God had promised him provisions for his overseas studies. But how would the money come? He works as a legal practitioner. Someone called him to help prepare a legal document; he should normally charge around 50 thousand, but he charged 200 thousand. He was credited with two million. When he called to confirm, the client responded; “I just want to bless you”. This young man has unlocked divine provision.

Friend, divine provision is real. You need to believe it in order to experience and enjoy it. My emphasis today is on channels of provisions. This is where I believe a lot of people miss it. You need to understand that God has blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:3). But you need to learn how to unlock these blessings.

If you are a child of God, you are not trying to be blessed; you are already blessed (2 Peter 1:3). We are all blessed equally in Christ, but we are not all going to manifest the blessings equally. There are factors that determine how much of the spiritual blessings that would manifest practically. The better you can work on these practical sides, the more you would enjoy the spiritual blessings. This is what it means to unlock divine provisions.

God uses the channels of what you have in your heart, your hands and in your house to bless you. Your eyes need to be opened to these things if you would unlock divine provisions (2 Kings 4:2). “What do you have in your house”? was the question the prophet asked that widow in 2 Kings 4. There is always something you have in your house that God can bless you with; to live in denial or neglect of this is to not be ready for divine provisions.

God is not a magician, He is a miracle worker. Miracles are products of divinity and humanity. When you are believing God for provisions, pay attention to what you can do to unlock what God has done. That young man in our opening story had something in his hands; he’s a skillful lawyer. Moses had a rod (Exodus 4:2). The miracle at the canal of Galilee was done with what they had in their house; six water pots (John 2:5-10).

God will not ask you to bring what you don’t have; what you have is enough for God if only you can corporate with Him (John 6:8-12). What do you have in your heart? What is that idea that you have been putting away for sometime now? For the four lepers in 2 Kings 7, an idea occurred to them to go into the camp of the Syrians. They dared to act on it, and they unlocked divine provisions fulfilling the prophecy of the man of God (2 Kings 7:1-20).
