The Secret to All Supply

“Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “And not a God afar off? Can anyone hide himself in secret places, So I shall not see him?” says the Lord; “Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord. Jeremiah 23:23, 24 NKJV

There was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year; and David inquired of the Lord, and the Lord answered (2 Sam. 21:1). Like David discovered, the presence of the Lord is the answer to every situation. It is not an answer; it is the answer; it is the master key. In the face of famine, David didn’t seek rain or aid from another nation, David sought the presence of the Lord. God is always near at hand; you or your situation can never hide from God because His presence fills heaven and earth (text).

Christians read the Bible, and say that they believe its words, but often failed to understand that the God of the Bible is always present. The Bible begins with the answer—not the problem. In the beginning God—not problems, not need; not acute shortages of any good, lack or depravation. God created Paradise with Adam & Eve in mind (Gen. 1:1, 31). He never had in mind for them or us: pain, struggle, tears, toil, and unhappiness. So why is it, when things go awry, we often find ourselves not seeking the presence of God, but the thing that we think is the solution?

Let us not forget three powerful facts about God: God is Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent, i.e., all powerful, all knowing, and all present (Ps. 139:7-8; Prov. 15:3; Isa. 66:1).     God is present everywhere and absent nowhere. God is       everywhere, or God is not God anywhere. For example,    when sickness becomes health, God is just as much present during sickness as He is during health. So, what does it mean, “David inquired or sought the presence of God?

For sure, it doesn’t mean that God wasn’t present, or David somehow escaped the presence of God. What David sought was the consciousness of the presence of God. Instead of being acutely aware of the problem, he became acutely aware of the answer (2 Sam. 21:1). David discovered the secret to overcoming famine; which is, to stop practicing the absence of God by dwelling on the problem, analyzing it, thinking about it, and constantly talking about it. After three years, year after year of famine, David inquired of the Lord—he sought the presence of the Lord.

From a conscious standpoint, God is not present where you choose to believe He is not, because you have choose to “Ease God Out” (EGO) of your consciousness and focus on your famine rather than His presence. The secret to all supply is seeking the presence of the Lord!

Are You Practicing the Absence of God?

Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year; and David inquired of the Lord. And the Lord answered, “It is because of Saul and his bloodthirsty house, because he killed the Gibeonites.” 2 Samuel 21:1 NKJV 

Famine is an acute shortage of any good in life. For example, if you’re experiencing a lack of health or well-being, unemployment or under-employment, a lack of finances, broken relationships; not getting your prayers answered—any kind of lack or depravation is a famine. In the face of famine, you must learn to do what David did: inquire of the Lord, i.e., seek His face; seek the presence of the Lord. It is up to you to inquire of the Lord because you are responsible for your famine, and you have the power (Gen. 1:26; Luke 10:19)

Famine is where you are practicing the absence of God. Why? Is it because you believe that God isn’t there? Here’s how you can know that you are practicing the absence of God: consider your mood and your confession—how you feel and how you talk is telling.

If your mood is doom and gloom; fear and uncertainty; murmuring and complaining; griping and fussing; frequently annoyed and irritated; and perhaps, mad enough to “spit nails”, you are probably experiencing a spiritual famine. And, if your confession is: “I’ve got a problem”; “What am I going to do?”; “Why me?” or, “People are lying on me”, you may be experiencing an unabated famine.   Tell me what you’re complaining about, or what you fear and I’ll tell you where you are practicing the absence of God.

God is always present, here and now (Ps. 139:7-8). So, when you’re practicing the absence of God, you can insidiously have a place in your belief system where God isn’t present. The truth is: the only place God isn’t present is where you believe He isn’t.

On the contrary, when you practice the presence of God, you are filled with joy in His presence, and you stand at His right hand, i.e., a position of honor, favor, and power (Ps 16:11). When you inquire of the Lord, something wonderful and marvelous happens, and you’ll begin to feel something awesome. God is good and He has laid up great blessings for you in the shelter of His presence. Yes, God laid up for us before we got here. The thing you desire is seeking you and you’ll find it when you seek the presence of the Lord! (Ps. 31:19-20).

The Answer to Famine

Now there was a famine in the days of David for three years, year after year; and David inquired of the Lord. And the Lord answered, “It is because of Saul and his bloodthirsty house, because he killed the Gibeonites.” 2 Samuel 21:1 NKJV

Jesus healed the sick; raised the dead, casted out devils; fed the multitudes; and, He is still going about doing good—now (Acts 10:38). God is a “Right Now God.” He is the answer to every problem, supply to every need, fulfillment of every desire, the provision that includes every provision, and the greater that includes the lesser. But is there is a way to experience these things now?  Yes, by seeking the face of God, i.e., seeking the presence of the Lord.

When there was a famine in the days of David, he sought the presence of the Lord (inquired), and the Lord answered that it was because Saul had massacred the Gibeonites, whom Joshua and the leaders of Israel had swore an oath not to ever do (Jos. 9). There is always a reason for a famine. Just like God told Solomon, “when I shut up heaven and there is no rain, . . . if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, . . . then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chron. 7:13, 14). A shut up heaven when there is no rain spells a famine in the land (Amos 8:11).

A spiritual famine is an acute shortage; experiencing the lack of any good in life, e.g., health and well-being, employment, finances, relationships, getting your prayers answered; any kind of lack or depravation. David experienced three years of unabated famine. Why? Well, David didn’t do anything about it for three years. Have you noticed how long you can go before you do something about your famine? What do you do about the famine in your life? First, look at what you’re not doing about it. Are you acting like a victim in the face of famine? Are you blaming God and others? You must make the first move because you’re responsible for your famine (Gen. 1:26; 2 Cor. 5:17; Col. 1:13).

David sought the presence of the Lord (Ps. 16:11). He didn’t pray for rain or seek rain; he didn’t register for a class or a “how to” workshop or seminar; nor, did he attend a special conference (Prov. 8:17, 35). He inquired of the Lord—he sought the presence of the Lord.

In your famine, whatever it may be, don’t seek what God has—seek God Himself. For example, God doesn’t give health, wealth, or peace, etc. God is!  Jesus told the Jews who were following Him only for the fish and the loaves, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst” (John 6:35). Jesus didn’t say that he had bread; He said that He was bread! The answer to famine is not rain, but God. Whatever you need, don’t seek the thing; seek God because God is (Heb. 11:6).  The answer to famine is God!
