Promises for: Provision in the LORD

John 14:14
"If ye shall ask any thing in My name, I will do it."

compiled by Katie Stewart


"Faith... reveals itself in... committing itself to the testimony and will of God,
in resting in the promises and declarations of God, and in the word and work of Christ."
-from "SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY" --New Window by Charles G. Finney

"Can ye find any fault with your Saviour?... Hath his truthfulness departed?
Have his words been broken? Have his promises failed?...
Ah, no!... in him there is no sin."

-from "SERMONS" --New Window by C. H. Spurgeon

"God is represented as clothed with zeal as with a cloak; and after making some of his
exceeding great and precious promises
, he concludes by saying,
'the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.'
-from "SYSTEMATIC THEOLOGY" --New Window by Charles G. Finney

Timely Supplies ---New Window
by J. Hudson Taylor (1832-1905)
from the autobiography
To China... with Love
"Not infrequently our God brings His people into difficulties on purpose that they may come to know Him as they could not otherwise do. Then He reveals Himself as 'a very present help in trouble,' and makes the heart glad indeed at each fresh revelation of a Father's faithfulness. We who only see so small a part of the sweet issues of trial often feel that we would not for anything have missed them; how much more shall we bless and magnify His name when all the hidden things are brought to light!"

GOD Glorified in Man's Dependence ---New Window
by Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758)
"That the creature should have so absolute and universal a dependence on God, provision is made that God should have our whole souls, and should be the object of our undivided respect. If we had our dependence partly on God, and partly on something else, man's respect would be divided to those different things on which he had dependence. Thus it would be if we depended on God only for a part of our good, and on ourselves, or some other being, for another part: or if we had our good only from God, and through another that was not God, and in something else distinct from both, our hearts would be divided between the good itself, and him from whom, and him through whom, we received it. But now there is no occasion for this, God being not only he from or of whom we have all good, but also through whom, and is that good itself, that we have from him and through him. So that whatsoever there is to attract our respect, the tendency is still directly towards God; all unites in him as the centre."

Our Substance Blessed
"Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store"
(Deuteronomy 28:5).
by C. H. Spurgeon
"Obedience brings a blessing on all the provisions which our industry earns for us. That which comes in and goes out at once, like fruit in the basket which is for immediate use, shall be blest; and that which is laid by with us for a longer season shall equally receive a blessing. Perhaps ours is a hand-basket portion. We have a little for breakfast and a scanty bite for dinner in a basket when we go out to do our work in the morning. This is well, for the blessing of God is promised to the basket. If we live from hand to mouth, getting each day's supply in the day, we are as well off as Israel; for when the LORD entertained His favored people He only gave them a day's manna at a time. What more did they need? What more do we need?

But if we have a store, how much we need the LORD to bless it! For there is the care of getting, the care of keeping, the care of managing, the care of using; and, unless the LORD bless it, these cares will eat into our hearts till our goods become our gods and our cares prove cankers.

O LORD, bless our substance. Enable us to use it for Thy glory. Help us to keep worldly things in their proper places, and never may our savings endanger the saving of our souls."

"Whereby are given unto us Exceeding Great And Precious Promises:
that by These ye might be partakers of the Divine Nature,
having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience Godliness;
And to Godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
For if these things be in you, and abound,
They make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful
in the Knowledge of our LORD Jesus Christ
2 Peter 1:4-8
