INTRODUCTION: The state of any person who submits under God is to be blessed, and He desires to bless those who trust in His name for provision. If we are waiting for provision to start to move and build the Kingdom of God, we are eliminating faith from our walk with Him.
The Kingdom of God is not far-off nor something for those without sin or flaws.
God’s Kingdom is within us, accessible for all believers here on the earth, and there is absolutely no lack in the Kingdom of God.
The kingdom of God is at hand and therefore we need to believe that favour, miracles and blessings are for everyone.
It’s natural to face issues, struggles and go through tough times.
As Christians, we should not live in scarcity or lack.
We should not lack to understand how we can receive or live in the overflow of God.
The normal state of humans is to be blessed. Yet so many Christians walk in lack. (Genesis 1:28)
In all scriptures, we can evidently see God finding a reason to bless His people.
Scripture teaches us about God’s provision. (Psalm 37:25) God’s provision is for everyone.
Blessings are not connected to our emotions of joy and happiness.
God’s provision is having His good will and approval directed towards you.
If God blesses you, it means His approval is upon you. (Genesis 1:28)
We want to wait for goodness and mercy to follow us before we start moving but scripture teaches us that as we move it follows us. (Psalm 23:6)
Faith is to move without any evidence.
We require faith to move God.
We should not have anxiety or fear about anything. God will provide. (Psalm 23:2-3)
We should follow God, and as we follow Him, stuff will follow us.
CONCLUSION: We should understand how God’s Kingdom operates to walk in it. God has made us so that our entire existence glorifies Him on earth, and it is our responsibility to build His Kingdom. Blessings and miracles should not have to be evident in our lives so that we devote our lives to Christ. The moment we start following God, His blessings follow us. We do not have to chase it.
