Are We Worshipping the Provision or Provider?

“I am the Bread of Life; he that comes to me shall never hunger and he that believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)

“Lord, I really need to start hitting!” “I need for my bills to be paid.” “Lord, I'm sick. Please heal me.” “Lord, I need this and that and those...”

We ask God for provision. Nothing wrong with that actually. Even Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread. And in Luke 12:24, we are reminded that we are more valuable than the ravens, and God takes care of them. I think it is fairly safe to say that we can be praying for provision in our life. However, I do believe we need to make sure our focus is correct.

1)  God is Provider. - Philippians 4:19 reminds us “God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.” You may have worked hard for something that’s true. But God has been there all along to meet your needs. Give Him praise!

2)  Seek God first. – Mat 6:33 “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.” Its all about Him. Seeking Him first before you ask. Remembering Him when He provides. Everything you have goes back to being all about Him.

3)  Remember our provision on this earth is temporary and He gives to us things so we will never be hungry and never be thirsty (our verse today). - Many times we find ourselves in a position where we ask God for something and get it, only to focus on the provision and not the Provider. God gives us Himself! He is the ultimate provision. In our daily routine we need to be remembering and rejoicing about the abundant blessing He is and not just the provisions He provides.

Question: Is your focus on the provision or the Provider?

Challenge: Good time to do an evaluation of your heart!

Prayer: Thank you Father for being my provision. Thank you for being my Provider as you touch me spiritually, emotionally, physically, financially, and socially. May I every praise and glorify your Name. Amen.
