|What is Mystery? Mystery is something that is not common, unbelievable and is hidden. In Christian doctrine, mystery is regarded as a belief or truththat is considered to be beyond human understanding and can be made known only by divine revelation.The book of Philippians 4:19 reads thus: my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.For God to supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus you need to be alert, vigilant studious, and obedient to Gods words and instructions.You must read Gods word (The Holy Bible) every day and put it into practice.This is supported by Philippians 3:10.( That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death)
Keys that unlock the mystery of Divine Provision:
For anyone that wants to experience the Mystery of divine provision, he or she must put into practice these keys and make them part and parcel of his or her every day living habit.
(1) Stop relying on your strength:
The holy bible makes us to understand that by strength shall no man prevail (1Samuel 2:9), while proverbs 10:22 makes us to understand that the blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. Also in Zechariah 4:6 the Lord makes us to understand, that it is not by might, nor by power, but by His spirit. Therefore every born-again child of God must learn to let go completely for God. This however, is not a license for laziness. You must work hard, but when you have done your bit, hand over the rest unto the Almighty God, who knows the end from the beginning.
(2) You must learn to obey God completely:
Implicit obedience to Gods injunction is necessary if you must enjoy Divine Provision. In the book of Isaiah 1:19 God says if you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land.
(3) Develop your spiritual ears to hear Him when He speaks to you
It is important to always have a quiet time with God. This should not be mixed with the family alter, but should be a time set aside for you alone to read the word, pray and wait for an answer quietly.
(4) You must learn to fear God:
This kind of fear is not morbid fear but the kind of fear that shows the awesomeness of the Almighty God. It is the fear of His greatness. He can kill and he can make alive. Our fear should be a form of reverence of Him. The book of proverbs 15:33 says: The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom. We need Divine Wisdom to access Divine Provisions. In fearing the Almighty God, we must avoid sin in all its ramification. The word of God says that righteousness exults a nation but sin is a reproach, unto a people.
(5) You must be willing to Sacrifice:
You must learn to give (sacrifice) at all times; when it is convenient and when it is not convenient. It is not only money that you can sacrifice; you can sacrifice your time, your belongings and so many other things to serve the Almighty God. King Solomon sacrificed one thousand burnt offerings and he had a Divine visitation. Thus he became one of the greatest Kings that ever ruled on earth.
(6) Learn to Praise God Always:
Praising God always brings His glory down and when this happens to an individual that person’s situation must change for the better. The bible tells us that God inhabits the praises of His people.(psalm 22:3)
(7) You need to be Tutored by someone higher than you:
This is so in spiritual things as well as in physical and material things. It is a universal law.
