When times are tough and money seems tight, we must lean on the Lord. It’s in these times that we truly learn to trust in God and know that he will provide for us. It can seem out of reach but friend, there is nothing to hard for God to do. He cares for you and your family, it is his will for you to be prosperous! Here are 15 bible verses about God’s provision.
A Testimony Of God’s Provision
I remember when me and my husband first got married. We had no idea what we were doing when it came to finances. We were SO young, I was 21 and he was 20. All we knew is that we loved the Lord. We wanted to honor him by getting married and glorifying him in our marriage. While we had the right idea in mind, we had no idea that getting married would test us in so many ways.
One of those ways, was money. It’s unfortunate to say, but we sure struggle and it pushed us past our limits at times. It was an area of our lives that grew our faith so much. Thank God we knew the Lord and had a close relationship with him. Without him, we would not be where we are today. With the help of the Lord Almighty we were able to always pay for the things we needed. We never stopped tithing. We knew even though it wasn’t always easy to give 10% of what we made, the Lord would honor it. And boy oh boy he sure did. When something would happen, we would see God’s goodness pour into our life at the most unexpected times. Offering tithes unto him as it talks about in Malachi 3:10 was a non-negotiable for you.
“Bring ye the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”Malachi 3:10
Thankfully we were able to trust that God’s word was/is true and we held it close to us. We believed what his word said. We choose to take hold of his word everyday without letting our faith be wavered. Don’t get me wrong, we are not perfect but praise God he is so merciful and loving. He walked us through each trial and valley we faced in our finances. We knew that it was God providing in our life as we began to see our income increase. He sent his Holy Spirit to lead us through each season and opened up great job opportunities as well! He not only met our physical needs but our spiritual needs by filling us with thoughts of peace and comfort.
How To Trust God Will Provide
We know that the Bible talks about the love of money being the root of all evil. But we also know that we need money to live these days. Not to desire being rich or have fancy things. It’s to be able to pay for the things we need comfortably. The Lord wants us to be successful. He wants us to live comfortably, so how do we trust that he will provide? By believing in the word of God and trusting what it says. Not only believing but really taking hold of it and not doubting it. When we doubt, our faith is weakened. When we pray scriptures about God’s provision, our faith will flourish. We must cast evil spirits out of the way in Jesus’ name. Things that would hinder us from receiving the provision and promises of God, they have to go and have no place in our life. He does not want us to live in days of famine but in the blessing of the Lord continually.
Is It God’s Will For You To Be Successful
Yes, it is! God’s promises aren’t just about money but also about having enough food, shelter, clothing, and salvation. He promises us he will provide our needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Whether you are trusting God for money, food, shelter, or even that piece of land you’ve been desiring. You can trust he will provide that for you! The Lord provides for everyone who love him and keeps his commandments, even in times of uncertainty. Trusting in God and believing his word is the greatest thing we can do. Not only in times of needing his provision but always!
The word of the Lord is true, here are 15 verses about God’s provision (taken from the King James version)
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand, but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
I love them that love me, and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honor are with me; durable riches and righteousness.
He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in Fatih; giving glory to God and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able to perform.
Therefore I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. is not the life more than meat and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air, they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns.; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Wherefore if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, oh ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? or what shall we drink? or wherewithal shall we be clothed? For your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: casting all your care upon him; for he cares for you.
But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those in his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
2 Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make grace abound toward you, that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding In all thy ways acknowledge him, and she shall direct thy paths
He turned the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into water springs and there he taketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation; and sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase. He blessed them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and sufferers not their cattle to decrease.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
if ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
The young ions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they the seek the Lord shall not want any good thing
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus
My dear friends there is no lack of food, finances, or anything when we have the kingdom of God on our side. As we read his word and believe it in our hearts, we allow his Holy Spirit to act in our lives. I believe you will see the windows of heaven open up in your life and that the Lord of Hosts will bless you abundantly if you are in a waiting season. The Lord lack no good thing, and I know you will see good health, prosperity, glorious riches, and the provision God brings.
