We were preparing to shop for our first baby. Honestly, we were trusting God for more. Some weeks to delivery, while trusting for financial blessings, God sent us gifts of new cloths. Her wardrobe was almost filled up.

While preparing to shop for our second baby, God sent us a box load of baby cloths. The person was even telling us it was small. God still meet needs and answers prayers.

First, do not be afraid of obeying God because of the fear of needs and survival. One of the most prominent questions you will have no answer to is “How will you survive?” Or “How will you take care of your family”

God does not encourage laziness but He equally discourages worrying.

“This is why I tell you to never be worried about your life, for all that you need will be provided, such as food, water, clothing—everything your body needs. Isn’t there more to your life than a meal? Isn’t your body more than clothing?” Matthew 6:25 TPT

Worrying changes nothing. You must have plans but you must not be soaked in by the concerns so much that it takes over the driver seat of your life.

Second, God still answers prayers. When you have a need, the first place is to look at is not your pocket but God’s budget. In His budget, the needs are already included.

“For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”
Matthew 6:32 NKJV

Finally, do not be so driven by your need that you begin to walk in disobedience to divine will such as giving lovingly and sacrificially. God still wants you to bless lives with what you have.

If you live only for your needs, you are living a pretty small life. There is someone somewhere that you can bless while you wait. Seek out opportunities to be a blessing in small doses while you wait for the big deal.

Do not let your need take over the driver’s seat of your destiny. It will shut out divine favour.

There is love in sharing
