“And My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19, NKJV.
When I needed God to provide, I would often say, “God, I need you to provide a home, I need money to pay the bills, etc.” I would go down my list asking for everything I thought I needed until the Lord showed me a new perspective. One day He asked, “Are you looking for My provision or are you seeking the vision I have set before you?” I then looked up the word provision and discovered it’s meaning to be quite interesting. Provision is defined as something done in advance to prepare for something else. The prefix pro- means “in favor of”, and -vision is “the act or power of anticipating that which will come to be; the state of being able to see.”
God in His faithfulness will always provide for you as He does for the birds and the lilies of the field. He will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. God will give you vision, and He will provide for it to come to pass. When you go to God in prayer, rather than asking for materialistic things, ask Him to give you clear vision. Ask Him to help you see what He wants you to see. He will abundantly provide for His vision for your life.
Prayer: Father, I love you. Today You have enlightened me by Your truth. I need Your vision, not my own. Please help me to see what You want me to see. I want to stand firm for all that You are and choose for me to be in You. I thank You for Your vision in advance, and I trust you to provide. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
