Ephesians 1:3,4 - "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. According as he has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love."
Many people who are doing something significant for God in the world are doing it "without their own resources" because God doesn't want us to depend on our own abilities.
Instead, He wants us to be obedient by putting the vision on paper and then looking to Him to generate the funds and other resources that are needed to support His own work.
Your provision, however, is usually hidden until you act on your vision. Whatever you were born to do attracts what you need to do it. Therefore, you first have to establish what you want to do and begin to do it before the need can be met.
Most people work in reverse. They want to see the provisions before they start, but faith doesn't work that way. When we take action, then God manifests the provision.
Genesis 22:13,14 - "Then Abraham looked up and glanced around, and behold, behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering and an ascending sacrifice instead of his son! So Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Will Provide."
God already prepared everything you would need before He created you so that you could do what you were born to do. He knew what you needed because He chose you for your vision a long time ago. God tells us we don't have to worry about our provision because He has already blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.
I KNOW THAT GOD WILL NEVER GIVE ME A VISION WITHOUT PROVISION.
I REALIZE THAT MY PROVISION IS USUALLY HIDDEN UNTIL I ACT ON MY VISION.
Those who wait on Him and remain faithful to obey Him will soar. They will accomplish more NOW than ever before. Now is the time for the mature believers to prevail -- the tenacious ones who don't give up, who persist -- the faithful ones who set their face toward the goal and do not relent till it comes to pass.
This is the hour for the warrior spirit to arise, the sons of the Lion of Judah! This is the time to excel and ascend. Cultivate that spirit of excellence.
"Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and innocent children of God -- without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Among whom you will appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life." - Philippians 2:14-16
He will grow your influence and enlarge your territory ( 1 Chronicles 4:10). Abide in Him, let Him abide in you. Only with His presence will you produce fruit that lasts.
