You might be wondering, “Why then am I not seeing this supply?”
It is because you are choking the flow.
“What do you mean by 'choking the flow'? How do I choke God’s flow of grace?”
Here is an illustration to help you understand what I am saying:
Imagine that there are many pipes coming down from heaven. These are flexible pipes and they are all ministering God’s manifold grace into every area of your life. There is a pipe for healing, a pipe for provision, a pipe for relationships, a pipe for marriage, and so on.
God’s supply into these pipes is always flowing. However, whenever you worry in a particular area of your life, you grab hold of one of those pipes so tightly that you hinder the flow of God’s grace into that area. Is His grace still being supplied from heaven? Yes, but the pipe is choked by your worries and cares. As a result, you cannot receive His grace for that area.
Conversely, in those areas that you are not worried about, His grace flows freely, abundantly supplying all your needs there.
“But how can I not be worried? I have just lost my job, my bank account is running low and I’m looking at a mountain of bills!”
The way to nip worrying in the bud is to do what our Lord Jesus, the Prince of Peace said, in Philippians 4:6-7:
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Only you can make the choice to not worry. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid (John 14:27). When there is something you are concerned about, bring it to the Lord in prayer. Just tell Him about the problem and cast your cares to Him, knowing that He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). Then, thank Him that He has heard you and is doing something about the problem.
If you do this and cast every care to the Lord whenever you start to worry, “the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus," and you’ll soon find a fresh supply of grace abounding toward you.
Remember, Jesus has accomplished everything you need to enjoy His abundant supply and abiding peace in every area of life, every day!
