“Then God said, ‘I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food.’ And it was so.” – Genesis 1:29-30
I never thought that the order of creation will teach me how wise, generous, and faithful God is. He knows and provides for our needs at the time we need it before we ask or even without asking. Proof of this is that He first prepared our basic needs – food, shelter, air, water – before creating us. Everything’s ready when man first set his foot on earth. God’s plan for us from the start is an abundant life with, for and through Him. Yet when sin entered, the beautiful picture of creation turned ugly. Man became disconnected to God.
For man’s relationship with God to be restored, one must pay the price. Note that in this world, the offender usually must apologize, must offer something to be forgiven. But God does not work that way. Inspite of man’s unworthiness, despite the fact we offended Him, God still provided for the solution because He loves us so much. He gave His Son – Jesus Christ. He offered His only Son, pure and blameless, to die on the cross and save us from our sins so that we’ll be reconciled back to Him. But the good news doesn’t end there though as Jesus defeated death by being alive after three days! Amazing God!
When we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, God sees His Son in us. In Him, our past is redeemed, our present sustained and our future secured.
And this convinces me that God provides.
“If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all – how will He not also graciously give us all things?”- Romans 8:31-32
Whatever your situation is, I hope and pray that you’ll be reminded of and experience more of God’s love. 🙂
