TOPIC: HIS POWER OF PROVISION
Read: Psalm 78:15-27
MEMORISE: And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
God is only provider who cannot fail, because all power belongs to Him (Psa. 62:11). When God miraculously provided a ram for Abraham in place of Isaac, He (Abraham) called His name Jehovah-Jireh *
(Gen. 22:12-14). May He reveal Himself as Jehovah Jireh in your life too. Amen.
God’s power of provision is creative. It provides something out of nothing. God used this power to make a way in the wilderness (Isa. 43:19). He would do same for you, if you can put your trust in Him (Jer. 17:5-8). This provided water in a parched land for the children of Israel (Psa. 78:15-16). Are you in such a situation? You can trust God for His provision. This same power provided miraculous food for the people in declaration of His power: Yet He had commanded the clouds above, and opened the doors of heaven, had rained down manna on them to eat, and given them of the bread of heaven. Men ate angels’ food; He sent them food to the full (Psa. 78:23-25).
You can also make this power work for you by positioning yourself well before God. This power will work for you, if you give God first place in your life. This is the charge of our Lord Jesus: But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you (Matt. 6:33). The power of God would provide all what you are running after without stress, if you can give Him first place in your life. Seek God wholeheartedly and let Him occupy your time (Psa. 34:10). This power is still there to work for you, if you learn to duly follow divine direction for your allocation. This power worked for Abraham when he followed God’s directive (Gen. 12:1-2). This same power worked for Isaac when he stayed where God wanted him to be (Gen. 26). It is your turn for this power to work for you. Remain with, and in Christ.
1. Father, reveal Yourself as the only great provider in my life, in Jesus’ name.
2. Help me, O Lord, to be in the right location for my divine allocation.
3. Pray that the grace to manage their homes in God’s perfect will and to enjoy divine provisions should come upon Christian couples.
