God’s Already Provided

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- July 16, 2012

“He [Jesus] replied, “You give them something to eat.” They answered, “We have only five loaves of bread and two fish—unless we go and buy food for all this crowd.” Luke 9:13

God is not passive in His provision. He aggressively applies His resources directly to the felt need of His children. But His works are outside the small box of unbelief. The Lord’s faithfulness flourishes where the soul fluently speaks the language of faith. The Holy Spirit traffics freely on the highway of a trusting heart. Man’s natural eye limits the Lord’s supernatural supply, but an eternal gaze engages His possibilities.

Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where it seems like we lack the Lord’s provision. The resources right in front us look like they are limited, without suitable capacity. Can Christ be creative with what He has already given us? Yes, of course, if we are obedient to follow His directives. Faith says yes to God’s “what”, even when His “how” is unclear. Many times God has already provided for His children. The provision may seem disguised in its unconventional appearance, but nonetheless it is still very near.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:18

Like an explorer on the verge of discovering a valuable treasure, so you may be one step of obedience away from discovering Christ’s treasure trove of blessings. What are you facing that requires Jesus to provide? Is it wisdom? He is wisdom. Is it peace? He is the Prince of Peace. Is it comfort? He weeps with compassion. Is it direction? He is the Bright and Morning Star. Is it forgiveness? He forgives. His provision precedes the need.

The possibilities of God’s provision begin to be defined by numbering the grains of sand in the sea. Jesus is asking you to take the step of faith where you are, so He can take you to where you need to be. Christ wants to change you, before He changes your circumstances. He is building your trust to make you trustworthy with His blessings. Like mighty vessels that only cross deep channels of water, so you are the Lord’s valued vessel to deliver His unfathomable blessings to others. Perhaps His provision is you!

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I trust you to provide in Your timing, show me the next step.

    I am 29 weeks pregnant, and my water broke at 14 weeks. This experience have taught me to depend completely in God’s provision for me and for our developing baby girl.
    I put all my trust in God, but accomplishing his will is my fountain of joy on this storm. I trust in His wisdom and in His plan for me.

    I’m the manager of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to grow my wholesale side of company. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain share some guidance ! I considered that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anyone could recommend a qualified site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Sales Leads I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the very best choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
