What is a ‘measure’?

We know what measure of food and rest to take, but there is a measure of God’s providence which we often fail to realize. God has a measure for everything in our lives. God is a God of balance. When we seek God’s measure, we are seeking what is appointed for us this brings true prosperity of soul bringing along with it health, peace and wellness. Bible says in III John 2, Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

How much is enough?

As it is written in Exodus 16:18,

And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

Only God knows the equilibrium. Only He can keep us between too much and lack. How to know how much is right for me depends on how much we trust in God to supply our need.

Our blessings are taken care of when we seek His measure.

What does the measure do?

Gods measure add blessings to our lives. Bible says in Matthew 6:33,

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

The manna, that the Israelites received added, health, life and peace to them. What they did not seek was added to their lives. And when they sought, other than God’s will, brought undesired results. When we seek God, He bestows on us blessings according to measure that which He ahs appointed for us. God who ordained our salvation knows and has prepared all that we need for us.

God would also want you to understand that more seeking of God does not make us eligible to receive more blessing. God is not in barter business. If we are seeking God only for earthly things, we are counted miserable. Bible says I Corinthians 15:19,

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

When we seek things from God we will always be seeking the measure of things from God, not God. Therefore let us start seeking God and be assured that God knows the measure.
