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

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
As Nehemiah’s wall was built, so will we see a reconstruction in all that may appear in distress and in waste. Nehemiah trusted and feared God, putting his faith in the Almighty whose strength is limitless to exceed all our expectations. Look out daily for Nehemiah’s Wall in 2015 and do invite friends to subscribe to the free email or social media posts.
I am praying someone with a burden to be used by God in building will receive a fresh vision and get the job done.
