GOD WILL PROVIDE

And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus

Philippians 4:19

Kingdom Citizen, God knows you have financial needs and when you are faithful in giving your tithes, He will supply your every need. It can be hard sometimes to pay your bills. It can be hard sometimes to get ahead. God knows every challenge you are going through.

HE KNOWS AND HE WILL PROVIDE!

In today’s post, I want to help you better understand the truth of God’s Word because He is Jehovah-Jireh—The Lord God who PROVIDES! God cares about every detail of your life and what you are going through, He cares about the lack you are experiencing, He cares about your suffering, He cares about what you are dealing with financially, emotionally or physically and I want to talk to you today about God being your Provider. The scripture says that GOD IS A PROVIDER and my message today is simply that.

You may be saying I’m not seeing God provide for me, but I want to show you how to position yourselves to experience the provisions of God for your life.

In regard to our scripture for today in Philippians chapter 4 and verse 19, I want to stir up your faith for what God wants to do in your life.

We will always be frustrated when we have a negative outlook on life or when we try to provide what we need for ourselves. We will experience peace, joy and freedom when we learn to completely rely on God as our Provider. We often use Philippians 4:19 in speaking of our financial needs. But God is not limited to just taking care of our financial needs because many times our needs go beyond what money can do for us.

IT IS GOD’S WILL TO SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS!

ALL means ALL people of God. That doesn’t mean you can be undisciplined. You still need to be a good steward over what you have. God will not only supply enough for you to live on but He will give you an overflow so you can be a blessing to others and support Kingdom work.

There is something we need to do first in order to obtain God’s provisions. You need to become a faithful tither, the scripture says, in Malachi 3 that when you don’t tithe you are a robber of God and you are cursed with a curse which means God speaks negatively of you. But when you are faithful in your tithe and offerings God says He will open up the windows of Heaven and pour you out a blessing that you won’t have room enough to receive, He says He will rebuke the devour for your sake. Then what you need to do, and this is really important—believe that God will PROVIDE for you. When we take care of God’s business God in turns takes care of our business.

HOW DO YOU TAKE CARE OF GOD’S BUSINESS?

You support the Kingdom through your giving :

  • So that souls can be saved
  • So that the message of the Kingdom can be taken around the world
  • So that His Kingdom can advance
  • So that sick people can be healed
  • So that that broken people can be restored

Let’s take care of God’s business and watch Him take care of ours.

Amen?!

No matter what you may be facing right now, be encouraged because GOD WILL PROVIDE.

Are you looking at you or are you looking at God?

BEYOND MY LIMITATIONS

Anytime we look at ourselves we see inadequacies. This
is fear, when you look at your life and think “I don’t have what it takes.” I
don’t have what it takes to be a Kingdom Citizen, a leader, a parent. Have you
ever felt this way?

It’s important to understand that God doesn’t want us
to feel this way. A lot of people in Christianity confuse this with humility.
They think God wants us to feel this way. God wants us to feel worthless and we
are just here existing.

This is not true at all.

My prayer for you and myself is that our eyes and
hearts be opened to the power of God, that we see God’s power manifested in our
lives.

How great is God’s power?

He upholds the world by the word of His power (Hebrews
1:3).

God wants to transform us into thinking “I don’t…

When God doesn't change your circumstances around

my way your way

God could deliver you today—He has the power—to deliver you from whatever situation is causing you irritation, frustration and pain. And since He can, you probably feel that He should. Why would God delay when He can deliver you today? How often do we beg God to give us something we want or to get us out of something that we don’t want? We plead for Him to change our circumstances. We implore Him to bring a change.

Sometimes, however, God says no, or wait or seemingly nothing at all…

Can I help you today? Stop begging God to change your circumstances and start praying for God to change you.

I’m not saying we shouldn’t be persistent in prayer. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t pray more than once. But sometimes we need to understand that His grace is sufficient. Paul prayed three times for God to remove his thorn in the flesh. Now, we don’t know what that thorn was, but it bothered Paul so much that He prayed three times for it to be removed. And God said my grace is sufficient (2 Corinthians 12:8). We can sling snot, cry or do whatever we think may change God’s mind, but if He chooses not to remove your circumstance, He will give you the grace to go through it. God knows what’s best for us, better than we know what is best for us. We may think our plan is best, but if God doesn’t remove your circumstance, its because He has a better plan. Wow, that’s humbling! But who are we to tell the God who upholds the world by the Word of His power (Hebrews 1:3) otherwise?

Still, we beg and plead for a change in our circumstances….

Lord, why this financial hardship!”

Lord, “I can’t take no more of this!”.

This prevents me from being a witness and sharing the gospel. I’m being hindered from glorying your name, because I am in this circumstance.

Do we really think God doesn’t know what He’s doing? Do we really think we know better for our lives than God does?

Welcome to going through trials and tribulations

Not what you wanted to hear huh? What if we lived our lives in such a way that we see everything that happens in our lives through the lens of Romans 8:28?

Having to ride the bus because you don’t have a car? Perhaps God wants you to share the Gospel with someone on the bus.

Raising a rebellious child? Maybe there will be someone who crosses your path who God wants you to mentor and they need to see God’s peace through you in the midst of a heartbreaking situation.

Your circumstance may be to humble you or another or maybe to introduce you or another to a peace that surpasses all understanding. The circumstances you find yourself in will serve in the purpose and plan our great God has for your life.

Put it all in His Hands

Whatever it is, unwanted circumstance you face, big or small, remember to put it all in His Hands. No matter how difficult your circumstances, God’s grace is sufficient to see you through!
