“The Lord Provides”


Luke 12:27-27 (TLB)

“Look at the lilies! They don’t toil and spin, and yet Solomon in all his glory was not robed as well as they are.  And if God provides clothing for the flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, don’t you suppose that he will provide clothing for you, you doubters?”


This scripture reminds us of God’s loving care and how He watches over us and is there to provide for us all that we need in that particular moment of need.


I heard one of my favorite news contributors being asked a question and it went something like this…The interviewer asked him “If you had to give words of advice relative to this situation what would you say?”    His humble face showed that he did not have the answer in that present moment that he was being interviewed but then he said, “The Lord would provide.”  Basically he was saying that if  he had  to have an answer to that question that he would know exactly what to say when that moment came.  He knew God would put the words in his mouth to speak.


This man’s words just refreshed my heart and reminded me that this is how life is to be lived.  Many times things can look so complicated.  Sometimes it seems we can fear making decisions.  We may be afraid that we are not going to have the answers that we need.  Yet if we trust Him to provide in the exact moment of need THE LORD WILL PROVIDE.


I felt challenged to just ponder this thought more.  When I need wisdom…The Lord will provide.   When I need strength…The Lord will provide.  When I need direction…The Lord will provide.  Think about all you may need and then begin to become strong in your faith that the Lord will provide!
