God Provides

“God Provides” by Kirk Hunt

Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

2 Kings 4:7 KJV

The widow’s sons likely moved with exaggerated caution. The borrowed vessels and pots brimmed full of valuable oil. Breaking something would create a double loss.

God’s provision is always extraordinary. God often gives more than enough. Ask the widow.

She probably ran to pay the debt that threatened her sons. Likely, for the first time since her husband’s funeral, she could spend a coin without an agonizing decision.  Because God provided.

God provided the single jar of oil she poured out. God touched the hearts of friends and neighbors who lent their vessels and pots. God gave the miracle increase of oil that provided for this faithful family.

God provided in their past, then the present and again for the future. She had never been uncared for at any time. Even when she didn’t know it or feel it.

No matter what’s going on in your life, God is there. He provided to get you here. He is providing to keep you here. God is placing in your hand what you need for the future.

God wouldn’t have brought you to this place to leave you now. His faithfulness is working for you at this moment. Get you and yours ready to live in His provision.

Think: God has provided, is providing and will provide for you.

Pray: “Lord, thank You for Your provision in my life; past present and future.”
