Today’s message begins with a challenge. It’s December 1st, and the world is buzzing with “Christmas”. But sometimes “Christmas” gets so busy that we take our eyes off of the true meaning … the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. The challenge: keep reading the Bible, keep praying, keep reading and sharing these daily messages throughout the month, no matter how busy your calendar gets. Do whatever it takes to keep your eyes focused on Jesus.
Remember that Christmas is a sad time of year for many people who have lost loved ones. The best gift you can give anyone is your time. For those who don’t know Jesus, share your testimony. Call, write, text them daily messages of encouragement … whatever God lays on your heart to do. This Christmas, determine to share His most precious gift: the ability for “whosoever” to spend eternity with Him in heaven. God has already provided everything we need.
Philippians 4:19- “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” 2Corinthians 9:8 - “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:” Matthew 6:31-33 – “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Song Lyrics: God provides, so why do I worry about my life? When You come to my rescue a thousand times; every other voice, it is a lie. God provides in ways I can't explain and can't deny. The little that I have He multiplies. Just when I feel He won't show up on time, God provides! He'll come through when the clouds of doubt rain down on you and test everything you thought you knew. Now you finally see what God can do for you! So tonight, close your eyes; there's no more need to fight …watch God provide! God provides--it's hard to say when there's no food to eat or what you see feels all that life will be; and will this be another year of misery for me. But my faith can't survive on just things I see, and my feelings can't control my destiny. See God, I only want what You believe for me. There's no more need to fight. Watch God provide!
Seek Him first, then claim His promises! Our God provides!
