In today’s memory verse, Jesus, our Royal Master, revealed one of the meanings of dedication: to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. He then assured that every other good thing will be added to those who do so. The truth is that God-seekers and chasers do not have to seek for good things; good things seek, pursue and overtake them. Dedication offers the privilege of access to divine supplies. Anyone who is dedicated to God will live in the realm of abundance and plenty.
Let us examine some scriptural examples of dedicated people who had access to divine supplies. Their stories will strengthen your faith and spur you to emulate them. First, when God called Abraham, He promised to make him a great nation, bless him, make his name great, make him a blessing, bless those who bless him, curse those who curse him and added that in him shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 24:1 affirms that God fulfilled the seven-fold promises of supernatural supply and blessings that He made to Abraham who was an epitome of dedication: ‘And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.’
In Job 1:1-3, the Bible paints a vivid picture of Job’s spiritual stature and dedication to God: he was perfect and upright, feared God and eschewed evil. The result of this enviable credential of Job was that God blessed him with incomparable supernatural supplies in his time (seven sons and daughters as well as honour, wealth and riches untold).
Our Fire Scripture for today reveals how Solomon demonstrated his life of complete dedication to God by offering a thousand burnt offerings to Him in worship and gratitude. One mark of truly dedicated worshippers is that they give extraordinarily and generously to God. The result was that God paid Solomon a visit that changed his life for good.
God gave him what he asked for (wisdom and knowledge); including what he did not ask for – riches, wealth and honour, such as no king before him had. At this point, Solomon’s life of total commitment to God earned him blessings that money could buy and those that money could not buy. I advise you to borrow a leaf from him.
