God will Provide

Some of you are worried about what you are going to eat.

How am I going to pay this bill?
. . .put my kids through college?
. . . ever retire?

Others are worried about how God will come through.

What will happen?
How can this possibly be fixed?
There is no way.

In John 4, Jesus told the disciples, “I have food you don’t know about.” (Jo. 4:32)

Friends, God has food you don’t know about.

You don’t have to see the provision today to trust it will come tomorrow. You don’t have to know Sunday’s daily bread because it’s only Saturday. You don’t have to see where, how, when, why and what He’ll do, because: He hasn’t shown it to you, yet.

God has food you don’t know about. Don’t be one who needs to see — to believe.

Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” (Jo. 20:29)

Be “blessed” because you didn’t see, yet still believed. Be “that” type. You can always start today.

Jesus was hungry when the disciples told him to eat in John 4. But. . . He had food — they “didn’t know about”. It was called “doing the will of God” (Jo. 4:34). Jesus fasted. Hidden food is often spiritual, not only natural.

The will of God, for you, is that:

  • you trust Him
  • you love Him
  • you surrender
  • you allow Him to lead you

He’ll feed you.

  • Please don’t stop writing! The Lord uses your words to reach the depths of my heart and mind. I write them, along with coordinated scriptures, on cards and place them as reminders to myself of what God is teaching me. I’m reading your books, subscribe to your email blog posts. I’m a missionary outside of the U.S., and can sometimes feel alone and fearful, and God is using your writing to teach me. Thank you for every bit of effort you put I to “doing the will of God”!

  • Thank you for your message for today and I do worry for what might be in store at times . I am though in my mid’ 50’s . I am currently am hoping for somethings will come to reality . I am though relying on what for little resources I have . Even though I am relying on one other source and that is Jesus Christ . Thank you for your prayers .

  • Thanks so much for sharing this message! I went to the scriptures and read more and it’s such a reminder of how God wants to walk in faith and not by sight. The interesting thing is that before I read this message, I was headed to a job interview today and while I was on my way, my car broke down:-(. I have never ever had this happen to me before. At first, I was upset and so embarrassed to have to call the recruiter to let her know that I wouldn’t be able to make the interview due to my car situation. I am currently in transition, so this was the last thing I was hoping. After having my mom pick me up and leaving the car in a parking lot, God gave me peace. God reminded me of this very message about “not” focusing on what I see and focusing on what I can control, which is my actions and attitude. I got home, no car, but peace knowing that God is in control and that He will give me another opportunity to interview for the job, if it’s in His will. The cool thing is that the recruiter at first said the client was not going to reschedule, however, I got a call back saying that the client still wants to bring me in for an in-person interview, which will now be on Friday. Praise God that I focused on what I “could not see” vs. on what I could see. God bless you Kellie! Thank you for allowing the lord to use you and for speaking truth! Love you sister and can’t wait to read more articles.
