BIBLE READING: PROVERBS 6:4-11
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going.” Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NKJV)
Still on the subject of faith, I know that one major reason why God’s people are not able to receive the benefits of Grace and take advantage of the things that Jesus died to purchase for us on the Cross of Calvary is that, they don’t have a strategic Platform.
After you have prayed to God for that provision, bound the the devil not to interfere with the supply, you have sown seeds and decreed using your authority as a believer, deployed Angels on assignment to deliver the provisions you ordered, and commanded men to act in your favour, then you must take strategic action or engage via a Platform that will host or be a channel for the expected provisions. Faith for the miraculous is activated at the point of obedience and taking action. “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” James 2:26 (NKJV)
In other words, after you have prayed and commanded the resources to come into your hand, make sure that there is something that you are doing that will act as a springboard or platform to bring God’s blessings your way. God has said in His Word that He will bless the works of your hand. But if there is nothing to be blessed, you would still end up with nothing, hence the need to be strategically engaged in the marketplace.
Everybody should have an enterprise that they are engaged in and not be idle. The scripture says that he who does not work should not eat. We have also been admonished to “work” out and not to “wait” for our miracles. Learn the virtue of hard work, the dignity in labour, and God will bless you richly in Jesus name.
Father I repent for violating your principles by leaving everything for you and not doing my part. Lord teach me to value hard work, give me ideas to develop strategic and solution-driven Platform to meet human needs, that will in turn provide my expected resources in Jesus Name.
