Sorry to forego a formal post today, but I just had to share this song. I was lower than a snake’s belly yesterday (in my Spirit). It is not the lack or the delay in God’s answer to my prayers that get me down, but seeing the affect that this all has on my family that gets to me. Anyhow, I just thought I would share that. As a man, you feel like it is “your” job to provide. When you can’t…you feel helpless. I am learning perhaps instead we should be teaching our families that it is ALWAYS HIS job to provide…and He is good at it. Tough times are an opportunity to teach your family about Jehivah Jireh. It’s a punch in the gut, for sure, but remember the illusion that we are “providing” for our families, even in good time, is just that, an illusion. In good or in lean times He alone is always our SOLE provider.
This song was just “perfectly” starting to play when I turned the key to drive to my first job yesterday. (WMBW Moody Radio 88.9) Wow…what a Word of God for me. Had to share it with you. Let’s EXTOL Him (upcoming post tease).
Genesis 22:14 is the ONLY time this name for God is used in the Bible. Stop and read this familiar story and be reminded of His “resume” of provision.
PS: Got to my ABF at 6:30 (Brainerd Hills Baptust Church…Chattanooga, if you are looking for an awesome weekly, Bible study) and a visitor was explaining how he lost his “best” job, how God provided, and then how that loss opened the door for an even better job. Hmmm, and my son called me in the morning to pray for me. Sounds like “angels” and The Holy Ghost were working OT time to get a message to me yesterday.
If you are “waiting” for something…listen to this beautiful song…while you wait on Him. GOD PROVIDES…He has to…that is His name.
