Did you know that God is your provider?
Sure, maybe you’ve heard that in sermons before, or from a friend who didn’t really understand all that you were going through. But is it really true?
With just a glimpse into the Scriptures, it’s easy to see how faithful God is as a provider.
God provided for the Israelites who came out of Egypt time and time again. He led them and protected them with pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night. He provided food in the form of manna when they were hungry, He provided water from a rock when they were thirsty, he provided a way through the Red Sea (on dry land!) when they were being pursued by the Egyptians.
He provided a lamb for Abraham to sacrifice instead of his son Isaac. He provided a fish to swallow Jonah and save him from drowning (even after he deliberately disobeyed!). He provides for the birds who do not sow or reap or store up their own food. He provided healing for many during his years of ministry, and he will provide for you!
God never changes, and can be trusted as your provider today!
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
- Philippians 4:19 NLT
Lord, thank you that the Scriptures show that time and time again You are a great provider. Help me to trust you as my provider today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
