God Our Provider Pt 3

Prov 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. (GNB)

Before we can trust God to be our provider, we must be convinced that it is His will to do so. Let’s first look at the cross. When Jesus died on the cross, as the last Adam, He won back everything the First Adam had lost; one of which was prosperity.

God provided everything Adam needed in the garden of Eden. Food to eat, protection and work to give man focus and fulfillment. All man had to do was obey God and look to Him and all these things were guaranteed; but we know Adam disobeyed God and gave his allegiance to the devil. Thus Adam fell into sin and was banished from God’s presence (Gen 2:8-10, 15-17; Gen 3.)

He now had to provide for himself through painful toil and the sweat of his brow (Gen 3: 17-19). The channel through which Adam could trust God to provide for him (his relationship with God) was now broken; but at Calvary Jesus as the last Adam, repaired this relationship and reconciled man back to God. Thus man can now look to God once more to be his provider.

As Christians we now have to move away from the mindset that says I must rely on myself to provide and develop a new mindset that says, God is now my provider and I must trust him and keep my eyes fixed firmly upon Him; We trust God through His Word and the promises He has given in His Word.

Phil 4:19 And with all his abundant wealth through Christ Jesus, my God will supply all your needs. (GNT)

Matt 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (NKJV)

These are just 2 of the promises God has spoken to us assuring us of His will not just to provide but give us an abundance so we can build the Kingdom of God.

The No 1 reason why we fail to trust God is worry which is why Jesus addresses this problem and shows us how to overcome it and put ourselves in the place of receiving God’s provision; We will look at this in our next Blog.

Meditation Point: Am I assured through God’s word that it is His will to provide for all my needs.
