This morning Pastor Gaby encourages us with a message on ‘God’s Supernatural Provision’ under the sermon series ‘Living Under An Open Heaven’.
In a time and a season where there is dryness all around us and supermarkets shelves are getting empty, there is a lot of fear. But Philippians 4:19 assures us that God will supply all our needs according to his glorious riches by Christ Jesus.
Whenever Scripture talks about signs, wonders and miracles, we often only think about healing and deliverance but not about God’s supernatural provision. God’s supernatural provision is available to us his children. In John 6, we see how Jesus fed 5000 people with 5 loaves and 2 fish. We read the account of Moses and the children of Israel, God fed them and provided so they never went hungry. The Scripture says that even their clothes and shoes never wore out, over forty years!
How much more will God provide for us who are in Christ? I want you to consider 3 principles as to how we can to experience God’s provision:
1. Faith – we must have faith in God’s ability to provide for us. Without faith it is impossible to please to God, and He is the Rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. So if we have faith in God to provide, He rewards us with His provision.
2. Obedience – every miracle in Scripture, required a step of obedience. Peter obeyed Jesus when the cast his net after fishing all night, the disciples obeyed Jesus at the wedding in Cana and throughout the Bible we see examples of obedience to God that brought about supernatural provision.
3. God knows our needs – Matthew 6:8 tells us that God know what we need before we ask. If God takes care of the birds of the air and the lilies of the field, how much more us? We are of greater value to Him.
Let us be encouraged to know that our Father is Jehovah Jireh, our God who provides!
