///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 145| 25 MAY 2021 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.
To abound in blessings (spiritual, financial and or health blessings) the child of God must know one truth with certainty, ‘God is the source!’ One thing the Christian must know absolutely is God as his/her source. Without understanding and walking in this truth, life will be full of ups, downs, breakthroughs and disappointments (very unpredictable). Remember that there’s no blessing you can receive in this life unless God approves it for you (that's what our opening verse said).
When you come to know God as your source, you see men and your efforts as instruments and channels by which God blesses you but not the source of your blessing. You no longer cast you hopes and expectations on how diligent you could be or the connections you have. (Num 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?) If God were a man, it would have been possible for him to lie but God is not a man so His words can never fail. Meaning if we trust in man or even in ourselves, there will be a possibility of not getting what we want although we or they may promise with good intentions.
Another thing our opening verse makes clear is this; unless God grants you a thing no man can get it to you although you may struggle or fight for it with all you have all your life time. Everyone may say you deserve it but without God's approval, you are not receiving anything! This is the more reason you need to set your eyes on God and his Word. Your spouse, children, parents, church, friends, job and personal abilities are not your source; God is! They are only channels through which God releases his goodness. God is your source!
Depending on men and things instead of God will make life somehow unpredictable, unstable and devoid of miracles and very deptessing. But making God your source opens your life up for the supernatural and the unprecedented life. It puts you in the midst of God’s unlimited supplies, and an unending stream of the miraculous!
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
I take my eyes away from men as my source. God is my source! I depend on him for everything. The men and opportunities around me are but channels through which God gets to me and without them God can still reach me!
