Your Provision, Your Preparation

Joshua 13:14
Only to the tribe of Levi he had given no inheritance; the sacrifices of the Lord God of Israel made by fire are their inheritance, as He said to them.

Deuteronomy 10:9
Therefore Levi has no portion nor inheritance with his brethren; the Lord is his inheritance, just as the Lord your God promised him.

Your provision is usually very near your responsibility. If the Lord of the Harvest assigns you to work with Him in the Harvest as it ripens in Canada, and you are instead living in Louisiana, your provision is likely to be out of reach and your work will likely seem ineffective and burdensome.

Your responsibility is also an access point to your authority. Jesus did not call the seven sons of Sceva the priest to cast demons out of people. They therefore had no authority to use His name as they did it. They did have authority over demons as sons of Adam and Noah, but those were not the credentials they tried to use in the event described by Luke in Acts 19. If they had tried that, they may have found some success.

Properly getting your instructions from the King regarding His desire for your life should be pretty easy, as hard as that is to believe on days. The Holy Spirit works in us to want to do what He wants us to do. When we submit to that much, He then works in us to be able to do what He wants us to do (Philippians 2:12,13).

When we submit to the whole process for fulfilling our responsibilities, we are being prepared by the processes that the responsibilities press us through, with the point being preparation for authority.

The best of everything is ahead. The path to the best is pretty awesome too, though.
