Showers of Blessing!

“And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering” Genesis 22:8.

Abraham was so confident that the Lord will provide the lamb for the burnt offering. We read in James 2:23, “And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.” As they were climbing the mountain for the offering, on the other side of the same mountain the lamb provided by God was climbing for the offering.

To believe God blindfolded needs much of super natural faith. When we started believing the Lord, He started doing supernatural things in our lives. Our lives were transformed in no time. People who knew us were just amazed. God performed miracles in our lives and in fact He is doing it every day of 2011.

When King Artaxerxes found the cause of the sad face on Nehemiah, God touched the heart of the gentile King which made him provide resources for Nehemiah. (Nehemiah 2:8)

God provides His resources and people for His own children. He has appointed people in different parts of the world to take care of us. See how he provided the ravens (1 Kings 17:4) and later on a widow at Zarephath (1 Kings 17:9) to take care of Prophet Elijah.

Let us see what the Lord says to Joshua, “I will not leave you nor forsake you” (Joshua 1:5).

When King Jehoram of Israel, King Jehoshaphat of Judah and the King of Edom marched through the wilderness of Edom to fight the King Mesha of Moab they faced a severe problem on the way. “There was no water for the army, nor for the animals that followed them.” (2 Kings 3:9). As they approached Prophet Elisha, God provided them a way out of their horrible condition which was to “Make this valley full of ditches” (2 Kings 3:16). We read in 2 Kings 3:22, “Then they rose up early in the morning, and the sun was shining on the water…” God provided water for the people and the animals even without the wind or rain but He wanted them to make ditches which were an act of faith.

Dear reader, our God is a great provider for His children. He is fully focussed on us and opens doors for us which we are not able to open. Believe Him and He will do everything according to His plans for you. As we read in Exodus 33:14, “And He said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” When the provider is in action, it is time to rest on His promises.

Be Blessed!
