“Cast Your Bread On The Waters”

Secrets from Ecclesiastes 11

Ecclesiastes 11:1 - Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days.

Ecclesiastes was written by one of the wisest men that ever lived.

When God speaks about bread, He is talking about those things that you have which you can commit to Him such as your talents, finances, ministry, and your gifting. The Bible teaches us that this is the way of the Kingdom. I do not know why it works this way, but it does.

So many of us struggle in so many areas of our lives because we tend to compute the Word with our natural minds. God encourages us to do things His way no matter what.

Proverbs 14:12 - There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

If we want to come to a place of abundance in our life, we need to listen to what God says regardless of how silly it may sound to our ears.

The bread that Solomon was speaking about is anything we have. He was the wisest man that ever lived. But it was not his wisdom, it was Gods wisdom.

We all have different talents, abilities, and gifts. However, if we do not throw them away we will not be effective in the Kingdom. Solomon said, “Cast it.” There are things that need to be cast away Gods way, so that when it returns it becomes a blessing.

Many people are in spiritual offices representing God but they rely on their own talents and gifts. They have never ever given their gift to God. So many do not want to do that because it does not make sense. For example, what sense does it make for me to cast my finances away? You have to cast your finances because that is your provision. God wants us to rely on Him for His supernatural provision and not what we can provide in our own strength.

When you cast something that is precious to you and walk away from it, the water is going to take it away. You cannot take it back. God’s way is the way for Kingdom living though it may not to make any sense at all.

Nothing that is cast away Gods way is ever lost. Anything that you have cast away will always last. Casting means you give it away.

There are things we have to walk away from. When we have problems with people, we may have to cast them away so that God can deal with them. We have to remove ourselves from the situation.

When things just do not work, remove them and walk away and ask God to deal with them. “Lord, you deal with it because you know the dynamics. I do not know what is going on, but you do.” That is God's wisdom and that is God's way.

God is teaching us to be obedient to His way because He wants to bless you. That is God's wisdom. That is the only way for your ministry to be birthed, or for your marriage to be blessed, or for finances to come your way, or for your talents to be enhanced. Give it God and when He is ready bring it back, it will come back in a different form and it will be better and be a blessing and not a burden.

Proverbs 10:22 - The blessing of the Lord makes one rich and He adds no sorrow with it.

The same applies to cares. Cast then on Jesus. Let God deal with it because He knows the problem and he knows the solution.

So many of God’s people are living a miserable life in the present because they think they are going to have a good life in heaven. You can have quality of life now. You can enjoy health and the healing now and do not have to wait for it in the future. God will provide all your needs. But there are things that need to be lifted off your life first.

Some of us tend to carry burdens that are not ours to carry. You need to enjoy every day of your life. God has not called you to misery. God has called you to a life of joy, peace, and abundance.

Here are a few things you can apply in your life right away.

1. No deposit, no return

Ecclesiastes 11:1 - Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days.

If you give nothing you will receive nothing. That is a Kingdom principle. If you do not give things over to God, God cannot fix it.

If you do not pray, you cannot have answered prayer. If you do not give an offering, you cannot receive a harvest. If you do not witness to people, you are never going to have souls saved.
