Scriptural Reading: Psalms 37; 19
Scarcity is of the earth, abundance is divine. Our scriptural reading says, “In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty. As Bible believing Christians, we’re not looking at life from a purely physical realm. Gisle Sorli said, “Our definition and understanding of whatever “scarcity” and “abundance ” means is shaped by remembering who God is, what God cares about, and how God does things. Child of God, God graciously provides exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that we ask or think. God provides in ways we would never expect. Dehumanizing poverty is not the plan or will of God for you. (3 Jn.1 :2)
For you to enjoy this abundance in scarcity, you must possess uncommon falth. A faith that says yes to whatever God’s word says, irrespective of how impossible it seems. Beloved, irrespective of the scarcity around you, the word of God says you can enjoy abundance. In the days of Elijah when there was eat scarcity, 1 Kings 17:6 says, “the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening and he drank from the brook.” Job 5:20 says “In famine He will redeem you from death, and in war from the power of the sword.” Judges 15:18 “Then he became very thirsty , and he called to the Lord and said, “You have given this great deliverance by the hand of Your servant, and now shall I die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?” But God split the hollow place that is in Lehi so that water came out of it. When he drank, his strength returned and he was revived.”
Proverbs 10:3 says, “The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry, but He thwarts the craving of the wicked.” Psalms 34:10 says, “The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; but they who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing”
Jesus himself demonstrated this in Matthew 14:13-21. In the story of the feeding of the five thousand by Jesus, the disciples viewed life through the lens of scarcity, purely from the physical realm: “We only have five loaves and two fish”, we have limited resources, and there is scarcity of resources (emphasis added . Jesus says: “Put the resources in my hand and see what I can do with it”
When Jesus is involved, scarcity turns to abundance. A similar story is told in I Kings 17:7-16 were Elijah encounters the widow of Zarephath. She was about to run out of food, but because she submitted to Elijah’s request to feed him, her small amount of flour and olive oil never ran out. We are serving a King who has abundance at His disposal. You cannot enjoy this abundance in scarcity without being generous, you cannot be generous when you have very limited resources without having uncommon faith. The kind of generosity needed for one to experience this miraculous supernatural supply is a sacrificial generosity; like Abraham who could still sacrify his only son. In the spirit of Prophet Elijah of old I make a prophetic demand of you today, there is a family, there is a person around you that needs your help to survive, grant a very generous assistance to that family or person, and Jesus Christ will multily that generosity, “pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. for with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. May the Holy Spirit enlighten you more and direct your thoughts, may He grant -you the uncommon faith for this uncommon miracle of many supply in the name of Jesus.
1. Take this chorus: “Yahweh, Your name is Yahweh, You’re the miracle-working, God, Your name is Yahweh ”.
2. ‘ Confess your sins to God.
3. Father, bless me and expand my territory in the name of Jesus.
4. Grace and favor shall speak on my behalf wherever I go in the name of Jesus.
5.‘ God I am tired of managing, give me the Resources that will cancel every insult-in the name of Jesus.
6, Every good thing my enemies have buried far from my reach, locate me now, in the name of Jesus.
7, I declare by faith that Jesus will supply all my needs. spiritually, financially, physically and emotionally throughout this year in the name of Jesus.
8, I declare that God will shower me with such abundance of His favour that even the enemy will have to acknowledge it in the name of Jesus.
9. I declare that I shall be blessed with supernatural abundance that will bless generations to come in the name of Jesus.
