"So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?’... But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:31, 33
"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church, and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." Ephesians 3:20-21
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” Romans 8:32
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:1-6
We could never out-give the richness of God over us. Because His provision is never based on us. It's based on His character, and He is Jehovah-Jireh, the One who provides.
I am resting there today. Right in the middle of His abundance.
I hope you are too.
