In order to fully embrace God’s provisions, you have to listen to what He’s saying.
Hear His Voice
“God only gives three answers to prayer: 1. “Yes!” 2. “Not Yet” 3. “I have something better in mind.” –Author Unknown.
Many of us have run across this statement before, and this wisdom couldn’t be closer to the truth. God always keeps His promises according to His purpose for us and God provides in accordance with these promises. It’s in the Bible, Psalm 89:34 “No, I will not break my covenant; I will not take back one word of what I said.” But sometimes in the noisiness of our everyday lives, we have trouble hearing what He’s saying to us. In order to fully embrace God’s provisions, you have to listen to what He’s saying. Here are five things God will provide when you’re ready to listen.
We all need the encouragement and support of our family members, friends and loved ones but it’s not always easy for us to receive it when we’re going through a rough period or doubt that we deserve it. But fear not. Deuteronomy 31:6 says “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Encouragement from God is always genuine. Whether you’re dealing with the betrayal of a family member, a cheating spouse or fearful of a new chapter in your life, know that God will encourage you. No matter what you’re going through, He never gives up on us and His love never fails. Just be still and listen to Him.
A Healthy Relationship
Whether you’re single and open to love, or involved in a committed relationship, God wants your relationship life to be healthy. On your relationship journey towards your prince (or princess) charming, many of us will meet a lot of frogs, people who don’t have our best interests at heart and that’s ok. God is with you every step of the way. If you’re struggling in your relationship or not finding a match, remember this verse taken from 1 Peter 5:6-7 “Humble yourselves, therefore under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” While you can’t control the timing of love, you can lift up your concerns and He will answer. You just have to be open to the idea that it may not be the answer you’re looking for. But whatever the answer is, it involves health
God will provide you with a financial breakthrough when you’re ready to listen to what He’s telling you. There are many indicators to this promise in the Bible. We are told that we will not lack anything that is needed. Psalms 34:9 says “Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack anything good.” If you’re struggling in some form financially, know that God will take care of your every-day-needs and when you’re ready to take the necessary steps to change your financial situation in order to have a breakthrough, He will walk alongside you. Seek Him and He will provide.
A Spirit to Overcome Temptation
God will provide you with a spirit to overcome temptation when you’re willing to listen to Him. Read 1 Corinthians 10:13 which says “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” We are all victims of sin and temptation. This can manifest in the form of lust, addiction, infidelity, greed and compulsivity among other things. But God promises us victory over temptation and the enemy will flee when we submit and draw near to God.
