How To Receive The Provision Of God When You Don't See It
"We have a big gulf between the world
around us (with its needs) and the Kingdom of God with all of our provision in
it. We have one foot in both worlds, and wonder how we can access that
provision when we need it.
We are physically living in these bodies, and standing on earth, but we who are saved are also living in an invisible kingdom of God. We have our feet in both places, and we have to learn how to see with spiritual eyes what God has provided for us.
He PROMISED food, protection and health, so if we ask where are these things, we have to know they are SOMEWHERE. They ARE!! They are actually surrounding us, already provided, but we are not able to see them yet with the physical eyes. We have to do what Jesus said to do and go into a "state of emotional rest" to stand on the promises He gave us. Then the things we need will come to life into this physical world.
Sometimes they appear like magic in front of us. This has happened to one of my sisters. Food appeared all over the ground. Pears appeared on the ground when she was hungry, and there were no pear trees anywhere nearby and she was in a locked gated business where no one came in and placed them there. God put them there just for her.
Sometimes people bring us the things we need, in the form of money or supplies, or help.
Sometimes God changes the circumstances so that the needed amounts or dates of bills that are due are put off until the money will be there. My sister who had the pears appear also had some of her bills disappear. When she went to make a payment, the company said it had been paid out and didn't exist anymore.
Jesus said to ask in His name and to believe He would do it. He taught us how to pray - to honor the Father first - "Hallowed be thy name". Then to pray for what God wills in our lives before we ask for what we want. "Thy kingdom come (into our awareness and reality on earth), thy will be done (above our own wills). Give us this day our daily bread (supply our needs Lord), and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us." (We don't hold anything against our brothers, and seek to make right what we've done wrong.)
Jesus said if we seek God and His righteousness first, God will supply all these other things we have need of. He said God KNOWS what we need, these are common needs to all men. We are all born and die, we have to have houses and clothing and food. He knows these things. He promised them.
So what is God's righteousness? We could think of it as the right standing we have before Him because of Jesus' work on the cross. Because He went to the cross and took our punishment, He gave us HIS righteousness and right standing with God.
We could think of it as studying His word and taking on HIS thoughts and agreeing with what He says is right or wrong.
I think it is also looking at Jesus and learning to SEE Him with our spiritual eyes, to love and adore Him. The more you see and know Him, and what He did for us, the more you just naturally love Him. And when you are doing that, (thinking about Jesus) then your worldly problems fade away and your heart can relax and rest in the sure knowledge that God is going to take care of EVERY need!
He said "cast your burdens upon Jesus because He cares for you."
So to be able to walk in power and confidence in God's provision, we have to keep the firm determination that we will NOT focus our eyes on the NEEDS we have, or the problems or the threats, but we WILL focus our eyes on the SOLUTION to those problems, which is JESUS.
He has the power. He promised to give us what we ask in His name, - all we have to do is believe it.
When the threats from the enemy come, when the bills are due, when you are out of food, speak out loud the words of God's promises to us that cover those situations and tell the enemy to "get behind me Satan! IT IS WRITTEN: God supplies all of my needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus."
Say "God I know you love me, I am your child and Jesus paid a very high price to bring me home to your love and provision. I know you have promised to supply all of my needs, and to care for those I love, even to saving my children and grandchildren. I care for you and I put my faith and trust in your ability to provide for me. I declare and claim right now that I am whole and complete, nothing is lacking in my life and nothing is broken or sick. I declare and claim right now that you are supplying us with food and all of our needs are being met right now, because you are a loving and kind God who delights in the happiness of your people.
I am grateful to you my Lord and God, for providing these things that we need! I celebrate you, and I rest in the certainty that I am blessed and all that concerns me will be perfected! In Jesus' precious name I ask for this help and I believe I receive it when I pray! Thank you Lord Jesus! Amen!"
Our job isn’t to worry or try to figure out HOW something will be done for us. It is to come to “Daddy” God with our problems, lay it all out before Him and tell Him you are confident in His ability and desire to help you. Then spend your time praising Him and thanking Him! Really get into the joy of praise and making up songs to the Lord. Whatever your talent is, do that for Him! Make Him a picture, if you’re an artist. Or build Him something. Whatever it is you do, do it with joy unto the Lord. Do it for others around you who can’t pay you back! Cook a meal and send it to someone’s house. Bake a cake and give it to someone who has none in Jesus’ name!
If the threat is bad or there is danger, or if someone is mocking you or your Lord, use King Hezekiah’s prayer (2 Kings 19)
15 And Hezekiah prayed: O Lord, the God of Israel, Who [in symbol] is enthroned above the cherubim [of the ark in the temple], You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made the heavens and the earth.
16 Lord, bow down Your ear and hear; Lord, open Your eyes and see; hear the words of Sennacherib which he has sent to mock, reproach, insult, and defy the living God.
19 Now therefore, O Lord our God, I beseech You, save us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know and understand that You, O Lord, are God alone.
God is good, His word says He will not suffer the righteous to be moved, but will mightily save! Thank you Jesus!
To God be the praise and glory! In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.
God bless you all.
