Jesus Is Our Provider.

 “If God sends us on stony paths, He provides strong shoes.” – Corrie Ten Boom (*quote, not Scripture)

God has always provided for us throughout history, since the beginning. Others who have had faith knew that He would continue to do so. “Abraham answered, ‘God Himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.’ And the two of them went on together.” (Genesis 22:8) “So Abraham called the place ‘The Lord Will Provide’ (Yahweh-Yireh). And to this day it is said, ‘On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.’ ” (Genesis 22:14) 

Even the basic necessities for life are provided by the Lord. “You care for the land and water it; You enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so You have ordered it.” (Psalm 65:9)

He is also the One Who provides for us each day and gives us life. “God is my helper! The Lord is the provider for my life.” (Psalm 54:4) He gives us all we need. “He provides rain for the earth; He sends water on the countryside.” (Job 5:10) “This is the way He governs the nations and provides food in abundance.” (Job 36:31)

 “…If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised…” (1 Peter 4:11)
