GOD? OR MONEY?
Text : John 6:5-7
“Jesus looked around and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, so he asked Philip, “Where can we buy enough food to feed all these people?”…Philip answered, “For everyone to have even a little, it would take more than two hundred silver coins to buy enough bread.” GNT
You see…What your money can buy, is only “a little” compared to what God can give you!
What men can give you is only “a little” compared to what God can give you!
Please, never think money…Think God…When a need is staring you in the face like this… to embarrass you!
When you’re face to face with an embarrassing need or situation…Don’t think man…think God!
That is, think the Word…think God’s ways…think God’s principles…Yes!
Those who think God first in the face of any need or tough situation, will always have a miracle! I tell you!
While Philip was busy thinking money to feed the 5,000 men in a desert place, Jesus was busy thinking a miracle…And he knew exactly what to do to make it happen…He did it, and it happened!
Whenever you go to God in time of need…God gets involved, and a miracle settles the issue!
So, when you know that it will take a miracle to settle that embarrassing need or situation…then know also that it will take God…The Same God who said in Jeremiah 33:3…
“Call to me, and I will answer you; I will tell you wonderful and marvelous things that you know nothing about.” GNT
That is, “Do something that will get me involved!” Alleluia!
Did you see that? So,instead of worrying, shedding tears, or looking for who to talk to about the need or the issue you’re facing…take advantage of this open cheque God has presented to you!
This should let you know that no matter the need, the problem or issue you’re faced with, you should go to God first…
And if you need to do anything, or go to any man, let him be the one to tell you what to do or who to go to…
And trust me, that will definitely be somebody who will never tell you, “Oh, I’m sorry, I can’t help you!”
Or somebody in whose mouth God has already put the wisdom you need to hear, to know what to do…
Yes…that’s how God works…He’s not a magician…neither does he throw money, or whatever it is you need down from heaven for you…
God does not deal in the world’s currency…or material things…
God is a spirit…and the spiritual currency he deals in is faith…not your tears, complaining, murmuring or despair…See Hebrews 11:6.
May I say this, once again: if it will take a miracle to save you from that need or situation, then, it will take God!
So…what’s your choice?
Money or God?
Man or God?
If God is your choice…you will need to settle down and find out what he would have you do…what he requires of you…or what wisdom he would have you put to work to get him involved in the matter.
Now…Whatever is that need or situation that wants to mock you and your faith in God…I decree a divine intervention for you, now, in Jesus mighty name!
