Divine Provisions

Nehemiah 11:23 For it was the king’s commandment concerning them, that a certain portion should be for the singers, due for every day.

When God issues a command it must be so. Does it not surprise us that ravens brought bread to Elijah by the brook during the drought or that a widow could be raised to feed him. God does not abandon His officers to suffer hunger. Be assured that He will take care of you – even in the lion’s den of politics and corporate intrigues. He will provide not just sustenance but divine wisdom, divine preservation, divine health and divine strength. His provisions are daily and inexhaustible. Fearful man, why do you worry that yesterday’s provisions appear diminished and insufficient – when we have an all-sufficent God who daily loads us with all manner of benefits.

God has commanded that you should be specially taken care of. That is your portion as God’s officer in the market place. It does not matter the economic season … He is a great provider and when He commands provisions, the windows of heaven open and ministering angels do His bidding.

Note in the scripture, that there is a special reservation to be made daily for God’s man or woman. Therefore expect daily miracles of provision as you go about leading God’s business – doing His work of building and restoration. Remember that the enemy has his own daily provisions too. Be like Daniel. Reject what the devil offers.


Dan 1:5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.
Dan 1:6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
Dan 1:7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.
Dan 1:8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Verses for further meditation
1 Timothy 5:8 ; Matthew 45: 21-25

Thoughts for Business and the work place
A good leader makes adequate provisions for those who serve him. Evil leadership cannot provide for their own household and less so for others who work for them.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, thank you for your daily provisions. Keep me faithful in your service. Amen

Very Great Gladness

Nehemiah 8:17 And all the congregation of them that were come again out of the captivity made booths, and sat under the booths: for since the days of Jeshua the son of Nun unto that day had not the children of Israel done so. And there was very great gladness.

There was very great gladness amongst the children of Israel, as they restored divine directives that had been ignored for many years, almost completely forgotten. Recollections and narrations of the great deliverances in the times of Moses and Joshua gave them new hope, knowing God is able to do even more for them. Somehow I suspect they paid less attention to the fact that their disobedience and rebellion against God had always been their undoing … but God is the God of many chances …it was enough that His grace had selected this generation for an awesome revival.

While it is good that we rejoice and are filled with gladness when revival is in the air, this needs to be matched with watchfulness, because the enemy has not gone asleep …and we need to know how he strikes and how to defend the walls that have be rebuilt and the families who now live within.

They were glad because their deliverance from captivity was sealed with the word and celebration of the feast of booths suggesting to them that the God of Abraham was mighty and pleased to bring them safely back. They could now be a unique people again, consecrated to their God, free to practice their faith.

There is every reason to be glad in the knowledge that God is with us and for us. There is every reason to be glad to know that what He has done before He can do again. There is every reason to be glad that we belong to Him totally and completely and He watches over us like the “apple of His eye” … like cherished treasure. Why don’t you sing songs of rejoicing, make new melodies in your heart …and dance to praise and honor Him? But be also watchful.

Note “great gladness” is usually associated with the crowning of admired Kings, special feasts worshipping Jehovah and times of spiritual and political revival. May these times come again.

Verses for further meditation
Psalm 122:1 ; 1 Chron 29:22

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Where the leadership is good, the people are glad. That gladness can be a great gladness.
