God Provides

Know this: my God will fill every need you have according to His glorious riches in Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King. (Philippians 4:19)

The last blog I wrote (Word Snatcher) was about watching a bird fly by with a twig in its beak; I supposed it was for a nest. The bird became fearful when it was confronted by an enemy (my cat Fe'), and in a panic let the provision drop to the ground. 

I related this to how our enemy, the devil, tries to steal God's Covenant Word of divine care from His children by frightening them about circumstances. 

Know this....circumstances do not change the ability of our God to provide for His children's needs.

Almost one year after watching that bird drop its provision I was sitting in the backyard of a friend.  It was springtime, and I watched as a male bird flew over to a small birdhouse with something in its mouth (perhaps it was a worm, or maybe it was a twig for a nest).

A female bird's head appeared from inside the birdhouse and took whatever it was from the male's mouth.  She then disappeared back inside the house to either eat the worm, or add the twig to the nest inside.

It was so beautiful to watch the female accept the provision from her mate without hesitation.  She simply trusted that what he had for her was good, then she opened her mouth and received it.

What a wonderful picture of how we are to trust our God (if Jesus is our Lord).  With childlike faith, we believe that our Heavenly Father knows what we need.  It doesn't matter if the provision is for healing, financial, or spiritual needs.....we can be absolutely sure that He will be faithful to get it to us at exactly the right time. 

We do not doubt His care for us......we simply open our hearts to receive the needed provision from Him.

The covenant of God's love for us is detailed in the Bible's new testament.  It is guaranteed by the signature of Jesus our God, using His blood as the ink.

So do not consume yourself with questions: What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?, What will we do?.....your Heavenly Father knows exactly what you need.....(Matthew 6:31-32, "What will we do?" is added by me).
