If you are new to “Finding Christ in the Kitchen” series, you may want to start at the beginning and move forward. Don’t forget to grab up your printables along the way. Or you can just join starting right today..I designed it that way!
Now is the time to seek God. To ask for His will and His heart about your cooking, food prep and provision. Be honest with God – are you frustrated or a little depressed about it?
I realize that we just talked about Contentment the past 2 days BUT being content is a heart habit that takes time to establish. So if you are feeling down then simply tell God and ask Him to give you HIS heart concerning this matter.
So what do you think Gods’ heart looks like concerning the matter Provision?
“So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.” Genesis 22:14
“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” Psalms 23:1
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
God promises to provide for us doesn’t he? Sometimes it’s hard to walk in confidence in this matter when the cupboards seem bare and we have so little $$.
Check out God’s amazing provision for Elijah, the woman and the son….
“Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the Lord came to him (Elijah): “Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food.” So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, “Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?” As she was going to get it, he called, “And bring me, please, a piece of bread.”
“As surely as the Lord your God lives,” she replied, “I don’t have any bread—only a handful of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die.”
Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’”
She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food every day for Elijah and for the woman and her family. For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah.”
I Kings 17: 7-16
