Kingdom solutions are solutions based on ancient wisdom. Writings that encourage people to look to the King of Kings for advice about everything and everything. In fact, it is hard to find any topic, even things that were unheard of when they were written, that you cannot find some kind of good idea about how to make the situation better.
The beauty of this advice is that it is tried and tested. I found where it said it was only stupid people who hired a servant and then struggled to feed themselves. Well, I don’t know many people who employ people as servants these days but I do know people who employ machines as servants. Some of them spend so much on these machines whether they are electronic gadgets or cars that they struggle to buy the things that they really need like food. Crumbs there have been times when I have been guilty of doing something very similar myself.
An example of a Kingdom solution
I was looking around for some ideas what to plant in a new garden and I got lost looking at ideas related to growing food. Ok, I was thinking ahead about the book I started on sowing a business as well so I had something of an excuse. While I was wandering around I came across a website called Foundations for Farming. The more I looked at it the more I realised that this was a kingdom solution.
It was not just the personal story of the founder that demonstrates this, but the way that he discovered this system of farming. On top of that, this system has been used to help many struggling people. In fact, it is a system that has helped a lot of people out of the captivity of poverty.
This method of farming is an adaptation of what happens in creation itself. Rather than man imposing his order on creation and doing things his way. It aims to copy the natural processes. Rather than learning from a textbook or teachers in a college, the classroom is creation itself.
Rather than ploughing the land and then sowing seed. The idea is to leave what they call God’s blanket in place and plant seeds by using an artificial animals foot. Animals make holes and seeds fall into them. The seeds then come into contact with the soil and can start growing. Rather than an animal deciding where to dig a hole it is man who decides. Man uses a hoe in the same way as the animal uses its foot.
Once this idea had been tested on the farm that he managed and was proved to work. He started with a small trial and then gradually expanded the area that used this system until it was used on the whole farm. It worked so well that that farm made a profit when others around about it were going out of business.
It was tested and tried using a kingdom principle i.e. start small so you learn how to do it well and then expand. Once it was tried and tested on that large farm it was developed into a system that could be used by small farmers. In other words, those with just a little bit of land were taught to how to grow enough food to feed themselves.
The importance of finding Kingdom solutions
The problem that many people in the kingdom have is that they believe that the only thing that they need to do is get people through the door and their job is done. They forget that one way to get people through the door is to meet their actual needs.
The king does not want to see people experiencing any kind of lack or having anything missing or incomplete. In fact, he wants his people to prosper in every area of their lives. He wants lives to change. Think about it, if people are happy and prospering then it benefits the king as well as them.
Remember the old story about the wind and sun. They had a competition as they tried to persuade a man to take his coat off. The wind blew hard and tried to separate the man from his coat by force. The man only held onto his coat tighter and tighter. The sun shone and shone. The warm and kindness soon persuaded the man to take his coat off. It was the kindness of the sun that encouraged the man to take his coat off rather than the force applied by the sun.
If you want people to do things your way then you are more likely to achieve your ends if you are kind to them. Provide them with benefits and solve their problems then they are more likely to listen to you and do things your way.
Not just that, but those who truly know this king, know that the nickname king of love is really appropriate. A love that is shown in wanting to see people escape from lack of any kind and find a way out of all forms of captivity. A love that wants to see them prospering in every way imaginable (yes not just money but family life). In other words, kingdom solutions are really the best way of helping people find their dream life.
