The Who of Provision: A pondering by Holly Woodbridge
When Adam and Eve walked in the garden, God provided every meal.
When Israel faced a turbulent Red Sea, God provided a dry path.
When the widow had one last meal, God provided unending oil and flour
When we were dying in sin, lost and alone, God provided a Savior
There is NO time, no event, no experience, when that God does not provide.
My stroke and the recovery following can seem so long, frustrating, and even scary at times, but as I walk through those moments, again and again I am reminded:
When I am weak, He is strong,
When I fear, He assures,
When bills run high, His generosity abounds,
When I doubt, He gives hope,
When I stumble, He holds,
Even in death God provides eternal life. There is NOTHING that He cannot provide for. For if we look closer at all of these, HE is the provision.
And HE is always enough.
11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
the LORD bestows favor and honor.
No good thing does he withhold
from those who walk uprightly.
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.
