Supernatural Provision

We worry so much about money and financial provision. Although God has met every need that we had yesterday, the day before, last year, last week or last month. We still worry about how He is going to provide tomorrow.

Jesus taught us to consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: yet even King Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as well as they were (Matthew 6:28-29). He taught us not to be anxious about our lives what we will eat or drink or what clothes we will wear.
David said I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging for bread (Psalm 37:25). You will not have to beg for bread when you trust in God, serve him and place your confidence in him. God is able to provide supernaturally resources that goes beyond the scope of your income and possession. He fed the Israelites with food that fell from the sky and sent a bird to feed Elijah.

How did Jesus know that there was gold in the mouth of the fish? And what faith it must have taken for the disciple who was carrying out the act of catching the fish and retrieving the gold coin. Jesus used this illustration to show us that God has already provided ahead of time for whatever we need. And when we ask God, He will show us areas where He has laid for us supernatural provision. We have to trust God with our finances. So we give and rest assured that God will give to us.

One of the stories in the bible that stands out for me during Jesus’s ministry was when He sent a disciple to collect a gold coin from a fish to pay taxes. “But so that we may not cause offence, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours” (Matthew 17:27).

I have to stay in the word to maintain my own confidence in the Lord and to not lean on my own understanding. God is providing; God has already provided and God will continue to provide. Continue to trust and believe.
