Learning to See God’s Provision
When you put your faith in Christ, God commissions himself to protect, provide, and care for you (Philippians 4:19). God always provides for his children, though often it is not in the way we expect or hope.
The challenge is for us to see God’s provision and care for us, even when it is different than we expect. God’s ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9), but he graciously gives us insight into how He provides for us in His Word.
John Piper has said, “God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, but you may be aware of three of them.” Over and over again, Jesus’s disciples missed what he was doing right in front of them. They missed the point of the miracles. They missed the lessons. Which should give us hope if we lack clarity in our own lives.
Over the next several days, I want to share four encouragements about how God provides and cares for you.
