If you have been waiting on the Lord for provision, know that God’s heart is for you to be abundantly supplied. The greatest proof of this is that God has already given you His very best, Jesus Christ. And when you have the Lord, you have everything that you need (1 Corinthians 1:30, 2 Peter 1:3).
What is it that you need today? Healing for yourself or a loved one? Favor at work or with your spouse? Wisdom to make important decisions about your career, children or who to marry? God assures you that He knows that “you need all these things” (Matthew 6:31–31) and that He has already provided for them.
How? Through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross! At the cross, Jesus though He was rich became poor so that you through His poverty might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). He carried all your sicknesses and pains on His own body (see Isaiah 53:5) so that yours may be whole, healthy and strong. He wore the crown of thorn (John 19:2) so that your mind may be free from torment. He died alone (Psalm 88:18) so that you may always be surrounded by loved ones and friends.
Jesus has done it all and provided it all for you. There is nothing you need to do to qualify for or deserve God’s blessings and provision. Jesus declared in John 10:10 that He came to that you may have life, and that you may have it more abundantly. So beloved, go boldly to your heavenly Father today and ask His “mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).
As you wait on the Lord for your breakthrough, continue to focus on your heavenly Father’s goodness and His willingness and ability to provide what you need. What follows is a collection of God’s promises for provision, some already well-known and well-loved, that will help keep you enveloped in a cloud of your Father’s love and grace.
Prayer For God’s Provision
“Lord Jesus, I thank You that You love me unconditionally and that You are both willing and more than able to provide for me. At the cross, You were made poor so that by Your poverty, I can be abundantly supplied today! You are my Provider, Your favor surrounds me as with a shield and You open wide doors of good opportunity for me. I do not have to struggle or despair. As I wait on You for Your supply in my life, I choose to focus on and give praise for Your great love for me. Amen!”
