Thanks for stopping by today. I don’t mean to be a drag but there’s a lot going on in our world today that can cause us to fear–not to mention what’s going on in our private lives. My dad has a saying. It’s simple and to the point. “Life’s tough.” Ain’t it the truth!
During hard times, believer’s should look to God for His provision. That sounds good, but why is it so hard to do when the pressure is on? Well, if you’re like me it’s because I sometimes doubt God. Even though we have this promise… “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19). I still doubt.
While it’s true that God never promised to make us happy, healthy middle class citizens, He did promise to meet our needs. I’m learning that God is my portion. If I need food, He supplies some. If I need comfort, He consoles me. If I need a job, eventually I find work.
The problem is God wants to bless you and me but we forfeit His blessings by failing to ask. That reminds me. My mother has a saying, too. “You have not because you ask not.” I use to shrug that off, but now I’m beginning to believe there’s a lot of truth in her statement.
What is it that you need today? Is it healing? Is it peace? Is it a home? Is it respect? Is it hope? Don’t let your doubts keep you from God’s blessing. Talk to Him about your needs, and then, let Him be your portion.
