Have you ever helped a child prepare for their morning at school? Not wanting our little ones to be without what they need, we make sure their backpack has the daily provision – lunch or lunch money, books, paper, pens, pencils, homework, permission slips, maybe a Band-Aid or two for any bumps or bruises, a note for encouragement, etc…
Every day there are requirements for that day, and every day we check to make sure they have what they need.
Did you know before you were born, your Heavenly Father knew what you would need for every single one of your days?
I chuckled this morning as I pictured angels before I was birthed into this world loading up the “backpack” for my life journey. Perhaps a heavenly conveyor-belt filled with God’s word, His truth, financial provision, the writings of saints before me, soul-wound bandages, grace notes, wisdom, the fruit of the Spirit…. Everything loaded up and pre-prepared.
Whatever we face, God’s provision is already provided. Nothing is forgotten or overlooked because God knows every breath we take and every need we need.
Rest easy, friends. God’s provision is already loaded up!
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.” ~ 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV)
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need you will abound in every good work.” ~ 2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)
