Today’s message from God Calling – A.J. Russell, reminds us that, first, all supply is fashioned from love. Secondly, Spirit must be supplied first. Third John 1:2 -“Our beloved, I pray for you that you will prosper in all things and be well, just as your soul prospers.” (Aramaic bible in plain English) See why I love biblehub.com?
The message outlines the “supply chain” and the domino effect of it briefly. We are promised a constant supply, but “only if the need is a spiritual one.” -quoting directly from the message. If we prosper as our souls prosper, this makes absolute perfect sense, doesn’t it? So, for a child of God, because we are spirit in physical bodies, it is our spirit that receives.
Proverbs 4:23 tells us , “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” What you feed your body depends on what your heart is set on, doesn’t it? Am I desiring health and well being? Then I will avoid harmful foods, drink, activities, etc. I will, instead, choose food and drink that is good for me, cultivate and maintain self-control and will power, and indulge in activities that are healthful for me-body, mind, and soul.
When I learned this lesson, I began to appreciate the peace, power, and joy that these things brought to my mind, heart, and soul. The more peace, power, and joy I discovered in them, the more I sought them in every day living. The more ways I sought them in every day living. You would be amazed how peaceful and joyful fresh linen on the bed can make you feel. This is a good reason and motivation to cultivate the discipline of changing linen often, and a joyful “treasure” of housekeeping. Can you see what I mean? When we seek to supply Spirit first, we not only are promised a constant supply; we can constantly find sources of supply as well. And, yes, that supply is fashioned from love. Love the LORD, your God with all your might, and love your neighbor as you love yourself. Be good to yourself until that goodness and joy flows over and makes you want to be good to everyone else. I promise, you will find ways to bless others.
