    For there is no distinction, for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. Romans 3:22 WEBIt is so easy for us to become used to having positions, titles, and levels in the workplace during our life and th...

    Walking on Water from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about the importance of believing the Lord, of shaking off the naysayers and continuing on your own journey.

    Out of that terrible travail of soul, he'll see that it's worth it and be glad he did it. Through what he experienced, my righteous one, my servant, will make many 'righteous ones,' as he himself carries the burden of their sins. Therefore I'll reward him extravagantly' the best of everything, the ...

Super Natural Provision

  • Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They dont toil, neither do they spin, yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, wont he much more clothe you, you of little faith? Therefore dont be anxious, saying, What will we eat?, What will we drink? or, With what will we be clothed? Matthew 6:28 31 WEB

    I grew up in the country and often rambled through the woods, looking for adventure. There was an oak tree that covered a stream near our house that became my summer camp one year. It had all of our names carved in it, as well as many that had been there before us. When I was small, it was already a large tree. That tree is now over a hundred years old and over the years, it has continued to grow and it is now majestic. I loved that tree and the cool shade that it provided me.

    Trees are amazing. Their roots grow down into the soil and draw up water and minerals that are unseen to us. Their sustenance is invisible to us and provided so naturally that we dont even notice, in fact, it is "super natural" provision. It just happens, naturally.

    God provides everything that they need to grow and before we were born, trees were already there and doing well. They live their whole life unable to walk or to provide anything for themselves. If they needed anything, they could not move a single step to get it. Yet God provides for their every need, right where they are.

    God will provide for you the same way. No one can cut you off because they cannot control where your supply is coming from. The check that you receive is not your only means of survival. God provides for all of creation and He will provide for you.

    Do not look at the signer of a check as your savior. When it fails, God can raise up another source to provide for your needs. Relax, He provides for mighty forests and He is certainly able to provide for you. Pray, make your needs known, and then trust God for provision (Phil 4:6). Dont be anxious about what may come.

    Prayer: Father, I thank You for taking care of me. It has been quite a journey, but I am still here. Today I put my trust in You. I choose You as my provider. Philippians 4:6 tells us to make our requests known to You even though you know them already, so here are my needs. (List your needs). Thank You so much, in the name of Jesus I pray.

Leslie McLea
Leslie McLea My name  is all over this this morning. Sometimes when u are drowning under that tree you loose site of the sky and that one who holds the sun in the atmosphere. I have brought my needs before the Lord so many times, I know he knows what I need before I ask, and at this point, I just cant ask any more. I do not even feel like talking, which in itself is unusual for me. I have all I can do to breath most day. Yet I seek HIM out every chance I can. I take my breaks at work and step out side and drink in the birds that are singing, and the wildlife that roams through the parking lot, I watch the white fluffy clouds roll by and reflect on if the Lord can see me as I stand there with tear filled eyes. I am not one to give up easily, but I am close and it is a scary place to be. Thank you for your encouraging words they greatly help me through my day.

Kathy Banfield Yes, God is ALWAYS with us, and although I knew this in theory, it wasn't until very recently that I really believed this verse.Worrying about something is a waste of time and causes nothing but headaches! But like all Biblical realities, it took a LONG time for this to sink in with me!

Tina G Love this post! A very dear friend of mine has helped me see that there are "needs" and "wants" Turns out a lot of what I thought I needed were wants that I can live without. And when it comes down to it my needs are pretty much met. Thanks be to God and people in my life, including you all!

Sylvia Todd Dion and I were pondering on God's provision this week as we had just completed a long series of payments that has taken twelve years to complete. Even though for many of those months the payment date would loom at us like an oncoming truck, we somehow never missed a payment. His provision is amazing!

Michael Griffin Good morning!! Thank you again, Pastor for your uplifting devotion. What does it take for us to finally realize that we need Him to supply our needs? He hasn't let us down before, why would He stop now? We do, however, have to remember that it happens in His time, not ours! Be patient, wait on the Lord!! Have a blessed day everyone. TGIF (Today God Is First)!!
