THOUGHTS ON THANKS: PROVISION

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
It is probably a no-brainer that when we approach God in prayer, that we will be asking Him to provide us with our needs. After all, it was Jesus who taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.”

God has been in the providing business ever since the beginning of creation. He provided Adam and Eve with food to eat in the garden, and after they they sinned, He provided animal sacrifices with skins to wear in order to cover their sin. In Genesis 22, it is Jehovah Jireh, or “God will provide,” that provides the ram for sacrifice after Abraham was stopped from sacrificing Isaac. Ultimately, it was God Almighty who provided the Messiah who came to take away the sins of the world.
Coupled with our thanks, letting God know about our needs is pleasing to God. Let us never forget to thank Him for His provisions to us.
