Proverbs 10:22, GWT “It is the Lord’s blessing that makes a person rich, and hard work adds nothing to it.”
When God created Adam and Eve, He placed them in the Garden, and assigned a task, to tend and to keep it (Gen.2:17). However He didn’t just leave them without a means of being fed. He gave them the empowerment by the blessing by which they will succeed in their assignment as well as in every area of life. And this includes their welfare and provisions. Notice how God guarantees their provision in Genesis 1:29 “Then God said, “Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food.” It was through the seed!
In the kingdom of God, or the blessing system, the method of provision is through the law of seed time and harvest (Gen.8:22). God gives us resources, but we are not given them to hoard, but to plant them as seed, with the expectation of a harvest. This is a toil free system that makes one truly rich (i.e. in full supply) without being a burden physically and mentally. We have to plant our seed (or resources) in faith, believing that God will honor the blessing system.
Jesus taught on this in Mark 4:26 –29
“26And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; 27And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. 28For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. 29But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.”
You may not know how your resources will be met, but like a farmer plants a seed on good ground and with the proper conditions, a harvest is guaranteed so also is this system a guarantee of your provision.
