The Blessing of God’s Provision


Matthew 6:12Give us this day our daily bread

Exodus 16:15And when the Children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat

Deuteronomy 29:5And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.

Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her Firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.  


How many times do we grab a snack or take a warm shower, without a second thought.  Certainly we appreciate it, but do we acknowledge that our Lord is supplying our needs, from the most basic matters of life, to the most substantial, like our health and lodging?

When we open our cupboard (if we’ve recently been shopping), do we not expect to find what we want?  What about the shower, isn’t it just pretty much taken for granted that warm water will flow from the faucet? In our closet there are a number of shirts, pants and shoes to select. 

Our Lord, our Creator, provides for us in abundance!  The times we seem to notice are when things we once had are not working, there’s no access or for whatever reason, not available. At that point, what do we want to do? Pray for the Lord’s Mercy, and for Him to restore what we find lacking?  Have we prayed to thank Him when we had whatever it was?

Let’s turn our hearts to be aware of God’s blessing and great provision for our “daily bread”.  I pray to God, none of us know homelessness or hunger, but if that ever comes to pass, know that our Loving Father is there to  provide for His children.


ALMIGHTY GOD

Thank you for this day

Please forgive our sins against You, others  and ourselves

Thank You for the many provisions

We recognize You as our Mighty Provider

We appreciate every one of our blessings

Please draw our attention to those we overlook or do not recognize

You showed us that even Your  Own Son was provided a bed

Although there were more comfortable surroundings

You certainly could have lavished Him with every earthly comfort

You showed us, Father, that You ARE SUFFICIENT to meet all needs.

In the Name of Jesus

AMEN

About voicevessel bwc

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
