Reflection on divine provision for the needs of your family
The lesson of today serves as a reminder that God is a dependable provider who is constantly thinking about our needs, especially those of our families. Psalm 68:19 reassures us that God is able and eager to provide for us on a daily basis.
Since God is always dependable to keep His promises, we are called to put our faith in Him to provide for the necessities of our families. This suggests that because He cares for us, we shouldn’t worry about our wants but instead, should cast all of our worries on Him (1 Peter 5:7). All other things will be added to us if we constantly put the kingdom of God and His righteousness first (Matthew 6:33).
Beloved of God, such a life demands total faith, genuine obedience, and absolute thanksgiving:
- We must put our trust in God’s promises and acknowledge that He is a trustworthy provider who will never fail us.
- We must also be submissive to His will, carrying out His directives and putting our complete trust in Him to handle the rest.
- Third, we need to develop an attitude of appreciation, never forgetting to thank God for His daily provisions.
In conclusion, as Christians, we are obligated to conduct ourselves in a way that demonstrates our faith in God’s ability to meet our family’s needs. Knowing that God is a dependable provider who generously showers us with blessings every day, we must have trust, obedience, and appreciation.
