Look Up For Your Supply

“…The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my Savior…”

2 Samuel 22:2–3, NIV

When the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, they relied on the River Nile, a natural resource, for their supply of water. They depended on their own hands to carry the water from the Nile and did not have to look to God for His supply. This is a picture of human self-effort.

On the other hand, in the promised land of Canaan that God had prepared for His beloved people, there was no River Nile to depend on. So they had to look up and depend solely on the Lord for the blessing of rain to fall upon their land.

Beloved, even as you labor diligently in your career today, what is your trust in? Is it in your self-efforts to provide for yourself, or is your dependence on the Lord to bless, increase and promote you? It’s time to look up, especially in times of economic turmoil when the “Niles” of the world are drying up. Look up to Jesus for your supply!

  • I really love this. My Abba Father is continuing to show me examples of self righteousness as He has opened my ears and eyes to see His GRACE through Pastor Joseph Princes messages. My Abba Father is growing my heart by leaps and bounds just like the roe on the mountain top in the bible. I love sharing what my Abba Father freely gives to me with whosoever He wills. At those times He allows me to share His heart by speaking to others, I don’t feel any pain or even any tiredness, even though just moments before I start sharing His GRACE , this body is greatly tired and strongly experiencing those lying of chronic nerve pain. Now, how amazing is that? Experiencing exuberant energy and NO pain causes me to crave these times of sharing GRACE everyday all day long. But even at this my Abba Father God sees me and knows I need refueling in His Word everyday as well. He loves me so much, He furiously protects me. I am The LORDS beloved daughter in whom He is well pleased, The righteousness of God in Christ JESUS.
