LGD 006: Generous Provision

As you awoke this morning, your thoughts may have drifted to your to-do list or wondering how you might spend the hours in the day.

In Luke 11, the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. In verse three, Jesus says, “give us this day our daily bread.”

Not only do we ask for His provision of our physical needs, but also our spiritual, emotional, and mental ones as well.

Today, as we live through a global pandemic, we can wonder whether our daily provisions will be met. Paychecks are slow or non-existent. The promised stimulus checks are still being cut, but the one thing you can count on is God’s provision for you.

Read what it says in 2 Corinthians 9:8,

“And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.”

2 Corinthians 9:8

God will not leave you out to dry. He will not walk away from you. He may stretch you, but He will not forsake you.

Today, as you reflect on God’s provision, ask Him how you can provide for someone else today. That could be a text, a phone call, writing a card or whatever God brings to mind.

You are blessed. He provides for you. Give generously to others as He has given to you.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the day which you have given to me. Thank you for the air in my lungs, and the blessing of the day. I ask that you would help to see the provision that is around me. Show me how I can give to someone else today, and give me the courage to act upon your leading. Thank you for your love and care for me. Amen
