II Kings 5:20-21 But Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said, “Look, my master has spared Naaman this Syrian, while not receiving from his hands what he brought; but as the Lord lives, I will run after him and take something from him.” 21 So Gehazi pursued Naaman.
In the story of two birds, God has a providence plan for those kinds of bird at a certain place and time. If one of the birds is with young ones, He is going to provide them with more food at the same time and place. But the adventurous bird wanted more of God’s blessing so it manipulated the timing. In our life also, our Provider already set up a providence plan for us and our family. In order to earn more, thinking God is having more for us in His riches; we should not go out of His providence plan. Some extra percentage in wage hike, some extra percent business increase, some extra space around the house, some extra things in our house, these are all the things that we have to check whether we are under His plan or we seeking to get out of His plan. If these things happen without your initiatives, then you may be under God’s abundant blessing. If these things happen or you strive to make it happen with your initiatives then you may be slowly drifting away from His will.
