The other day I was watching Enjoying Everyday Life with Joyce Meyer on television. She looked right into the Camera and said, “Listen to me. I want you to hear this. Pay attention. God will always take care of you.” I think that God meant for me to hear that. That was directly for me. I had been struggling with thoughts of lack because of a couple of financial setbacks I hadn’t expected. But through Joyce, God was saying, “I WILL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOU.”
God Is Committed to Your Care
In Romans 8:32, Paul writes, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” That tells me that if He would give up His Son to redeem you and me, allow Him to go through such an agonizing death just for Him to be able to satisfy His holiness requirements so He can be in relationship with us, why would we ever think He would hold back anything from us? The earth is His and the everything in it, right (Psalm 24:1)? If He loves us that much, then why would He not be fully committed to our care? Why would he go to such lengths to draw us to Himself, only to let us starve and be outdoors in the end? Forget about it. It’s not gonna happen.
God Wants Us to Have Good Things
We also need to realize that God wants to give us good things. Psalm 84:11 says, “No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.” Therefore, if we are doing what we are supposed to do, obeying Him and walking in love, and putting the Kingdom first in our giving, He will make sure that we have whatever we need. I think it’s safe to classify food, clothing, and shelter as “good things.” In Matthew 6, Jesus said if we seek His Kingdom first, all these things will automatically be given to us. We will attract the “good things” that we need (and sometimes things we want) like a magnet, if we will simply prioritize God’s agenda.
Therefore, let faith rise up in you right now. Seek His Kingdom first and foremost. Whatever it is you are in need of, ask God, and know that He will not let you down. He loves you, and you don’t have to worry if He will meet your need anymore. Let it be settled in your heart today. Know that He is faithful, and Jehovah Jireh will provide for His own. He will come through for YOU, HALLELUJAH!
