Worthy of Provision Pt 4

Faith Building

We are looking at 3 keys to God’s provision. We’ve looked at 2: Made Worthy & Made Holy. Let’s look at the 3rd: FAITH.

Believe it or not, I want us to downgrade, ‘faith’. I want us to lower the bar! Why? Most of us have read books by or about, Smith Wigglesworth, Rees Howells, John. G. Lake. etc. These were great men of God who moved in a remarkable degree of faith. Such faith can make us feel as if we have insignificant, insubstantial and minimal faith because we have not achieved anything like the results of these men.

Let me reassure you. Smith Wiggelsworth was a plumber, Rees Howells was a coal miner. Both these men started with the same degree of faith as you and I. They built on that faith and received the revelation knowledge that enabled them to move into ‘great faith’.

You and I are also, men & women of faith. When we became born again, God deposited in our spirit, ‘the measure or degree of faith’.

Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. (KJV)

Did you notice, it was,the measure of faith not, a measure of faith. A measure specifies a quantity, whereas the measure is endless.

God deposited His faith within us so we could believe His Word and receive from Him what we want and need. So  how do I grow my faith. Start small. The next time worry, fear or anxiety come calling, take a promise of God such as:

Prov 3:5,6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;  In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.  (NKJV)

Now, give your worry to God and receive from Him the promise that He will direct your paths. The word, ‘direct’ means to make prosperous, pleasant and upright. Now meditate on Jesus and His word.

You may take those thoughts of worry back into your mind. Choose to give them back to God again and practice leaving them there. Eventually you will win through and be at peace in your heart and mind.

You will see God deliver you and deal with that worried situation. Now you can rejoice in the Lord for His goodness. But what’s happened?  You’ve now grown in your faith in God.

Once we’ve proved God and His word, we can prove Him again, and again, and again, and we find our faith developing beyond what we thought possible.

Now: let’s put these 3 keys together.

1) We now know we are worthy to receive God’s provision.

2) We now know we are holy enough to receive God’s provision.

3) We now know we have the faith to receive God’s provision.

If we work on these 3 keys, we will see God become Jehovah Jireh to us.

Meditation point: I am well equipped in Christ to receive everything I need from my heavenly Father.

NKJV
