A young man was instructed by God to give his entire salary as a seed for the next 12 months. The instruction, though looked crazy and difficult, was clear enough to be understood. He obeyed. After 6 months, someone called him that he was instructed by God to buy him a house. He has learnt to unlock divine provisions.

Friend, divine provision is real. You can live life looking for provisions or you live life looking for God and enjoying His provisions (Matthew 6:33). The truth is, your life or destiny is too big to be funded by you. You are a divine project, your contractor is God; He plans to fund you. There is a scriptural way to enjoy divine supply and surplus.

“But you shall remember the Lord your God for it is He that gives you power to get wealth…” (Deuteronomy 8:18). God is the provider of wealth. Human beings are mere channels. Your salary is not your source; God is your source, He only works through your salary and He can choose to bypass it. If you only live by your salary then you are currently living lesser than God planned, no matter how big it is.

Finance is a battle. Money is spiritual. This is one truth the devil wants to shield you from. Notice that after the prophecy about prosperity in the famous Zechariah 1:17 verse, there was a satanic battle raised to truncate its fulfilment (Zechariah 1:18-21). This is why people often wonder why their financial life seems under attack shortly after a prophetic encounter (1 Timothy 1:18). The good news is that the prophecy is powerful enough to handle the devil if only you know how to work it.

God does not bless His people by blessing them; God blesses His people by placing demands on them (1 Kings 17:7-16). You can tell your financial future by your response to divine demands coming your way today. God is looking for channels of His blessings, not destinations of His blessings. If God cannot pass it through you, He cannot pass it to you. God is not looking to bless you, He wants to make you a blessing (Genesis 12:2).

Money is a tool for kingdom advancement (1 Timothy 6:17-19). The devil prefers to have you healthy than wealthy because money in the hands of a well taught believer will do serious damage to hell (3 John 1:2). The purpose of comfort is purpose; divine consignment is for divine assignment. The more God elevates you, the more He wants His Kingdom to advance through it (Psalms 75:6).
