The Sauce: Seek First
DAY 12 OF 21
God's Stewardship & Provision
God operates out of abundance! At times, it is easy to fall into fear or worry about the resources and provisions we need in our lives. We all have dreams or desires and very real needs that we believe God to provide for. We have to fight against the temptation to see the world through a lens of scarcity and instead lean into the promises of God. God is our provider; He is all-powerful and generous! The Bible says that God will provide for all of our needs and He has unlimited resources; in fact, He is THE source. As we have learned, the bible says in Matthew 6:33, “to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” In the verses leading up to Matthew 6:33, Jesus teaches His disciples not to worry or be anxious about food, clothing, or the resources we consider basic needs. He teaches us when we fix our eyes on God and His Kingdom, He will provide for us. God loves you, cares for you, and has plans for your future. Ask God to help you to discern between your "needs" and "wants." Trust that God's timing is perfect, and rest easy that there is nothing too big or too small for God. By divorcing the lack mindset, we remove the cap we have placed on God. Maybe the cap limits how or when we think God can move and provide in our lives. Today, we chose to press into knowing and trusting in God's abundance. We ask Him to change our circumstances, provide for us, and help us, in turn, be a reflection of his generosity toward us and steward well over what we are given.
- In what ways have you capped God in your life?
- How can you combat lies that you have believed regarding God’s stewardship and provision over your life?
- What is God speaking to you about His stewardship and provision?
Lord, I pray that you will help me understand your abundance and provision for my life as I read your Word. I pray that you will reveal to me the promises you have for my life. I pray that as I wait for your perfect timing for my needs and desires, I will grow in my relationship with you. Forgive me for putting a cap on what you could do in my life. I trust that you are my provider, you are all-powerful, and you are a generous Father. You are worthy of all the glory and honor in my life! Thank you for your stewardship and provision. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
