BLOG 44 THE WORD IS OUR PROVIDER

BLOG 44 THE WORD IS OUR PROVIDER

The word of God provides everything that we need for life and godliness. 2 Peter 1:3 It comes through the knowledge of God. The only way to really know Him is through His word. Our provision comes about as we grow and learn the scriptures. God has already provided for us through the Lord Jesus Christ, but if you don’t know this you will not have the things you need. It is like having a million dollars in the bank and not knowing it. You could die of starvation, or be living under a bridge!
Everything that pertains to life and godliness has been put in our spirits by the Spirit of God. 2Peter 1:3 Also every spiritual blessing. See Ephesians 1:3. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Our spirits are the bag that we carry all these gifts in. This is where our treasure is located. We are able to draw out what is needed. We draw these gifts out by faith. Everything with God is done by faith. Faith is the only way to receive because our Father has already provided everything in Christ. He has done a complete work. All that we have to do is to receive it and appropriate it. Appropriating comes by speaking the Word of God to things and situations. They have to listen and to obey! Jesus is the Word of God. John 1:1 When we speak in His name, it is above all names. The Bible says all knees shall bow at His name. Everything that has a name has to listen to you when you speak in His name.
Do you really know how blessed you are to have the priviledge to speak God’s word to things and situations. The people in the world who do not belong to God through Christ can not do this. All they have to depend on is worldly knowledge. Their knowledge is very limited compared to our’s. Wisdom comes from the word of God. All our needs are supplied through God’s word.
His word is truth. You must know the truth to be set free of ignorance. The world says, “What you don’t know won’t hurt you.” This is a lie from satan. All he has are lies and counterfeits! “Jesus is the way, the truth,and the life.” John 14:6 God has provided everything that is needed by us in Christ.
Most believe that Jesus only died for our sins, but that is not so. He came that we might have life and life more abundantly. John 10:10 Before this, it says the thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. Satan steals the Word from you if you do not believe and live by it. He knows the power rests in the Word of God. He was overcome by Jesus, the Word of God. God upholds everything by the Word of His power. Hebrews 1:3 Jesus is the Word of His power! Satan is happy when God’s people do not know the Word, their provider. He loves it when they are “poor as church mice.” Without money, there is no means to prosper the gospel. Money is the medium of exchange. In this world, it is essential. God tells us not to love money because it is the root of all evil. 1Timothy 6:10 We can not love God and mammoth both(loyality is divided). In 1Timothy 6:17,18,19, “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.” “That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that may lay hold on eternal life.”
God’s heart is people, and if we are to reach people, we need resources. We are to have money, but He doesn’t want money to control us. Worldly people love money because it brings them power and control. Evil can be traced back everytime to the love of money. Many times, God’s people are over thrown by the love of money, also. You must know that if you do belong to God, everything we have belongs to Him. When we are faithful and trustworthy with money and everything He has blessed us with, He can use us to reach others.
In Mark 4, the parable of the sower, is speaking about sowing the word of God in your heart. The word is the seed that is sown into the ground of your heart. God compares His word to a seed. He uses simple examples so we can understand what He is saying in order to give us what we need. We can have eyes to see and ears to hear what Holy Spirit is saying to us if we meditate in the word of God. The blindness can come off, if you humble yourself and listen to Him.
We have learned that God is our provider, not money. Money is a tool to be used to accomplish God’s will in the earth. We pray His kingdom come, His will be done in earth as it is in heaven. This is the reason money is needed. God is our “Source” for all things and they were provided by the Word of God. In the book of Revelation (the last book in the Bible) we read that Jesus’ name is the “Word of God.” God provides all our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
You have to be in Christ (clothed with) to have all your needs met. Mankind is independent of our Heavenly Father and tries to supply all his needs by the sweat of his brow. Climbing the worldly ladder to success is his goal. We as God’s children, have all our needs met by the Lord Jesus Christ. Our goal is to go into all the world and preach the gospel, the good news, and to make disciples of all nations. This is our job as a follower of Christ Jesus.
Let me introduce you to the most important person in all the universe. Jesus is His name, the Word of God, and He came to earth to save all men. He humbled Himself to come to earth, He put on flesh and He died on a cross at Calvary to provide for all, “eternal salvation.” The Word of God is our provider!
This is faith cabin saying, “you are blessed.” Love and smiles ’til next time.
