7 Keys To Purpose I Week 4: Provision
Updated: Jun 17, 2021
Welcome to the 7 Keys to Purpose blog series. This post will cover week 4 out of a 6-week series. In case you missed it, last week we dived into how to use perception to unlock purpose. Below you will find the 7 Keys and a summary of each week's topic. Week 4 is all about provision, so let's get started with this God-given key.
Key 4: Provision
You activate a supernatural provision that can only come from walking in purpose.
If God tells you to do it, trust he will provide. Many times in the Bible you see examples of disciples of Jesus being instructed to go somewhere with nothing, yet God provided them shelter, food, and safety for the journey. God will provide the provision you need. Yes God also wants to give you your heart's desires Psalm 37:4 "Delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." However let's be clear, the provision for your purpose is God providing for your needs and not necessarily your wants. You may want a brand new car, whatever your dream car is, let's say for fun it may start at a cost of $50,000. God knows you only need a reliable good car that can get you to where you need to go, and will bless you with a $10,000 dollars car. Would you take it? God has a way of surprising you.
Provision from God can be supernatural. These are my favorite. This is the type of provision when a person or the world says no but God finds a way to come through anyways.
1. Maybe you were denied the loan but then the money appears.
2. You don't have the credit but supernaturally they give you the apartment.
3. You were denied by man but not by God.
You see when God's hand is on it he will cause men to give unto you. This can be people you know, family and friends, or even strangers. God can and will use anyone to bless you so stay open.
I remember supernatural provisions started showing up in my life during the pandemic. I was like many parents forced to become a home-schooling mom to kids who did not understand the sudden change of school closures. These closures affected my ability to work outside the home. However, God provided supernaturally, I'm talking going from $700 dollars in my bank account and suddenly having $7,000 in my account (this was not money I was expecting). Also thanks to Amazon I started receiving bigger royalty checks deposited into my business bank account from books I had published back in 2019. Mind you, I was not doing any active promotion, however, people were finding my books by searching and having more time at home to read. When I tell you the way God showed out in my life during one of the hardest times globally, I will never doubt what he can do.
No matter what it looks like, no matter what may be going on in the world, God will provide. He is a good father, you can hold him to his word. His character, the word of God, is unfailing. Here are seven scriptures to hold onto about provision.
Genesis 9:3 Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.
Hebrews 13:5 ... Never will I leave you never will I forsake you.
Jeremiah 29:11- 13 For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
