The number 10 is the spiritual number for divine sufficiency , accomplishment and prosperity , it is in the light of this truth that this month holds a lot for those who believe and has been prophetically declared as the month of testimonies confirming increase in your finances .
Dear Friend,the supply of our need as promised by the lord is guaranteed however it is POSITIONAL . The scriptures in 1Kings 17. Shows us how God does this through the experiece of Elijah the prophet.1 Kings 17:2-4:And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, [3] Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. [4] And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.Elijah's provision wasn't where he was; it was where God told him to go! This is profound!Some of us have an impression from God to do something. Maybe to start a new business, make a job change, move to another town, go to Bible college, speak to a person, etc. We are persuaded to do it, but we keep holding back because the provision isn't there yet. You're saying, "God, I can't do what You're asking without first seeing the provision. How do I know all these things are going work out?" This principle in 1 Kings applies directly to your situation. God is sending the provision for your needs not to where you are but to where He told you to go! The question is, "Are you positioned to recieve it" Some of us aren't experiencing supernatural provision because we aren't positioned . There is a position  for you.In verse 4,  we see the ravens on their way to where Elijah was supposed to go.First Kings 17:5 says,So [Elijah] went and did according unto the word of the Lord: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.Elijah wouldn't have seen God's provision if he hadn't gone where God instructed.One of the reasons we aren't seeing a greater provision from God financially, emotionally or in our circumstances is because we aren't doing what God told us to do. We've got a word from God that we haven't acted on. We're somewhere other than where He told us to be.Now, by the doctrine of  God's grace He provides things for us and that it's not based on our obedience or holiness. God loves us independent of our performance-that's absolutely true! But does this mean obeying Him is unimportant? Just the opposite.God has a plan for your life and He chose you from your mother's womb and ordained you to be a servant of God and He has great things planned for you, things earmarked for you that has your name on them. But if we don't obey, step out, and do what He tells us to do, God still would provide, but we would miss out on it. We have to be positioned .God just needs our cooperation to bring things to pass .This isn't intended to hurt or condemn anyone, because I know you doing your utmost best and now thinking, Maybe that's why things aren't working in my life-I haven't been obedient to what God told me to do! Well... that's absolutely correct! It's not that God won't bless you because you haven't obeyed Him; it's that His blessing is positional ! It's like receiving a mobile phone as a gift, you would need to go to where there is sufficient network to use it.  If the reason you won't step out is because you've got some form of "security" but you're miserable and things are just going wrong, I encourage you to do what God told you to do.God is meeting all of your needs-He's sending His supply to where He told you to be. This is one of the great lessons from the life of Elijah.Let's look at 1 Kings 17:6:And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.As I mentioned before, I believe that since God had already commanded the ravens, if Elijah hadn't obeyed, God would still have been faithful to send the provision where He told him to go. I believe that these ravens would have brought bread and meat every morning and evening but that it all would have piled up beside the brook and gone to waste. Elijah could have starved to death even though God had been faithful to provide for his needs.Here's something else to consider: How did Elijah know which spot along the brook Cherith to go? If the brook was ten miles long, he could have been five or ten miles away from where the ravens were bringing him food. The ravens could fly faster than Elijah could walk or run. I'm convinced that one of the ways he knew he was at the right spot was because the ravens were already "positioned" with the bread and meat. When Elijah saw the provision God had promised, that was one of the signs that he was in the right place.The same will be true of you when you step out. You have to take a step of faith with no guarantees that things are going to work. And then you will start seeing the provision of the Lord. It'll be confirmation that you're going in the right direction and doing what He told you to do. You'll be able to say, "It was God who told me to do this."This is how it's worked in my life. God's provision isnt given accidentally but positionally . I'm a product of  1 Kings 17 taking  steps of faith got me where I am. And I'm going to keep taking steps of faith. All you have to do to get started is take a step of faith this could radically change your life if you would act on it and may the God of Elijah prove himself strong on your behalf in Jesus name.
