And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work, 2 Corinthians 9:8
When God unmistakably demonstrates His replenishing power in supernatural ways, it awakens the world. Jesus did just that: once with a crowd of 5,000, then again with a crowd of 4,000. He demonstrated that He is the God who provides (see Matthew 14:14-21, 15:32-38).
But seeing the thousands needing to be fed, some of the disciples suggested Jesus send them away to nearby towns to purchase their own food. In human terms, it seemed the most responsible thing to do. But Jesus turned to the supernatural power of God. Moved with compassion, He confidently told the disciples to begin feeding the multitudes. Jesus never wavered in His complete and utter trust in Jehovah Jireh, our Provider.
God has made you a promise in His Word, and on this you can rely: “My God shall supply all your need [need, not “wants”] according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
Do you have needs today you fear God may not meet? Go to Him in humble submission and rest upon His promise. Ask God to fill you and your family with complete trust in Jehovah Jireh.
