A truth we must remember is that God gives only from His good pleasure. The Lord of the resources does not give out of restraint or obligation or any other exterior motivation but from what gives Him pleasure. Without faith, the scriptures teach, it is impossible to please God. Seeing faith in action obviously gives God abundant pleasure because He always responds in like manner.
Seek, and you shall find. Ask, and it will be answered. Knock and the door will be opened. In God’s economy, resources respond to commitment. The river doesn't part until the big toe gets wet. Manna falls daily from the sky only after entering the resource desolate wilderness. In short, commitment precedes resources. Always.
