You shall drink the milk of the Gentiles,
And milk the breast of kings;
You shall know that I, the Lord, am your Savior
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.
Today’s opening Scripture speaks of sucking the milk of the Gentiles and the breast of kings. What does this mean? It means that God is going to cause you to step into prepared resources. Breast milk is some fine food already prepared and ready to suck. Breast milk is a symbol of grace; it stands for prepared stuff made ready for you. It is plug and use kind of provision. It is entering into the labour of others. Others have labored and you have entered into their harvest. So, sucking the milk of the Gentiles and the breast of kings is entering into their labour or harvest. God says that’s your portion. Why? The Lord wants you to know that He is the Lord, your Saviour and Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. When you begin to enter into the labour of others, you begin to gain speed in matters regarding destiny. God wants you to know that He is Your Saviour and Redeemer by bringing you into the labour of others. This kind of provision is in the arena of salvation. Note the reason for bringing this dimension of provision your way: that you may know that He is your Saviour and Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. Such provisions are a vital part of God’s saving grace in Christ.
God will bring you into the labour of others by favour. By the favour of God, you eat at the table of men of worth; people who are loaded with resources. Remember that God enriched Egypt because of Israel and made the Israelites leave Egypt with loads of wealth on their way to the Promise Land. God made this happen by giving the children of Israel favour in the sight of the Egyptians. The Bible tells us that they spoiled the Egyptians. There are great men that God has bestowed wealth upon just because of you, and there are people who do not know God, Gentiles, under whose control are riches which God has laid up for you. Understand that the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the righteous. As you walk with the Lord in obedience of faith, He will take you a step at a time into the abundance He has prepared for you before the world began.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION):
The favour of God is upon me in the Name of Jesus Christ. As I go about my business, I enter into prepared stuff, prepared places, and prepared opportunities. I suck the milk of the Gentiles and suck the breast of kings. Amen.
