“Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbours’ jewels of silver and jewels of gold.” Exodus 11:2
In every provision of God for our lives, we should remember that the Lord’s portion is in it. When we refuse to release His portion, then there is trouble for us. We see this happen in Judah in the book of Haggai 1:6. For every God given assignment, He has already provided every resource needed to accomplish the task. The Bible told us about God telling His people via prophet Moses to bring an offering for the tabernacle. Where were they supposed to get silver and gold as they just came out of slavery? We should remember that just before they left Egypt, God told them to borrow jewels of gold and silver from the Egyptians. Ex. 11:2-3. This they did. However, God did not tell them the purpose for doing it. First reason is to compensate them for their labour in Egypt. Secondly, for the works of
the tabernacle. Here is the lesson, we should note that every increase we get as man is from the Lord. He allowed it to happen, for the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Also, for every assignment of God, there is a divine provision in place. We should not make mistake of claiming that we get it by our own power. Some will even give and still claim that the money is theirs. It is lack of understanding that will make you believe it is your money. The moment the money is sanctified, it ceases to be your own.
Lord, I trust that You shall supply my needs according to Your riches in Jesus name. Amen.
