Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God for help, and wander about for lack of food? (Job 38:41 ESV)
Thank you Father. I am not worthy, but that hasn’t stopped you from providing and relentlessly blessing me with your love. I pray that I can give as you have given to me.
I had a moment of reflection yesterday through a conversation with another friend (or provision) that God has blessed me with during this quest. My new friend asked if I have met with or talked to a guy that stepped into my life during the initial phases of this journey. I explained I haven’t met with him for some time now. Not because we don’t want to, just because we simply haven’t. When I embarked on this process of destroying the life that I built to pursue the kingdom of God, a pastor from my church obediently followed God’s call and stepped into my life. Some might say that this is what pastors do, so what’s the big deal? True, but there was nothing phony about this situation. There was never a sense that he was only carrying out his pastoral duties. It is true, our reflection of God is rooted in how we view God. The truth that was revealed, after reflecting back on our conversations, is that this guy really cared because God really cares. At that point in my life I felt I had done nothing to be worthy of receiving anything from God except condemnation. But God, His Holy Spirit through the loving sacrifice of His son Jesus Christ does not condemn. God doesn’t fail us when we seek Him. Therefore, His unconditional love will never fail us and He will always be there to provide. Even though I burned and destroyed countless gifts of relationship with others that God blessed me with in my past, there He was with another provision to help me along the way. This has continued to be true throughout my quest. God will provide when seek his kingdom first.
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33 ESV) #truth
Even if you feel you don’t deserve these blessings, you do. You are worthy and you are worth it. Condemnation is not from God. God loves, God never gives up, God will never fail you. God is here with you right now, and he will always provide.
