Pen 4 The Lord

Seeds of Strength Hope & Encouragement

Isn’t it amazing when a single word can instantaneously trigger a certain memory from our past?

Today’s word for Five Minute Friday is PROVIDE… when I hear the word provide, the first thing I think of is Philippians 4:19. “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus.”  Every time I hear that verse, it takes me back to my early days with the Lord. Since I came to Him empty, body, soul, mind and spirit and even my bank account, He taught me to rely on Him for everything.

     Now, twenty-some years later, I’ve learned that we don’t only ask Him to provide monetary things, but every single thing we need.  He provides the very breath we breathe. The roof over our head to the soles of the shoes that protect our feet. And, he graciously provides for everything we need to further His kingdom.

Sometimes when we ask for things, our prayers are not answered the way we like, or the way we believed things should happen.  But, when we rely completely on the Lord, He will reveal to us in His time why that certain prayer was not answered in the way we would have liked.

Today, as we are in the midst of the Easter season, let us remember what Jesus did for us. Let us recall the most significant sacrifice that Jesus paid. He PROVIDED for a debt that we owe, and yet a debt we could never pay.

   So you ask, does He provide all our needs? Oh yes, from here in this life today and right on through eternity to spend forever with Him.

  1. Del, so much truth in your words. God is always faithful to provide what we need. And sometimes, He doesn’t give us what we think we need. But, He knows us best. I’m thankful He gives us what’s needed to further His kingdom. And I’m so glad He wants relationship with us. He wants us to come to Him with our needs, our hearts.

    Great post!

    God is so gracious to us to provide everything we need and yet we determine to focus on the things we didn’t receive. His provision is certainly worthy of our gratitude, especially the price Jesus paid for us all. Thanks for this post, Del!
