God is Our Sustainer

Reading for the day: Philippians 4:6

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray for everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

What is the reason that you get out of bed in the morning? Of course you have to go to work so that you can make money but what drives you to even do that?

Think about lifting a heavy load. It might be awkward in shape and throw you off balance. But, when someone else helps you carry that load, it doesn’t seem so heavy and you can regain your center. God is a lot like that person who comes along to help shoulder the load. The difference being that instead of carrying the load itself, He carries you.

How does He carry us, you might ask? It is through the power of the Holy Spirit. When Jesus was preparing for his crucifixion, he told his disciples that when he went away God would send them a Comforter. That is the spirit of God that inhabits every believer when they ask Him into their lives.

The Comforter is God’s promise to you of His presence always and through every problem that you face. People have described the spirit as a “still small voice” or a kind of “knowing.” However God manifests Himself in your life it is first and foremost an act of faith. Without believing in His care and love, He could do nothing to enhance your life.

In Hebrew, Jehovah Jireh means “Lord God, Our Provider.” Abraham coined this phrase when he was given a ram in the bush to sacrifice instead of his son, Isaac. In your life, there has been more than one “ram in the bush” that God has provided – you just didn’t know it. When you give your life to Him, the reality of all that God does in your life is revealed. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without Him.

Prayer Suggestion: Instead of asking God to remove your mountains, ask Him to carry you over them.
