Trust God to provide

‘Will he not also…graciously give us all things?’

The Bible says, ‘He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?’ One author gives this analogy:

‘Suppose a man comes upon a child being beaten by thugs. He dashes into the mob, rescues the boy, and carries him to a hospital. The youngster is nursed to health. The man pays for the child’s treatment. He learns that the child is an orphan and adopts him as his own and gives the boy his name. Then one night, months later, the father hears the son sobbing into his pillow. He goes to him and asks about the tears. “I’m worried, Daddy…about tomorrow. Where will I get food to eat? How am I going to buy clothes to stay warm? And where will I sleep?”

'The father is rightfully troubled. “Haven’t I shown you? Don’t you understand? I risked my life to save you. I gave my money to treat you. You wear my name. I’ve called you my son. Would I do all that and then not meet your needs?” Honestly, now. Did God save you so you would fret? Would He teach you to walk just to watch you fall? Would He be nailed to the cross for your sins and then disregard your prayers? Come on! Is Scripture teasing us when it says, “He has put his angels in charge of you to watch over you wherever you go” (Psalm 91:11 NCV)?’

God’s Word is true and trustworthy. So let’s close the door on doubts and worries, and believe that He’ll ‘graciously give us all things’.

 

What Now?

Have a look in the Bible for times when God provided exactly what someone needed. Thank Him for His provision and perfect timing.
