May 5, 2018 GOD PROVIDES
God provides. He does. But we don’t just give Him a list of what we want and expect to get it. We need to take action for Him. We need to take action in faith. We should be sure we are tithing, taking care of our bodies, serving and encouraging others, giving to the poor, making the best use of our money, praying and reading His word. When our focus is on obeying God and living for Him, He will give us the answers we need to our problems. We need to take the focus off the problem and put our focus on God.
Philippians 4:6 “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” (NLT)
1. Write down what issues you are dealing with.
2. List the things you are doing according to God’s will.
3. Know God will provide to those who are living for Him.
4. Seek what you need to do more of in obedience to God and do it.
Dear Lord, we pray You will help us to know You love us. Remind us You will provide for us when we are in need. Remind us, however, we should live to do what is right and good according to Your will. We know You love us when we mess up and we know You will help us. Help us not to worry or doubt but to put our trust in You while we are living to obey You and seek Your will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
When we take time for God, He will provide us with what we need.
When we are generous to others, God will take care of us.
If we are looking for an answer from God, we need to be sure we are living in obedience to Him.
God answers us when we seek Him, do His will and have a grateful heart.
God loves a cheerful giver and blesses those who choose to live to serve others.
Romans 12:12 “Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” (NLT)
