The Scripture says, “When Job prayed for his friends, he got well.” When he served others, he went higher. If he had stayed focused on himself, he would have stayed where he was. Something powerful happens when you get your mind off yourself and you go out and be good to somebody else.
If we could do this in our own strength, we wouldn’t need God. God will put dreams in your heart that you can’t accomplish by yourself. You don’t have the resources, the funds, the connections. It’s easy to get discouraged and let what we see in the natural talk us out of it. This is where you have to stir your faith up and say, “God, I believe You have supernatural provision.” God wouldn’t have put that dream in your heart if He didn’t have a way to bring it to pass.
God is going to do some things that leave you awestruck. The reason we can’t see how is we’re natural and God’s supernatural. We’re limited, but God is unlimited. If you get stuck on the how, you’ll talk yourself out of it. Your mind will come up with a thousand reasons why it’s not going to happen. God’s ways are not our ways. He has ways you’ve never thought of.
We can stay in peace. He’s the Lord, our provider. Not our job, our provider; our boss, our provider; our salary, our provider. No, the God who spoke worlds into existence, the God who makes streets out of gold, the God who causes fish to show up, the God who brings water out of a rock, the God who puts rams in a thicket, the God who said you’ll lend and not borrow, the God who said your cup will run over. That’s Who’s ordering your steps. That’s Who has planned out your future. You may know Him as your Savior. That’s the most important. You may know Him as your healer. That’s good. But you also need to know Him as your provider. He has supernatural provision.
When we look at our circumstances, sometimes we don’t see how we can get ahead. How we can accomplish our dreams, how we can own and not just rent, how can we leave an inheritance to our grandchildren like the Scripture says. With inflation, higher gas prices, food costing more, in the natural, we may not see a way. But God is a supernatural God. When we come to the end of our resources, He steps in and says, “I’ll make streams in the desert. I’ll take five loaves and two fish and multiply them to feed thousands.”
