Faithful To Provide
“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind” (James 1:6).
God is faithful. Faithful to provide all we need, in fact, He knows our needs even before we realize we have them! Why then, should we ever doubt Him? His will for our welfare supersedes all we believe we know we need. Yet, we often, maybe too often, try to anticipate what we think will be the outcome of what happens in our lives. I think the truth is; we want Him to cause the best for us, that which we want to see happen, but because we allow the thinking of the world to influence our beliefs, we start doubting His participation.
If I prejudge you, believing you aren’t going to act in a certain way, the way I want you to respond, and you know about it, what will you think? If I anticipate your lack of involvement in your response and go on with my own way of dealing with the situation; the way I wish you would respond, how will this make you feel? I can tell you; you won’t consider my faith in you very strong. I might even make you angry. I don’t believe we are fair with God when we treat Him this same way, and we do.
God wants the best for you! You are His prized possession, His child, and He will provide for you. Remember what Jesus said in (Matthew 6:26) when He was instructing you not to worry… “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Let us remember; He who created us loves us, and He will provide for us. No more doubting! Let us be faithful, just as He is faithful.
