THE PROVISION OF THE CROSS

Lamentations 3:22-26

Praise the Lord! Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 106:1

A scene from a children’s musical depicts a group of angels discussing the believers on earth. One angel turns and asks the others, “Do they know how much the Father loves them? Do they realize how much He cares?”

God promises to eternally provide for you, yet there is one condition He places before you: obedience. Every need of Adam was attended to, yet he disobeyed God. All that Israel could ever dream of obtaining was theirs, yet they abandoned the ways of God, and disobedience ruled their hearts.

Throughout history, a discomforting glitch has remained in the heart of mankind. We have continued to seek the pleasures of other gods while pushing away what God offers so freely: His love and devotion. We have ignored the reality that we are His redeemed, purchased at Calvary’s Cross.

The guarantee He offers us is the same one He gave to Abraham, Isaac, David, Mary, and the disciples: “Come unto Me. Drink My living water and find refreshment for your souls.”

Trace His provision through the Bible. Start with Genesis and follow it through to Revelation. He will provide all that you need if you will place your trust in Him.

Father, thank You for the living water that brings refreshment for my soul. You will provide all I need. I place my trust in You.
