Today I am reading day 217 of Joseph Prince’s Devotional:
God Is Easy To Take From
Exodus 3:8 8So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land…
When the children of Israel provided for themselves in Egypt, they ate cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions and garlic. (Numbers 11:5) These were types of food which required them to bend down close to the ground and pull out to eat — a backbreaking work.
But when God provided for them in Canaan, a land flowing with milk and honey (Numbers 13:27), He gave them grapes, pomegranates and figs. (Numbers 13:23) These fruits were not found on the ground and the Israelites only had to pluck them to eat them.
God wants you to know that when He provides for you, you will see a flow of provisions coming your way, and all you need to do is to just stretch forth your hand and take from Him!
So if you are planning to get married, don’t say to yourself, “Well, if I work harder and start saving now, I will have… oh my goodness, not much! The cost of the wedding banquet will wipe out everything! How can I get married?”
As a child of God, know that your Daddy God is excited about your upcom- ing wedding, and He is very rich! I have not seen couples in our church lacking on their wedding day. What I have seen is money coming in on the wedding day itself. And by the time the celebration is over, everything is paid up. So instead of trusting your efforts to have enough for your big day, God wants you to fix your wedding date and put your trust in Him to provide for you abundantly.
Are you faced with a financial debt? How much do you think you can save by working overtime and taking on a second job? Some of our church members will testify that God simply turned their financial situations around. In fact, Pastor Mark, our Hokkien and Mandarin services pastor, had a sizeable debt before he became a Christian. After he got saved, he handed his debt problem over to God. Within two years, his debt was supernaturally cleared and he even had a surplus!
My friend, faith is the hand that takes from God. And He is easy to take from!
Thought For The Day
Faith is the hand that takes from God who provides for you abundantly.
