The Truth About God's Provision Part 14
Whether finances are tight, living conditions poor, or our health is failing, we all have one thing in common—struggle is a part of life. But God’s provision comes even in the bleakest moments. It may come in a form you don’t expect, but He provides nonetheless.
Ultimately, God is in control of all things. The success that we experience in our lives comes from the goodness of our Heavenly Father.
Faith isn’t a mere word or statement . . . it’s a life-altering decision to follow Christ. True belief in God goes deeper than words. Are you just going through the motions? Or does your trust in God go deep?
Can you think of a time or two in your life when you were frustrated with God? Well, of course! We’ve all had our share of confusion and disappointment. Don’t allow disappointment or bitterness to cloud your view.
Even people of faith have moments of doubt. Perhaps you’re experiencing a time of uncertainty right now.
Sometimes God asks us to step out on faith in ways we would never imagine. Perhaps you’ve had to place your trust in God’s provision during a financial struggle, or you’ve sought God’s healing during a major battle with your health.
Ever ponder the assumptions we make about God? “Well, the God I know would never allow me to lose my job or give me a spouse who’d have an affair.” And the list goes on and on.
Now, here’s an honest question. Is God enough? Without the promise of good health, financial security, even the promise of Heaven . . . is God enough?
Whether it’s a spur-of-the-moment road trip, or responding to an eloquent speaker at a conference . . . spontaneity can be exhilarating. But sometimes the choices we make on the fly aren’t the best in the long run.
Experiencing God through His provision, His faithfulness, His sovereignty . . . leaves an indelible mark on our lives. Perhaps you’re praying for God’s intervention in your life.
Is the Bible a history book . . . showing us only what’s past? Or can the lessons in the Scriptures be as current as today’s newspaper?
