Receiving the fullness of God’s provision for us depends upon us being in the right place at the right time.
God will provide all that fills us with goodness and wellbeing. However, many if not most people today often fail to receive the full provision of God.
Our provision for all things is exactly where God sends us and when He sends us to be there. It may not be there if we arrive too early or too late. And certainly, if He sent us to one place but we go to another we will miss the provision of God.
This includes our physical geographic location and much more. It includes being in the right place at the right time mentally, spiritually, relationally, educationally, occupationally, and in every aspect of life.
Most people would answer yes, if asked, “Do you want the fullness of God’s provision in your life?”
They may continue to explain that no matter how hard they try this just does not work for them.
“The only thing that works for me is to work hard and figure out how to get that which I need and want in life. I tried to do the God thing of going to church, giving offerings, saying prayers, and even reading the Bible, and I believe that may have helped me some to work harder and plan better to get what I want and need in life. But I sure am not yet where I need to be and sure don’t have the fullness of God’s provision in all areas of my life, but I do the best that I can. How could anyone ever be exactly in the right place at the right time in all these areas of life?
I don’t believe that anyone could ever figure out how to be in exactly the right place at exactly the right time in every area of life?”
That is a great question. So glad you asked!
You are exactly right that no natural human could ever figure out how to be in exactly the right place at the right time in all areas of life to walk in the fullness of God’s provision.
Here is a Big Clue and Key
First the clue:
Part of God’s Provision is perfect Guidance without figuring it out.
And here is the key:
Walk in The Spirit, through the oneness of being in Love with God, hearing and obeying always.
The Mind of Christ
Our natural human minds have been robbed of the created mind of the Sons of God as created in the first Adam and restored in the “last Adam” Christ Jesus.
Neither the greatest AI (artificial intelligence) machines nor the damaged natural human minds at their finest are even a measurable fraction of the unlimited abilities of God and His Son Christ Jesus.
Only the “mind of Christ” has knowledge and wisdom of all things that can cause us to be in the right place at the right time to receive all the fullness of the provision of God.
As fully redeemed mature Sons of God, “We have The Mind of Christ!”
“For ‘who has known the mind of The LORD that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:16
How Does That Work?
Once a long time ago I was explaining some deep spiritual thing to a group of men. One young pastor who was not really agreeing asked very doubtfully, “Now, how does that work?” And I replied, “Real Good!” causing a burst of laughter among the group.
But for real, how is it that we can have the mind of Christ?
The perfect mind of God in Christ Jesus was never damaged by sin and remains the perfect mind of God.
The redemption of the cross removing our sin opens the way for Spirit Christ Jesus to live in us. He returned to earth as Spirit Christ in The Holy Spirit at Pentecost to indwell those who love God. Spirit Jesus abides in us as we receive Him and abide in Him.
Therefore, with Christ in our fully redeemed spirit, we have only to go to and hear from Spirit Christ within our spirit to know all that we need to know from the mind of Christ.
We literally can have the mind of Christ to guide our every thought and movement, if we choose to walk by the Spirit and not by our old damaged minds.
Our minds, over time by the experience of hearing from Spirit Christ within, can become renewed to the mind of Christ. This process is part of the true saving of the soul.
When Spirit Christ moves into our spirits, we are made alive from death. However, each of us must renew our soul (mind, will, and emotions) by falling totally in love with God thereby allowing The Holy Spirit God to fill our spirit first and then our soul and body with Spirit Christ Jesus.
God is Love. Love is of God.
Love only comes to us through Christ Jesus in The Holy Spirit.
Without the fullness of The Holy Spirit in us there is no fullness of the manifestation of the perfect love of God in us.
As baptism in water is being saturated in water, baptism in Spirit is being saturated in Spirit God.
The presence of the pure holy unconditional love in our spirit, soul, and body is the fruit of The Spirit of God in us. The primary and predominant fruit of the Spirit is love and through love flows all the fruit of the Spirit of God.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” Galatians 5:22-25
The guidance of the fruit from the “tree of life” is Spirit God within us filling our spirit, soul, and body with the love and life of God.
God’s Guidance in our spirit is greater, closer, and faster than our human mind.
We can now “walk in The Spirit” through the oneness of being in love with God and simply hearing and obeying.
The Two Trees
Genesis presents the difference between partaking of guidance from the tree of knowledge that leads to death, and partaking of guidance from the tree of life, The Spirit God.
The call of God today is to turn away from partaking of the fruit of “the tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
Or said another way, the tree of figuring out how to do life from our fallen human knowledge without Spirit God, and to turn to the “tree of life” and start partaking of the fruit of hearing Spirit God and walking in the Spirit of God.
Walking in the garden of the fullness of God’s Love and Provision is the manifestation of The Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
It is The Kingdom of God within us, flowing out into the world around us, and joining with God’s manifest presence among us.
Peace on earth and goodwill toward man is the love and mission of God in Christ Jesus by The Holy Spirit filling this world with His Life — now and forever.
Thank You Jesus, Father, and Holy Spirit! Amen!
Be made whole in His love,
