“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 KJV
Many times, divine instructions don’t make sense. Consequently, many of us have missed out on God’s purpose for us because every time we let our minds get in the way. We want to understand everything before we take a step and God doesn’t function that way. You can’t understand everything. If you understand everything, then you don’t need Him. God wants you to lean on Him every step of the way.
How can a poor widow woman feed the man of God, when all she had was just for her and her son? She didn’t understand it but she obeyed and she experienced the supernatural. My prayer is that you don’t let your mind get in the way because you must tap into the abundance that God has for you.
I have no doubt whatsoever in my mind that there is a brother somewhere, there is a sister somewhere; there is somebody somewhere in another part of the world that God is going to link you up with. You are going to be a channel of the flow of His abundance. You will just sit in your house and people will ask you how did it happen and you will say I can’t explain. If there is a time to obey God, this is the time.
The widow woman in 1 Kings 17 was making plans to die and not to live at all. “I am gathering two sticks”(v.12 KJV) to cook the last little meal. She had a scarcity mentality not an abundance mentality. Famine had so much affected her mind set that she did not think of the bigness of our God. My prayer is that God will blow your mind out of small mentality. You are bigger than you think! Your body is limiting you. I don’t care whether you are short, tall or big. You are bigger than your physical frame. Eternity is inside you.
