Super Natural Provision

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They don't 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, won't he much more clothe you, you of little faith? Therefore don't be anxious, saying, 'What will we eat?', 'What will we drink?' or, 'With what will we be clothed?' Matthew 6:28 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.

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 don't even notice, in fact, it is "super natural" provision. It happens naturally and gradually as they need it.

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. He puts what they need within their reach.

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 when you put your trust in Him.

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 as well as the little sparrows, and He is certainly able to provide for you. Pray, make your needs known, and then trust God for provision (Philippians 4:6), and don't be so anxious about what may come tomorrow.

Prayer: Heavenly 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 Christ I pray.
