In this post, we continue exploring the gifts we receive from God through our prayer relationship. The first gift was love, the second peace, the third revelation. These gifts can come over and over again as the Lord pours out on you, strengthening and encouraging as you become whom He created you to be. The fourth gift is provision which is the topic of this post today.
(You can begin reading the entire series by visiting our post dated April 9th. We pick up the prayer shawl story where we left off last time.)
We pray and receive God’s love, we pray and receive God’s peace, we pray and receive God’s revelation which prepares to pray and receive God’s provision. This is a beautiful picture of both our relationship with God in prayer, which answers why so often we seem to wait so long for our yes, provision, to come.
God cares more about you than you could ever imagine. Remembering we are clay in the potter’s hands, Romans 9:20 – 23. It is in the heat of adversity as we wait, where we are molded by His love. It is as we wait, where He shares His peace and revelation, molding us into the beautiful vessels able to receive His provision!
We must let go of the notion of being like dogs running after scraps of provision from the table of a faceless god, and embrace our provision as a nature part of our relationship with our God, who truly loves us. We receive our Father’s love, peace and through revelation we become aware that our wants and what God knows we need maybe two very different things. As we come into this correct understanding, we can let go of our wants, to rightly embrace God’s provision which He desires us to receive.
Receiving God’s provision is less about what we want and more about who that provision will mold us into being, so much different then the world! God is great and greatly to be praised!
