Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Who Provides - The Promised SEED - The Grace of God - The Intercession Of God
As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor--this [is] the gift of God.
It’s one thing to receive God’s provision. It’s another thing to receive the ability to utilize it. Then, it’s yet another thing to receive the ability, AND to enjoy it! Many people have lived, gained excessive amounts of riches, and died miserable and spiritually-poor people. How can this be? God is the Lord Who Provides! He is the One that provides, not only the increase, but the ability to use it for purposes He deems as good. Then, by His gracious intervention, He teaches us the right way to use His resources, so that our possessions produce satisfaction. If not for the provision of God in all of these facets, we could live with excess, but remain empty.
