It Never Runs Dry

Our car doesn’t start.

The electricity goes out.

Our debit card suddenly doesn’t work at the grocery store.

The majority of the things we really count on in our lives will let us down at one time or another.

A job we thought we would have for a long time ends.

People who we trusted disappoint us.

There is only one thing that we can always count on – our Father God will never let us down.

He is trustworthy, faithful and perfect.

He can’t mess up.

We might think he made a mistake when he does something we don’t understand.

But it’s impossible for him to do anything wrong.

We can always count on him.

We read in 1 Kings the account of the widow who made a loaf of bread with her last handful of flour and gave that bread to Elijah.JUne 4 2016 it never runs dry

Then she discovered that she had enough flour and oil to make another loaf for herself and her son.

And she continued to have enough to make bread through the long drought that was going on where she lived.

God provided for her and he will provide for us.

It may seem like there is not going to be enough but God’s supplies never run dry.

His love and grace and provision for us never run out.

He is watching over us today…right now.

We can count on it.

Thank you, Abba Father.

All We Need

God our provider.

And he gives us everything we need.Jan 27 2015 All We Need

Not all we want.

All we need.

He provides for us just like he provided quail and manna for the Israelites as they travelled through the desert in Exodus.  Each one of the Israelites had all the food they needed.

God provided for them….and he provides for us now.

Living in our materialistic culture, we can often be lured into thinking that we don’t have enough.  We start worshipping the god of More.

We can quickly be enticed by the need to have more.  We end up spending our time and energy on getting more instead of building a close relationship with our omnipotent God who created it all and would give us more if he wanted us to have it.  He tells us in Luke to be faithful with what we have – that is his provision for us.

Do we have enough faith to be content with what God has already given us?  Do we trust God enough to put away our lists of wants and live of life of contentment and generosity?

Thank you, Abba Father, for all of the things you have already provided for us.
