God Is Our Provision
We must never forget that God is the source of our provisions. God alone, gives the power to get wealth.
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, ‘Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest… You shall eat neither bread nor parched grain nor fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your God; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.’Leviticus 23:9-10, 14
Four hundred years before this, God delivered the family of Jacob from famine through his son, Joseph. God promised Abraham, Jacob’s grandfather, that he would become a mighty nation. So Jacob’s descendants multiplied and became the nation of Israel. Now they were slaves in Egypt, where they would serve in bondage to Pharoah for four hundred years. Then God sent them a deliverer named Moses.
Since God sent Moses to deliver them, He was preparing them to trust Him for all of their provision. As slaves, Israel had trusted Pharoah for everything. Now God was establishing celebrations and offerings to remind them that He would be their provision. But because of their unbelief, they would have to wait for another forty years (Numbers 14).
Again Moses reminded the people, saying: “Beware that you do not forget the Lord your God… hen you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth’ ” (Deuteronomy 8:11-18).
God knows that we are slow to remember Him when things are going well in our lives. We forget that God is the source of our provision and He gives us the power to get wealth. Learn to trust God. So today, take a moment to thank God for His provision. Remember that it is God who gives you the power to acquire wealth.
Lord, I pray, that You will always remind me by Your Holy Spirit that You are the source of all good things that appear in my life. I pray that you will keep me in the place in the place of humility for as long as I may serve you, So, today, I take a moment to thank you, Father, for Your provision, in my life and the lives of my family members. Let it be done to me according to my faith, in Jesus’ name I pray. AMEN.
