Text for Today: Matt. 6:25-34 “For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” (vs. 32).
The best way to handle life is to put your life in God’s hands. God is the giver of all good gifts and he is our provider.
This is a matter for the human heart because, even as Christians, we struggle with economic and financial issues as we learn to depend on God for our supply. We are often driven by anxious thoughts in these troubled times, asking, “How are we going to survive?”
Jesus speaks directly into these worries when he says, therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the next seven days, I am going to share with you some powerful principles of God’s provision.
In order to survive financial and economic uncertainty, you need to know thoroughly and to be walking daily in the principles of divine provision. There are no short cuts or slick answers but, as you begin to apply these principles to your life and live by them, you will be amazed at how miracle after miracle of divine provision will come your way!
First, I want you to know that God knows your every need, even before you tell Him. God knows your need – he knows about your bills. God knows what you need even before you ask. He understands more than you can possibly know.
From our further study for today, He knew Elijah’s need and was ready to make full provision for it. It is impossible for a loving father, who has the means, to refrain from meeting the needs of his children. God has the means to meet your every need.
You are a Champion!
Further Study: 1 Kings 17:1-16.
- Father, I thank you for your mighty works in my life.
- Dear Lord, watch over your word and perform it in my life.
- My life shall not be barren of divine provision in Jesus’ name.
- I reject every spirit of lack and not enough in Jesus’ name.
