You are here: Home GOD’S PRINCIPLE FOR PROVIDING
It is well acceptable unto the LORD for doing so, but one thing is necessary to acknowledge when seeking help in prayers from Him, because He has His own principle for providing: and to acknowledge this stuff facilitate any request that are placed before Him, said the scripture. ‘’ Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine’’. Exo.19:5. One of the major reasons why believers should place their request in accordance with God’s principle, it base on His foundational standard, which had been bridge by Adam the first man from the beginning of age in the Garden of Eden, Gen.3:6-19, this prompted Lord Jesus and He came to put it right that men would know the best option to follow, said. ‘’For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me’’. John.6:38, this written gives good method on how should one portrait his/her heart and meet with God’s will for providing. Lord Jesus demands for a perfect heart which acknowledge the necessary things to ask for when placing our request before God, mostly at this dispensation of end time; He taught the most perfect method on how to apply for basic need when seeking help from God, He said; ‘’If ye abide in me, and my word abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you’’. John.15:7. To abide in the Lord’s teaching become a leading way that open one’s eyes to know the real thing that is compulsory to ask for when praying for needs; but forming an attitude of dictating for God is fleshly will that cannot yield any good result, because God alone is He that knows the end from the beginning. Isaiah.46:10 and knows exactly what we really need at any periods of lacking: He had promised to give unto whoever that ask according to His willful purpose, only if one would wait patiently is the best way to receive. Isaiah.40:31. Lord Jesus encourages the kind of attitude and taught over it, urging believers to humble themselves as little children attitude unto their parents when seeking help from them, and I believe no good children had ever dictates for his/her parent when seeking helping hand from them, and good parent always give whatever that is good to their children, because they know better than they do; or can a man give a car to little child under ten years to rid, because he/she asked for it? Likewise Lord Jesus is encouraging all that believes in God to exercise patience and ask wisely in terms of placing their request before Him, He said. ‘’If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children; how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him? Luke.11:13. Let believers see God as everlasting Father, and to receive any good thing from Him amount help of the Holy Spirit which knows the heart of God, and as well as our heart is open unto Him shall facilitate any request we placed before the LORD: since God cannot be forced to do otherwise, should believers humble themselves when comes to seeking help from Him, He does whatever that pleases Him till life indefinite. Isaiah.45:7-9. This reminds me the history of Israelite in the wilderness: though they were lacking food to eat, thirst for water to drink, nevertheless, God is aware of those things they lacked, but yet, His expectation was that they should endure for such periods of hardship, that when they had finally arrived the Promised Land would give way for merriment. It is unfortunate that these men could not wait patiently, instead they began to murmured and were demanded for delicacies which they had used to eat in the land of bondage (Egypt) such as onions, cucumber, garlic, flesh, etc. and God commanded Moses to give them what they wants according to their lustful heart and sweet mouth. Behold, as they began to eat the flesh right away in their mouth, the wrath of God was kindle against them and He placed great curse upon them that many of the people died in the wilderness that same day, which become the reward of greed’s and lust for pleasure things. Read the scripture to learn more about God’s principle in terms of providing. Numbers.11:4-6, 16, 33. Many believers of nowadays are suffering for such attitude because they thought it’s by many prayers they offered would change God principle from which He had proposed in His heart to do, ‘’never’’. Matt.6:5-13, James.4:1-3, and when answer hasn’t come the way they wants because of lustful will of their heart desire, they quickly switch into manipulating things and get it done faster as they wanted. On this platform had the wicked one formed his own congregation, and had trained ministers for such purposes that they may encourage men how to manipulate things and get what they wants quickly, even when it seemed evil unto the LORD. Am yet to understand if heavenly kingdom’s matter relies on riches and worldly wealth as many people thought it is? If it is, means the scripture had failed believers, but now is the truth made perfect: ‘’For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost’’. Roman.14:17. I concentrate to this written as matter of fact that proved the point concern the kingdom of heaven which shows it doesn’t rely on things of this world, but righteousness takes lead that guide it entrance: Lord Jesus addresses this issue in many occasions and gave reason why believers should cation themselves in terms of seeking God’s help in order to ask for the necessary thing that collaborate with this periods of end time. It happened that one among His disciples came to Him, seeking for help how he may get his own shares from his father’s inheritance. ‘’And he said unto them. Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consist not in the abundance of the things which he possessed’’. Luke.12:15. Another point to observe is the certain written which does pronounced blessing upon His disciples, even the less privilege poor people who had not advantage into this present world riches and wealth, but which they hold on to God promises of things in heavenly kingdom; He assure them of greater rewards that are laid down for them in due time. Luke.6:20-23. Many evidences are recorded in the Bible that kicked against the attitude of urging for earthly treasures, the Bible condemned such attitude as negative approach to heavenly kingdom’s agenda. Why many careless Christians will miss heaven? Is because of those worldly materials things they long for at all cost; those things do entangled many believers and are dragging them into bondage of greed with hateful lust without a way out? May God have mercy, Amen? The wicked one welcomes such idea, because he had forcefully hijacked riches and wealth of this present world into his own possession, he is boosting to give it unto anyone who succumbs to his worshiped, and he does give to them as he promised. Ezekiel.28:2-6, 13-19, Luke.4:5-7. Let this truth sink down into your heart beloved, and get understand in those things that are necessary to have for now, and see the clear picture of God’s heart desire for this lasting generation of man, Lord Jesus made parable on this issue and said. ‘’The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain King, which made a marriage for His Son. And sent forth His servants to call them that were bidden to the marriage: and they would not come. … Then said He to the servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the high-ways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. … And when the King came in to see the guests, He saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment. And He said unto him, friend, how comes thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the King to the servants. Bind him hand and foot, and take him away and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called but few are chosen’’. Matt.22:1-2, 8-14. One should acknowledge what had happened to this fellow among others which led to his casting away into outer darkness. Lord Jesus made clear the explanation and He said: ‘’He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heard the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful’’ Matt.13:22. Many believers had been deceived by the wicked one, urging them to lust for riches and wealth, which shall deprived them in the judgment, because their wedding garment had stained through the cares of this world and deceitfulness of riches, this shall cause them to be thrown out into damnation of hell fire. Rev.22:14-15. Seeking materials things more than the kingdom’s agenda has become a plot against many careless Christians who found of seeking riches and wealth at expense of life; this hasn’t been the will of Christ for His follower, He gave all it takes for the kingdom of God sake, even till death of the cross He did, and taught believers to do the same. Philippians.2:5-11, Rev.2:10. I got to know the particular problems that are dragging some believers into foolishness; mainly, the wicked one had blindfolded many into lust of material things of the world that they may not see the danger that are attached with riches and wealth of the moment; the Bible disclose fact. ‘’And Jesus said, for judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind’’. John.9:39. I rise to conclusion according to this written and am asking: if Adam’s eyes had been opened to glorious things of the Garden of Eden, he wouldn’t have accepted his wife offer and took of the forbidden fruit and did eat, which caused him shame and he hide from the presence of God in those days: but since he was been deceived to long for uncertainty that would not long last, such as food, position, and power. Gen.3:6, this act become reproach unto human race that had deprived men from God’s glorious kingdom, and were switched on to vile glory of this world. The beginning of open eye was when the first born of the earth (Cain) discovered that his brother (Abel) does make progress because God had respect on him and his offering; and Cain rise against his brother Abel and killed him because he had made success. Gen.4:1-10, in which had become the reward of open eye till today: for men eyes had opened into iniquities that caused them greed and lust, which constitutes to killing one another for selfish purposes through lust of heart desire in human. Look at the entire world today and ask yourself, what is all this killing for? Is there not enough land on earth that contains human without disturbing one another? If enough space are provided by God still, why killing one another for vile glory that shall soon be destroyed? It is a pity because truth had hid from many believers who seek for worldly glory than the kingdom’s glory. Matt.24:35, 2Peter.3:7-13, 1John.2:15-17. The fact remain that few people are they be who find the true way of God’s kingdom and shall be given unto them for the reward of their patience Luke.21:19. Lord Jesus called for turning point, He said. ‘’Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leaded to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leaded unto life, and few there be that find it’’. Matt.7:13-14. Don’t be carry away as to follow evil men of this age, the accurate hour has come and all that believes in God’s kingdom should know the will of God for this dispensation of lasting generation and one should ask for things that are necessary wisely that he/she may obtain the mercy of God. Find the narrow way that leads into the kingdom of heaven which is the way of righteousness, and you shall reap everlasting life in return, for the hour is set Lord Jesus come quickly without any delay, the only alternative now is to seek the LORD’s will in all your endeavor and get saved. Amen.
Jesus is Lord.
