DIVINE PROVISION

Hebrews 10:19-23

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23

He had decided to buy the new car regardless of his financial state. He also tried to “forget” that his wife had just had a baby. He refused to consider a nice, affordable used car.

God is committed to meeting your needs. However, He is not committed to meeting all your wants. Several things work against God’s desire to meet your needs:

Disobedience. When you disobey God, you face the consequences of your sin. Often that means waiting for the things He wants to build into your life.

Doubt. It defuses God’s plan for you. It also signals a lack of faith in His ability to provide for you.

Manipulation. Trying to meet your needs your way leads to SPIRITUAL FRAUD. God sees through manipulation. He wants your life to be sincerely obedient before Him.

Wrong motivation. Motives that are not God—centered never yield lasting peace. Set your focus on God, not the things of this world (Read ‘The Prosperity Gospel Lie‘).

Ignoring responsibilities. When you ignore your God-given responsibilities such as family, friends, and job, your fellowship with God becomes clouded, and you struggle spiritually.

Let Christ be your Divine Provider, and He will meet your needs perfectly.

Dear Lord, free me from disobedience, doubt, manipulation, wrong motivation, and ignoring my responsibilities.
