You always have something
You always have something, you are never without.
Eph 1:3 The correct interpretation of this scripture specifically talks about the blessing on the body of Christ much more than on an individual. God has blessed “US” with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places. Us here is the Church. Where 2 or 3 are gathered together in His name, it means we are together as 1 as the body of Christ.
Every blessing is for the body of Christ; with this understanding, you become liberated from envy/jealousy. Therefore, when someone around you is blessed with what you desire, know that the blessing is also available within your reach.
When God wants to do something with a people, He starts by investing it in the life of a person because the Kingdom of God always starts as a seed. What you somethings think you are envious of; is actually the seed of your breakthrough.
For example, when God was going to deliver the Children of Israel from famine, He invested the seed in the life of Joseph. His brothers misinterpreted the seed and wanted to kill the seed of their preservation. If they had killed the seed in Joseph, they would have died in the famine.
You must pay attention to who God has made you and to your uniqueness; therefore do not allow another person put you down.
You must rejoice and celebrate others because the “body” is blessed. The manifestation of the spirit is given to each one for the profit of ALL. There is no competition in the Kingdom of God. You need to change your attitude towards others especially when you perceive they are excelling.
When you appreciate your neighbour, such that their abundance will supply your lack that their maybe equality in the body. You must discern this wisdom in the body. When God blesses people in the body, He makes them custodians of His blessings and they dispense it. The key to accessing the blessing is humility, honesty, openness, and vulnerability to those who God places around us who are the custodians to God’s blessings.
The widow was honest, vulnerable, open, and humble towards the Prophet Elisha. However, her husband, although a close associate to the Prophet, did not discern the Lord’s body (the grace in Elisha). You must pray for the spirit of discernment to know when God is speaking to you through someone around you. The oil that turned things around in the family of the widow was always there (even in the lifetime of the Prophet prior to his death), but they never saw it as a resource which is why they went to the creditor.
The world has been programmed to think from what you don’t have, Any conversation that points you to your deficit is not the voice of God. The voice of God always starts with what you have and leads you to where you need to be. You must not think from lack (deficit).
Life is warfare, everything you desire is a counsel away. As a child of God, you must be open to counsel, but the important thing to be aware of is that you must know the SOURCE of the counsel. Anything that the counsel of the world gives will eventually depreciate however the counsel from the word is of superior quality because though it may start as a seed, it will eventually appreciate.
In the multitude of counsellors there is safety; accountability is a safe place.
The creditor signifies the help of man; the prophet signifies the help of God. Nothing a man gives you is free. When you go to man to receive a solution, he will never let you forget that he helped you.
A true prophetic voice always sees value in what you have. Your value is tied to the quality of your gift and how you have horned it. Jesus saw value in the boy’s lunch and the value in it fed the multitude.
The oil speaks of your ability, potential, grace.
The well speaks of inheritance/skill/grace within a family. The inheritance is tried and tested and fit for the next generation. Anytime you thirst (a form of lack in your life), it is an opportunity for the Holy Spirit to replenish strength within you.
No matter how much you have, you would always come into a time/challenge that triggers a thirst within. When you get to a point that you lack something, then you qualify for the supply of the spirit of God. God brings us to a point of crisis so that you can acknowledge that you need His spirit for renewal/refill/restoration/rebuild.
The starts with the anointing of the Holy Spirit then potential. The oil is a seed that you count less than zero. It is a seed that you do not pay attention to. It takes another eye to make you see value in what you are despising.
How do you deploy your oil?
- By borrowing vessels, do not borrow a few.
- Begin to pour into the vessels. By serving people with what you have.
The vessels are always empty, they require work. For God to take you high, He would first break you down.
You already have something, look inwards, and see the value within. Sometimes frustration makes you look inwards, which makes you pay attention to what you have. What is most important is who points to you what is there. Make sure you receive counsel from the Spirit of God.
