GOD'S PILLS 2016: CAPSULE 15

WALKING IN THE SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY OF GOD:
GOD IS MY SOURCE, GOD IS MY ONLY SOURCE!

“After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.” Genesis 15:1 KJV

Welcome back, with this capsule we start with the first principle for 'Walking in the supernatural supply of God'. For me these are none negotiable, everyone of us desires to see great things happen to us in our Christian walk, we want to see the words of the bible come alive in our situation. The problem is very few people know how and even very few still like to commit to it. We are happy to try it but not live it. The spiritual will always dominate the physical, but both are governed by laws, nothing just happens.

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 KJV

You must be resolute and unshakable in your trust that God is your source. The Apostle Paul knew this, when he wanted to bless the church at Philippi he knew the source to draw from.....'my God..' This statement acknowledges that God exist and that you are not HIM. And if He is your source, then it makes you humble and on the other hand leads to uncommon confidence. Think about it, the creator of Heaven, Earth and all that exists is your supply, that frees you completely from the earthly fluctuations (Psalm 24:1). The beauty about this, is that it affects every aspect of your life (freedom from sin and demonic oppression, divine health and material wealth), it's a 360 degree insurance cover.

The reason why some Christians compromise and soil there hands when they get to position of influence is because they have not come to appreciate this truth. Hence they have the fear of reversal of fortune, they see their opportunity as limited. I have seen it over and over, temptation will entice and expose your insecurities. Unfortunately, I have seen Christians also run away from position of responsibility and influence because they are not sure they will be able to withstand the temptation, this also is an ungodly concept. Temptation can only expose what is already on the inside of you, it is virtually impossible to tempt someone who knows GOD IS HIS SUPPLY. See what Joseph said to Potiphar's wife, 'how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” Genesis 39:9b KJV. This is a concept that is missing with most present day Christians. This statement of Joseph goes to the heart of Joseph's identity. The sin would be against God primarily because he sees himself as employed by God, not Potiphar per se (Ephesians 6:5-8). When you know that God is your source, you will not be a man-pleaser or practice eye service, you will approach and do everything with the spirit of excellence. Men will give you award (which is temporary), but God rewards (which is eternal) Hebrews 11:6 KJV.

‭‭“Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: Psalm 16:4a KJV

Not only should God be your source, God should be your ONLY source, you cannot have God and.....(Romans 11:6), it does no work, in fact it leads to identity crisis and multiplication of sorrow. Abraham was faced with the same dilemma twice in Genesis 13:8-12 and 14:21-24, he did not want any doubt about the source of his supply. On both occasions God showed up (Genesis 13:14-17 and 15:1), look at Genesis 15:1 KJV

After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy EXCEEDING GREAT REWARD

CONCLUSION
IF GOD IS YOUR ONLY SOURCE, HEAVEN IS YOUR SUPPLY HERE ON EARTH!
