Thoughts on Provision

20140729-115656-43016787.jpg

We pray for His provision for this or that. And then when He provides, we feel as if we aren’t worthy of the provision, or we aren’t sure if we should accept it. Or, in my case, I accept it but then keep the tags on it for forever just in case I need to return it, or in case a better deal comes along within the return period. I almost always struggle with “buyers remorse” after making a large purchase.

And then there are times with personal provision prayers beng answered. I’m like, “Wait, no that’s not what I asked for, Lord! I asked for freedom from stress but I didn’t mean that I wanted THIS aspect of my life removed!” But what we may not see is that in order for our lives to be less stressful, The Lord needs to remove the stress giver, whatever it or who that may be. We have to be willing to let go of what WAS in order to receive what IS. The scripture, “Behold, I am doing a NEW thing!” comes to mind.

If we ask, we need to be ready to receive. Whether it be a financial need, or a personal need, even a fun vacation you’ve been wanting to take..whatever it may be. Be ready and willing to receive it. No guilt, worry, shame, or trepidation is needed or useful!

Even though it may not look like the type of provision you’ve had in mind, trust that the outcome will be just right. His plans for you far outweigh anything you could hope or dream for yourself.

Blessings,

Sarah
