SCRIPTURE: Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Something must be a point of contact for something greater to be gotten.
The Scripture makes it clear that God wants all His children to be in good health and abound in prosperity. (3 John 1:2).
However, many of God’s children are still poor, either because:
a. They have not learnt God’s wisdom for supernatural abundance.
b. They have refused to obey or walk in God’s wisdom for supernatural abundance.
Now, what is God’s Wisdom for supernatural supply?
It is releasing both your life and resources to God.
You must understand that in Genesis Chapter Two, God did not take the rib from Adam because he wanted to eat bones. Rather, He took the rib from Adam because he (Adam) needed an Eve. God took one rib and multiplied it into 204 bones, and then added muscles, tendons arteries, veins, capillaries, joints, ligaments, etc. and returned a woman from whom He took the rib.
You see, the miracle of supply never happens without a release. There are people who release occasionally, so they also receive occasionally. There are those who release habitually and they live in the realm of perpetual harvest.
Even when the axe head fell into the water, the prophet demanded that a stick should be cut (2 Kings 6:1-6).
Something must be a point of contact for something greater to be gotten. When the prophet put the stick where the axe head fell, the axe came out swimming on the water.
Beloved, if the stick is too important to you, you can forfeit the axe head. Those who are sentimentally attached to the stick can never have the axe head. This principle is consistent throughout Scriptures.
Sometime ago, I emptied everything in my two mega bank accounts for a major aspect of the construction of the Glory Dome. I have been a giver at that realm before that time because nothing is too much for me to give to God.
When people struggle to pay tithe, they have not yet started because tithe is a kindergarten giving level. The lifestyle of giving is not restricted to the paying of tithes. There are other forms of giving like free will offering, giving to the poor, the priest, your parents or project giving, etc. It is living in the realm of sacrifices, and not only when the church calls for a sacrifice.
REMEMBER THIS: Something must be a point of contact for something greater to be gotten.
- Refuse to be stingy towards God, His Kingdom and .His people.
- Release what is in your hands as prompted by God so you can receive what is in His Hands.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I ask for the grace to release what You have given me so I can access greater things in Your Hands for me, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Those who focus on what to give or multiply gain it all. Find out from the widow of Zarephath. Find out from the prophet’s widow. These were people who were focused on what to release for multiplication. Culled from the book, “21 UNCOMMON KEYS TO FINANCIAL OVERFLOW” by Dr Paul Enenche.
