and sisters, it’s not enough for us to claim the promises of God, we must have plans. God will surely supply all our needs; His word cannot be broken; but the Bible also says that anyone who doesn’t work shouldn’t eat. We are expected to use the wisdom and strength given to us by God, and then God causes all that we do to prosper.
It’s not also enough to work; you must plan and strategize how to utilize your resources, else you will still beg. But that’s not the will of God for us. The ants “labor hard all summer, gathering food for the winter.” Proverbs 6:8. What’s your own strategy for provision?
You know the things that you need to do: bills, fees, feeding, rent, etc; you need to have systems and means of providing for them. You don’t eat up everything you get and start “believing God” for supply. God supplied but you mismanaged His supply! Walk in wisdom from today so you never have to lack. You are full of God’s wisdom; use it!
