“God Will Provide”

“God Will Provide”

We have to know that God will provide for us.  Get to a point where you say, “I know God can do it for me.”  The only thing that stops God from providing for us is disobedience.  For example, God could only bless Abram if he obeyed.

Genesis 12:1- 3 (NIV)
The Lord had said to Abram, “Leave your country, your people and your father’s household and go to the land I will show you.  I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.  I will bless those who bless you; and whoever curses you I will curse; and all people will be blessed through you.”  So Abram left, as the Lord had told him; and Lot went with him.

* When you walk with God, it doesn’t matter that the world is going through a recession.

* Don’t let anyone run you way from the place God has called you to be.

God provided for Abram (who is now called Abraham) because he was obedient when his faithfulness was tested.

Genesis 22:9-13 (NIV)
When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it.  He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.  Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.  But the angel of the Lord called out to Him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham! ”  ”Here I am,” he replied.  ”Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said.  ”Do not do anything to him.  Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”  Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns.  He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.

Something to think about: If you have children, make sure they know God will provide them.  There may come a day when Mom or Dad can’t be there, and only the Lord will be able to help them.  One of the greatest lessons we can learn, is to depend on God, rather than ourselves.  His strength is made perfect in our weakness.
