Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide
Ann says the literal meaning of “to provide” is “ to SEE”
God will see to it that we are taken care of
God …. sees a need and acts in deed
God ….observes and serves
No wonder He says to care for each other
to FEED the hungry
to LOVE the unlovely
to HELP the needy
Ann says ‘ you don’t need to climb mountains named I WILL PERFORM. You don’t need to climb mountains named I will PRODUCE. Every mountains that every Christian ever faces, the Lord levels with sufficient grace : THE LORD WILL PROVIDE.
WOW… can we simply rest in that!
ADVENT – Eyes to see grace in action that has come to level every need with provision
PRO – expert VISION – seeing
God the expert who sees just how to deal with everything
Can we have Faith that HE does?
Ann asks and will you join me in answering
When do you feel the pressure to perform, to produce?
Name the ways God has provided grace for the gaps in your life?
Take a moment to thank God for the ultimate gift of salvation?
The world barrels down on us
work harder, make more money
be more efficient, get more out of your day
so we push and push
raising blood pressure to pass the test and trial
The whole world is geared like that
how to get a cleaner home in 7 days
how to organize and thrive
How TO BE MORE
How to be more
no….more is already provided
He is the more we seek
and when I seek Him – I find rest for my weary
He gives me grace for the gaps in my life
G – goals …. I want to accomplish
A– activities … life can be so busy
P– people …. so many of them – difficult and wonderful all at the same time
S– self …. when I am tired and running empty
GAPS – God Always Provides Salvation – in these trenches
He gives Himself
Thank you Lord for Jesus
the salvation of my soul
the One who I can cling to when the world has its hold
I can walk in kindness
I can walk in love
I can be a blessing
because of Your great SON – Christ the ONE who saved me
from myself and from this world
the ONE who provided for me
a way to live a new
no more in hurry and the worry
no more do I sink or swim
I simply call out JESUS
turn my eyes from my need
For God has provided me …..HIM!
and when I see Him
I notice how its been settled all along
