Resourcefulness

Change Through Values

YOUT shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

Power was in the hands of the greedy for so long. It is time to take a stand in the faith that God has given us through His word.

Resourcefulness is believing in the fulfillment of the promises of God. The children of the righteous will never beg bread.

Divine purpose always attract divine provision. Our pursuit of national transformation, of a new breed without greed, of peace, joy and righteousness established in the Philippines could only be realized when God is the provider.

These take an unlimited supply, both material and spiritual, in abundance, in overflow, in generosity, in exponential.

The dreams of God for this nation will be fulfilled when we learn to tap in the resources He has entrusted to us, as value-laden stakeholders and partners. It is because of His faithfulness, goodness, and mercy, He has opened the heavens so that we will never be thirsty again.

We cannot give what we don’t have, and we don’t have anything unless we receive it from the Lord. Anything out of His purpose, anything out of His provision is slavery. But we are the free. Freely we receive, freely we give.

Creativity is not a mood. Creativity is not a gift. It is the very nature of God inside of us. We are created in His image and in His likeness. As He established the heavens and the earth with His word, we, as His appointed statesmen, nation builders, values restoration officers, living heroes, carriers of justice, can create things with our words.

It is now then relevant to examine what we have been creating through our words. Death and life comes from the power of our tongues, and it must be a strategic tool to bless our families and the whole nation from the reservoir of our hearts.

It has been recorded that God turns beauty from ashes. He is a multiplier, a miracle worker. With Him, all things are possible. Like Him, we can choose to see abundance instead of lack, gratitude instead of complaints, wellness instead of illness, solutions instead of problems, life instead of corruption.

We are atmosphere changers, and we are created to inspire people to become the best and to live to the fullest. We replicate His image, we reproduce His likeness, we propagate the good, the virtuous, the value-laden.

Resourcefulness then is in our fingerprints, in our brain cells, in our eyesight, in every heartbeat, in every smile, in our DNA as Filipinos. Whatever we create is marked with excellence through love, is an original just like each of us.

He also made us stewards of everything, to take dominion over all. We don’t represent ourselves, we must not use, abuse, or misuse anyone or anything, as if we were the ones who created them. We as public servants, fathers and mothers, teachers, leaders, must value everyone, their gifts, their talents, and their personhood. Celebrate uniqueness.

Appreciate differences. All will work together for the good of those who love God, country, and fellowmen, and if we are generous, the right company of people will come to help us reach the destiny of this nation.

It takes selflessness to fuel resourcefulness. Anything of greed, will hoard the treasures God owns as it is written that the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.

Our world has fabricated counterfeits, substitutes, false gods, fake news, and temporary relationships.

Resourceful people are full of justice and compassion. Every little thing they do has the intent of blessing the nation. They have the aggressive faith and explicit obedience to implement God’s instructions in establishing righteousness that exalts a nation.

Each one of us is free to represent His image and His likeness, to live holy and pure lives, so that whatever will flow out of us and whatever we touch, the impact is so great, it can reach and resource even the next generation who are still to be born.

This week, let God be your Source, your all in all, and be in turn, resourceful. He is the air we breathe. He is the bread of Life. He is the Living water. He is the Light of the World. He is everything we need. Arise in the faith that can move mountains and begin to create in that space the abundant life God has given you.
