The Promise of His Provision

by J. M. Farro on February 25th, 2024

   “He has given food and provision to those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever and imprint it [on His mind].”  Psalm 111:5 AMP 

   Here is a promise for followers of Christ when we are tempted to worry about our finances or retirement.  With rising costs assailing us at the grocery store, at the gas pumps, and elsewhere, it’s all too easy to become fearful and anxious.

   There are times when I am standing in line at the grocery store, and I silently pray, “Lord, I thank You that You give us food and provision because we fear and reverence You!”  Immediately, peace floods my soul, and I know that God is pleased that I have chosen to put my faith in Him and His Word.

   My husband, Joe, and I have had plenty of opportunities to worry about our finances since we retired several years ago.  In fact, Joe was so fearful about us not having a regular income that he entertained the thought of postponing his retirement.  He was having serious heart problems at the time, and I knew in my heart that if he put off retiring, it could seriously affect his health.  When I pleaded with the Lord to move mightily in our financial situation before Joe was scheduled to retire, God moved heaven and earth to enable us to pay off all our debts before then.  Since then, we have trusted the Lord to “give us food and provision” on a daily basis, and He has never once failed us.

   God is not about to forget His covenant promises to His faithful ones – He even says that they are imprinted on His mind.  Now, it’s up to you and me that WE don’t forget His promises, and that we pray them and stand on them in faith for all of our needs.  As we do, the necessary food and provision will be ours in Jesus’ name!

   Lord, please work in my heart so that I will resist becoming fearful and fretful about my financial situation at any time.  Remind me often that You have promised to abundantly supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)  Thank You that as I seek first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, You will supply all my needs – and then some! (Matthew 6:33)
