If you were a fly on the wall & had been listening to my prayers lately you would probably sit there wondering just how selfish a person can be. You would think I was only focused on asking God for things. You would assume I only wanted God to give and that I didn’t care anything about being thankful or appreciative of all he has blessed me with.
It’s true. Lately I feel like I have only been asking God for provision. Asking for provision from Him is what’s on my heart. It’s what’s on my mind. And it’s what comes out of my mouth.
Provision for our boys.
Provision for me personally.
Provision as I humbly ask people to partner with me both financially and prayerfully.
Provision for our team.
Provision for guidance and direction as we try to figure out our daily steps with the boys.
Provision for our ministry.
But I’m asking for all of this provision, not because I am selfish, but because I know this provision IS possible.
I know HE can provide the monthly supporters I need. I know HE can provide the sack of rice we need to feed the boys for the month. I know HE can provide the materials to build the walls in our center. I know HE can provide protection for our boys. I know HE can!
And when I’m asking for this provision I know I am not asking to ears that are not listening. I am fully confident these things are possible through God. Jehovah Jireh, my provider!
So I ask!
And I cling to His word telling me how he delights in giving good gifts to His children. To me!
“If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!”- Matthew 7:11
