God Provides for You

One of the weakest areas that comes across in Christians is not knowing God provides. Many Christians are, as such, beggars and not believers.

Asking Jesus

If Faith is the key to dealing with God, very few put the key in the lock and turn it. One of the great gifts we can give a person is not the substance he is begging for but the knowledge of where to find his Provider. That, he can use over and over again, and it will give power to his spiritual walk.

Heb 11:1 NKJV, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

And we are called to believe his provision and his intervention. Indeed, those who look to man instead of to God are showing disparaging faith indeed. Do not ask man at all, ask God.

Heb 11:6 NKJV, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

One key to faith is the use of giving. Give to receive. It defies all logic and proves the hand of God.

Lu 6:38 NKJV, "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you."

In walking with God through spiritual things, always stop and consult the Holy Spirit, he may instruct you to do this and not that. God's ways are not the ways of man. Always consult and obey him explicitly to see the miracles of a gracious God.

Ac 5:32 NKJV, "And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him."
