Why does the Bhagavatam say that we shouldn’t endeavor even for our necessities?

why did in srimad bhagvatam 7.15.16, it is told that we should not even endeavour to earn our livelihood . lord krishna will supply all our basic neccesities automatically . isn’t  that it is contradicting the karma yoga concept , in which it is said work in krishna consciousness . and normally anyone who works , will work for earning his livelihood only . so shouldnt we even try to earn atleast for maintaining our body and soul together, if not greed . is it not we are triying to run away from our work , and in the name of god, expecting everything will come automatically . is it practical today ? i may have misunderstood the above verse, if yes then in what context it can be reconciled .
