THEME: GOD OUR PROVIDER
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
-God is our Father and He knows what we need before we ask Him. He calls us to have faith in Him and whatever we ask Him believing that we will get it; we will receive it. By worrying about what we eat, drink or wear we cannot change the circumstances but only display our unbelief.
Jehovah Jireh means God our Provider. Abraham obeyed God and journeyed to mount Moriah to sacrifice his son Isaac as instructed. He did not withhold the sword from the boy having waited for a long time before receiving his promise. The Lord provided a ram for sacrifice and He was pleased with Abrahams faith. Like Abraham the father of faith, we are called to have strong in the Lord despite the trying times that we are faced with. Like Hagar and his son Ishmael who were desperately in need of divine Providence, the Lord did not delay but heard Ishmael’s cry. Since we are Abraham’s seed according to the promise, let us believe in Jesus Christ and we will receive our blessings now and forever more. As God provides for us, we are also called to freely scatter our gifts to the poor and our righteousness will endure forever. As we give to the needy, we acknowledge that God is our only Provider and we share His love with our neighbors. By this we also become kingdom financiers and advance God’s kingdom, and He will richly blesses us. Since we are called to seeking first God’s kingdom and His righteousness, God satisfies all our needs according to the riches of His glory.
Thank You Jesus for Your love and kindness upon us. You have been good to us always, we praise Your holy name. You have protected us, sustained us, healed all our wounds and provided for all our needs, we praise You and glorify Your holy name. Forgive us our trespasses and cover us with Your precious blood merciful Father. Bless the work our hands dear Master and expand our territories. Revive our economy and water our land with the dew of heaven. Help us always rely on Your providence and become better stewards of the resources You give us. Grant us the grace to give to the poor and serve You with our gifts. Increase our faith and wisdom so that we may grow spiritually and obtain favor from You Father. Give us the grace to always remain in Your presence and may Your grace abound in us forever. Amen
