Wednesday Worship: He Will Supply

In these recessionary times, it may seem as though the things we need and want are unavailable to us, that the supply has dried up for now.

Not so!

God's supply is infinite and eternal. And we know that He has--and is willing to supply--all that we can ever think or need.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. -- Matt 7:7-8
Fear not but believe and rest on the truth of His Word. He will supply!



Peace & Blessings,
Patricia

I hate to leave a heavy comment. but I really this this "famine" time is because we have been putting faith in our education and financial ability and not our God. Like Obama for me represents everything I USED to put my faith in, my "gree" my ability and my job. When God took it all away, I was like 'God what do I do now' My folks aren't fazed cuz they never put their "faith" in those things...cuz they didn't always have it. I think we need to use this time as an opportunity to focus on what foundation we are building on. Thnks

And good to meet you too, Patti.

Allison, I agree that man has put its faith in things outside of God, like education, status, etc. I disagree that Obama "represents" these things. See, there's nothing wrong with having a great education and using it to support one's family, do good in the community, or even achieve one's dreams.

The problem comes in when you believe that those things happen because of you--your education, who you know, what you do--and not because God is using the things He has gifted you with to fulfill your purpose in Him.

I wouldn't say Obama is guilty of the latter--I'm in no position to judge his heart--but way too many people appear to be. That's why it seems so many who achieve so much endure such great falls, such great scandals, in my opinion. The eye of their faith has moved off target.
