Some thoughts about God and His provision

Truth is a beautiful thing. It corrects, encourages, restores and brings healing in ways that seem unthinkable. Prayer is also something that is beautiful. Its a sweet communication between the LORD God and His children.

David says in Psalm 27: 25 -26, "I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or His children begging for bread. He is ever lending generously, and His children become a blessing."

TRUTH: God will not ignore the needs of His children. He will ALWAYS provide.
TRUTH: God is my Daddy, and I am His daughter. I will be taken care of... I belong to HIM and He will not forget me. If you are in Christ, this a truth applies to you as well. You are His child.
TRUTH: God has all the power, strength, ability and means to provide... even when the situation seems impossible.

What I love about verse 26 is that God's children become a blessing. I like the thought that God provides and gives to us so that we can be a blessing. He doesn't give out of obligation. He doesn't give compulsively. He doesn't give because I've begged 1,282.3 times. He gives because He loves me and wants to use me as a blessing for His kingdom.

With this, I ask for your prayers. I need AT LEAST 25% more of my budget to return to campus full-time. Contact me if you want more specifics. Will you pray for God to provide the rest of my budget? Pray for God to continue to provide people around me that I can be a blessing to. Pray for me to remain encouraged by God's Word and His promise to provide... Pray that I would trust and run to His word when the world around me feeds me thoughts of doubt.

Thanks for reading. Thanks for praying.
