Matthew 6:26-"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?".
Has anyone felt like when you are looking for answers and then suddenly God speaks to you in ways you least expect. I had that encounter on Last Friday. It was awesome. This week I have been feeling alot related to providence and provision in my heart. I feel God has been talking to me regarding that. I love the way He communicates.
On Friday, as I sat down for my quiet time with the Lord. I saw a sparrow few steps away from me. The moment I saw it, I felt something highlighted to me in Matthew 6. Matthew 6:26-"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?".
I felt from this verse 2 words highlighted.1. Providence2. Provision
Providence according to google means " The protective care of God or of nature as spiritual power or timely preparation for future eventualities."God knows our future and there's nothing hidden from Him. He knows what we need in the future and prepares everything for us. He cares so much for us and guides us through.
Provision means " the action of providing or supplying something for use."He's not only a God of providence but also provison. He doesn't just sit there knowing your needs, prepares and just stock them up. When we ask Him, He provides. He takes care of the tiny birds and other creatures, wont He take care of us? He will just pour on us more than we can think of. He's an amazing Father. I am in awe of His amazing power and how much He's willing to do for us when we ask Him. I just cant explain, it has no boundaries.
Dear Abba Father in heaven,
Thank You for Your Love which has no boundaries. In that Love, we live with so much assurance that we are taken care by You. You guide us and protect us as a Father. We are honoured to have You as our Father. Lord, You know our needs and sometimes it feels its just out of our reach. We pray that You would meet our needs according to thy will. Give it to the You. Take control. In Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you
