Just in time or Just in case?

If you have read your bible, it is not difficult to notice that God is not impressed with storing. When your heart is dependent on what you have in store rather than the supplier himself, it is disappointing.

In Exodus, God provided manna to his people only for a day at a time. Just in time each day. And those who kept some - just in case God fails to deliver on the next day…well you know the story.

It is not without a reason that Jesus taught us to ask for our daily bread. Not monthly bread or yearly bread. God wants to see our face each day and each day he wants to make sure that our faith is on him.

Toyota, the most successful car manufacturer in the world initiated and perfected a manufacturing philosophy called Just In Time (JIT). In simple terms, The JIT concept is ideally to eliminate inventory. Bring supplies at the exact time you need them. Not before. Not after. Many companies have significantly cut their overall cost by applying this concept.

In a car assembly process, if the tire supplier cannot deliver exactly when you need the tires, then of course you are in trouble. That is why JIT works only when you have very dependable suppliers.

Our father is more than capable to supply whatever we need in life. If we need it, rest assured that it will be delivered just in time. The question is, can we rely on his promise and remain rested? Can we abide and live with God’s JIT supply system?

The courier giant, FedEx has an ad campaign which says “Relax, it’s FedEx!” Of course FedEx is a big global company, resourceful and with great reputation. It certainly can promise that.

How much more then do we have to relax when the supplier who promised is the owner of the universe itself?

A man of God has no plan B. His only plan, which totally depends on the almighty is impossible to fail.

So why bother having back-up plans in store?

Relax, it’s God!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I will amen that one for sure. Praise God! Wonderful message..

Very well emphasised about the need to depend on God for our daily bread. Bread in its broader term which includes all of our needs. Hmm!!, I just wish there is a way to get rid of tiresome inventories. Proverbs 6:6 NIV, Go to the ant, you sluggard, consider its way and be wise. How about wisdom we are told to learn from the ants about inventory? Why did Jesus instruct the disciples to collect the leftovers after the miracle of multiplication of the fishes and loaves of bread? For sure that left over actually is properly documented and kept for future use unless I am wrong.
