Deuteronomy 30:9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous (this literally means that God’s priority will be to give you prosperity; it also means once you have used what you needed there is just as much left over) in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
Deuteronomy 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments (more specific to the law; this is how you stay out of trouble) and his statutes (applies to every decree made by God, whether written or spoken; this is how you live the promises) which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
If you stay away from blame you get blessing.
Some are looking at the desolation of the moment and not using what God gave you in excess. The excess was not to store up in memory; it was not to be thrown away in the trash bins and garbage cans like it ain’t any good anymore; for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish…
May of the blessings were to apply at a later date; it was to expend in the valley of nothing; it was to be a supply when scarcity was in the land. Some of us need to go back to the pantry of prophecies and find that non-perishable promise and use it. Why is it dormant? Why is it forgotten? Your experience doesn’t have an expiration date. What you have lasts forever. What you believe can’t be broken. What you own can’t be exhausted.
Think about the fragments that remained. Mat 14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven (some are looking on the earth and wondering why nothing is multiplying, no ground is being gained, no breakthrough seems to be imminent; but we have to look up to heaven; we can’t just see things on earth as all the work of hell; Psalm 121:1-8), he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude (Jesus wants us to take it from the cross to the crowd). Mat 14:20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. (God leaves more than what he started with…this is why the end of a thing is better than the beginning Ecclesiastes 7:8) Mat 14:21 And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children…listen now.
