Exercise Your Faith in God’s Resources!
“The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but those that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.” Psalm 34:10
In discussion with one of my friends on this topic, Christians and God’s provision, we argued that when can we say, is God providing for my needs? Is it when things are tough or when things are rosy? As we try to find answers to this, let’s kick start this devotion as the holy spirit takes us on this journey.
One of the key ways God provides resources to His people is by exercising their faith in him. Most times, people don’t exercise their faith but complain to God and expect results. The point of our need is when our faith is going to be put to the test. The response to our needs at that time shows the level of our faith in God. Exercising your faith in God requires you to know what to do to connect to the provision He has reserved for you.
Psalm 107:9 says, “God satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”
God does not withhold from his people; He has preserved and made available enough for everything; we might need a check (Mathew 6:25–34). Nothing in this world you are looking for, you can get because God already made everything available. Either you come up with a new idea for new products or come up with something; making it happen is already available. It’s only through faith that you will find out how much more God has provided.
Thus, whether you have enough or little, always trust Jehovah Jireh for his provision. Whether you are developing a new idea or renovating an existing one, always trust him and keep on trusting Him. How to get things done comes from faith in God’s word. He knows what we need and wants so that he will provide us with the right tools. For he is the one that gave you the power to get wealth. Put your faith to work, and he will never fail you. In Psalm 23:1, David said, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
1. Thank you, Jesus, for all provisions you have provided me. I am thankful!
2. The lord is my shepherd, and I shall not want any good thing in life.
3. You will always have more than enough in Jesus’ name. Amen
