God Provides for His Own
“And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
This is Marie’s story. Marie is from Jamaica and is one our (Thoughts About God) Prayer Partners. She is 53 years old. It is a story of God’s daily provision throughout her life and will surely encourage you.
“I want to share my testimony with those who are seeking financial and other blessings from God. My daily walk with God is one blessing after another.
I was saved when I was 12 years old–lost my mother when I was 15 and have also lost my only child. No one came to my rescue but God. Every time He sent someone to meet my needs. I would wake up in the morning and find money, food or clothing. I just give thanks.
I grew tired of living from pay check to pay check, but looking back, I recognize that He has always come through for me and so I share with others whatever he bless me with. My cupboards have never gone dry or empty. My brothers and sisters–trust God for everything and give Him thanks for it.
I am working, but my take home pay is little, yet every day He provides the bus fare, the lunch and money to buy my medication. God is good all the time and all he wants us to do is trust him for everything. Ask him and believe him for the answers.
One of the things I learned over the years is to give thanks for everything no matter how small it is or seems. God provides for His own. We (people around the world) are experiencing difficulty now, but God is in control. Just like He protected the children of Israel and provided for them, He will do the same for his children in the difficult times we are facing now.
I could go on but remember Maria is praying for you and your prayer requests. I know God is answering them even now.
Believing with your whole heart that God is blessing you and will provide for all your needs takes an act of your will. The enemy will always put thoughts in our mind disputing God’s promises to us.
We need help to believe God and His Word – or better – the one Jesus called the “Helper.”
If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, God has given you His Holy Spirit to help you live life according to His perfect plan — trusting and believing that He will do as He has promised.
Why not pray this simple prayer and by faith invite Him to fill you with His Spirit:
Dear Father, I need You. I acknowledge that I have sinned against You by directing my own life–by not believing your promises of provision.. I thank You that You have forgiven my sins through Christ’s death on the cross for me. I now invite Christ to again take His place on the throne of my life. Fill me with the Holy Spirit as You commanded me to be filled, and as You promised in Your Word that You would do if I asked in faith. I pray this in the name of Jesus. As an expression of my faith, I thank You for directing my life and for filling me with the Holy Spirit. Thank you that You will always provide my needs. Amen
