Provisions from God for us today.
A. Provision of Eternal Life
1. God truly makes provisions for those who follow Him – the greatest provision He has
made for us is a plan to gain eternal life through the blood of His Son
13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. John 15:13
B. Provisions through Prayer
1. God has a way for us to communicate to Him, through our prayers we lay our fears,
needs, concerns and every other issue we may have at the feet of the Almighty. Through
answering our prayers God grants us provisions as according to His will. – Job makes
mention of how God cared for him especially during his trials
12 You have granted me life and favor, And Your care has preserved my spirit. Job 10:12
12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person.” So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord. Job 1:12
6 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand, but spare his life.” Job 2:6
C. Provisions through the Church & God’s Word
1. Through the Church & God’s Word we grow spiritually and emotionally.
2. Trials that could cripple a worldly person ought to be more easily handled by a
servant of God because of the blessings/provisions given to them by God and
through God’s Word (1 Cor 10:13).
13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
1. God has provided us with many provisions in this life!
2. When’s the last time you considered what God has provided for you and thanked Him
for those provisions?
