The Lord who sees and meets the need.
According to Psalm 23 God endeavors to lead us away from the place of lack and into the position of abundance. Psalm 23:1 says the Lord is my shepherd I shall not be in want (lack). He has already provided but yet we pray to him to provide. Not all of us but some of us at one point or another, I believe have.
I can’t help but wonder if you are praying to the Lord to provide you with something that he’s already provided you with. Could that be a prayer of unbelief?
The Hebrew word for hear and obey is Continuum; in other words, we won’t listen to what we’re not willing to follow.
“Many times when we don’t want to have our need met the way God leads or are resistant to his method of provision, we close our ears and insist God is not speaking.” Dr. R.
“Sometimes we fail to see our provision because we don’t like the way God is leading” Dr. R.
Many times I’ve had the thought process. “I don’t like the way this is going” it could very well be God’s way and I just don’t recognize it yet. Or don’t want to recognize it.
This question at the end of the chapter is very powerful it requires the use of your imagination.
Use your imagination to create a mental movie. Imagine yourself being led by the spirit to a source to get your needs met. Be sure, however, that you never make people your source. Don’t look to people. Look to God. He may lead you to an extra job or a person’s generosity.
