I’d like to encourage you in the area of trusting God today. I don’t know about you, but I want to increase my trust in God as time goes by and live in His peace that surpasses all understanding. I especially want to be able to trust Him in the area of provision of everything I need. He has always been faithful and trustworthy, so I don’t even understand why I struggle with this issue sometimes. Do you ever struggle with trusting God? If so, that stronghold has got to be pulled down if you are to lay hold of the blessings that God has for you.
Our heavenly Father has promised to meet our every need. In Matthew 6:33, Jesus said, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Philippians 4:19 says, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” God is not a “deadbeat dad.” He is in covenant with his children. He has proven Himself time and time again in my life and in yours. He is fully trustworthy. Amen?
One day, I sat before the Lord with my journal and my heart open, waiting to get revelation from the Lord on this matter of trusting Him for provision. What I am about to share is an excerpt from my journal. I hope that it encourages you. This is what He relayed to me:
“When you base your future financial success only on what you can do, what you can see, and what you can fathom, and fail to include Me in the landscape of your thoughts, you will panic. You will fail. You will become overwhelmed. You will be stressed out. You will be fearful because without Me, you know that you are NOTHING and can do NOTHING. You have no control. You cannot provide for yourself. You cannot make it happen. If anything is going to happen, you have to work in partnership with Me. You have to enlist MY help. You have to trust Me to be true to My Word, or there is no hope in the matter. You must come to the conclusion that If you don’t trust Me to make the way, and if I don’t come through and keep My covenant with you (and that will never happen), you are doomed. There are no two ways about it. Trust Me to provide for you and give you the instructions that will lead you to the provision I have already laid up for you. That is the only way to get what you need. Stop fighting dependence upon Me. Trust ME. Expect Me to keep My Word. Expect provision to show up when needed. Enter into My supernatural rest by faith and receive the peace that Jesus, My Son, died to give you.”
Let that last sentence sink in. Jesus died to enable you to fully operate in His peace at all times. I pray that you, too, are serious about entering into the rest of God, especially in the area of provision. Our heavenly Father is Who He says He is. He can do what He says He can do. He is “Jehovah Jireh,” and He truly deserves our faith and trust.
