God is the Great Provider

God is the Great Provider

God is the Great Provider, providing what we require in every situation.

One of God's names is Jehovah Jireh, which translates as "the Lord our provider" or "the Lord will supply," respectively. We can take comfort in the knowledge that God is our source for all we require and that He is concerned about everything we care about. There is no need so insignificant that He is unaware of it, and there is no need so great that He is unable to care for us.

He is omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere at all times), and omnipotent (having unlimited power) (all powerful). (See Jeremiah 42:11 AMP for more information.)

According to the Bible, He's...

• Our fortress, refuge, and hiding place (Psalm 91);

• The one who comforts us (2 Corinthians 1:3); and

• Our healer (Isaiah 53:6). (Psalm 103:3)

• The source of all wisdom (James 1:5)

• And everything else we may possibly require!

The Lord is your source of provision. He cares about you and He has a nice plan for your future in mind. He wants to bless you so that you can carry out His plan and purpose in your life...and so that you can truly enjoy your life.

Moreover, He reveals Himself to us in His Word, revealing who He is and how we can gain access to everything we require via Christ.

Unfortunately, we can lose out on God's plans for our life when we go to people for assistance rather than to God. This is because we look to people for assistance rather than to God. God will work via the people He places in our lives to assist us, but we must first go to Him and allow Him to choose the most effective manner to satisfy our needs in the present.

In Philippians 4:19 (AMP), the Bible reads, "And my God will abundantly provide (fulfill to the brim) all of your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus," meaning "according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

"Every Christ Jesus," says God in this verse, and he desires to supply those needs for us. Having said that, we can't just take this one verse and expect it to provide us with everything we need without also considering the context in which it was written.

In Matthew 6:33 (AMP), Jesus states, "But seek (aim at and strive after) first and foremost His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things will be given to you as a bonus."

When we seek things instead of God, we are not putting our attention where it should be. Our connection with God must be our number one priority at all times, because He is the source of all we require. The more we seek God, the more we learn about Him and the more we understand the correct way to live, the more we may be confident that He will look after all that concerns us and provide for all of our needs.

In my experience, when I spend more time seeking God's face rather than His hand - what He can give me and do for me – my desires and thoughts become more in line with God's wishes and thoughts. Moreover, when I spend more time praying for God to show me how to live in love and treat people well, I'm more likely to want what God has for me - what's best for me – because my mind and heart are focused on the proper things.

"Whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and persistently seek Him [out]," according to Hebrews 11:6 (AMP). Romans 8:17 also states that if we are God's offspring, we are "heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ" (as opposed to "heirs of the world") (NKJV). As born-again Christians, this means that God has equipped us with everything we require in Christ. We only need to establish a personal relationship with Him in order to gain access to it.
