GOD'S PILL 2016: CAPSULE 17

THE PROVISION IS ALWAYS MORE ABUNDANT THAN THE NEED

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 KJV

We are now on the third guiding principle, the first two are 1. 'God is my source, God is my only source 2. God has anticipated all my needs and made provision before the need arose'. All the principles as you will find out are interdependent and interactive for each to be effective. They are not steps or formulas, these are spiritual habits and lifestyle. Don't feel condemned if initially you falter, remember I told you in capsule 14 that they are supposed to be internal compass, none of us do anything perfectly. What is key is that you must not explain your lapse away or come up with excuses like some do. As you walk in them, with time they become habits (Proverbs 4:18, Galatians 5:16). I really would like to express my gratitude to everyone that sent a link to their social media site, thank you, our labour is not in vain.

Now to the third principle (which in actual fact is contingent on your understanding the previous two), 'THE PROVISION OR SUPPLY, IS ALWAYS MORE ABUNDANT THAN THE NEED'. God wants to meet your need, such that the supply surpass and is in excess of the requirement. Unfortunately we limit Him with our small thinking (myself included), that is the commentary of Ephesians 3:20. Look at our index scripture John 10:10 KJV

''The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

It would have been just fine if Christ had said 'I am come that they might have life'. No! Just enough, is never enough with God, He is El Shaddai, not El-Cheapo! When God supplies your need, He does not want there to be any doubt about the source. I know this is mind blowing, and I will explain further. The crucial thing is to find His purpose for your life and walk in it, don't be a follow, follow (2 Corinthians 10:12).

The concept of the pill does not allow for too much space but I will give you two great examples to cement this principle. If you consider Adam, the first man, can you imagine what it was like in garden of Eden? He had all his needs met well before he showed up, and everything was well beyond what he could ever exhaust. For instance, the oxygen supply that was created for Adam is what the current 7 billion human population of today is still using. Look at all the precious stones and metals that were already available (Genesis 2:8-15), What was he going to do with them? Yet God made all these available, it beats the imagination.

The second example, the greatest challenge or need that ever face the human race is the payment for Sin of the fall. Adam the first man fell and we became a lawful captive of Satan. For God to redeem us, an equal price had to be paid. Remember, before the fall, Adam was sinless, not only that he had dominion over all the earth (Genesis 1:26-28). Now consider the payment, Christ. Not only did He have a sinless body, His dominion is in three spheres, the Heaven, Earth and underneath the earth (Philippians 2:9-11). The payment so overwhelmed the price, that it has silenced the devil forever! We lost one thing in Adam, but gained three in Jesus Christ.

There is no need that you have that God has not anticipated, and provided in excess of requirement. Job got back twice what he lost, Naaman's skin changed from leprosy to that of a baby, the Israelites moved from captivity and slavery to occupy land and houses built by Giants! The question is whether you and I dare believe and are confident enough to stretch and reach-out. This is not the exception , it is actually the norm, it is the perfect design of God, that is His way of doing things. This applies to every aspect of your life, freedom from sin, and demonic oppression, vibrant health and material prosperity........after all He is El-Shaddai. When you understand that the supply from God always far outstrips the need, then we will understand why Christ said

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” ‭‭John‬ ‭14:12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

CONCLUSION
WITH GOD THE SUPPLY IS ALWAYS EXCEEDINGLY, ABUNDANTLY, ABOVE THE NEED, SO DON'T LIMIT HIM.

Ps
I am looking for at least 50 partners that would commit to link the blog to their social media site every week so that we get the word out there.
