Economics - God's Way!

God gives you seed, (money, time, equipment, ability, opportunity)

He expects you to sow that seed, (work hard, take each opportunity, utilize the equipment, use the money wisely, etc), no matter how inefficient, ineffective, insufficient it might seem!  Or just plain crazy (am I right?!)

And HE GIVES THE INCREASE on the seed sown!  Supplies and multiplies!!!!

It is that simple!

It is us who mess the whole system up with our doubts and our fears.  I think it is very profound and telling, that God tells the Israelites to consider all that He has done for them in the past.  David did this too.  He kept repeating all that God had done for their nation before, all He had done for David before.  Its to build your faith up.  Because God is able!  He has shown us this through scripture, through our own experiences, through what we see happening in the lives of others.


Why do we doubt then?  I would say it is human nature (with a little added help from the devil's whispering).  We just don't do well when we don't see the whole picture.  But we have to trust the One who does.  Really, what is the worst thing that could happen?  We lose it all?  We lose man's favour?  We lose face in front of friends and family?  I think we can all attest to the fact that despite all that, we have survived so far!

It is time to take the seed that God has provided you with, you know what it is, you know what is in your hands, and sow it already!  In FAITH!  Yes, its hard!  But God says that He will not leave us nor forsake us, and His word is proven and tested, not only by those in the Bible, but also by ourselves.  We have all experienced God's goodness.  Remind yourself of those times!  It builds your faith!

2 Corinth 9 v 10:  Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness.

It is important too,
  • To always be thankful to the Lord no matter the circumstance, 
  • To always express gratitude to the Lord,
  • And to speak God's word over your life and situation, and remember,
  • The power of death and life is in the tongue, use it wisely!
God bless

My ABIDE scripture this week:  Psalms 40 v 5:  Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done;  And Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order;  If I would declare and speak of them,  they are more than can be numbered.

  1. Oh, Tracy! I NEEDED this! I have had this post open for days, and it seems I can never find time to read it, but I was bound and determined to keep it open on my laptop and read it when I had time to really absorb its content. Now, I know why. God spoke straight to my heart concerning some situations in our lives right now through your words! Thank you for always encouraging me and pointing me back to God's Word. He uses you mightily here in this space, and I am so grateful for you and your obedience to His call upon your life. May He bless you always.
