Today we will look at a few more Scripture verses that tell us about The providence of God.
1/God provides daily support!
Genesis 48:15 King James Version And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
2/We see God’s providence in all things!
Proverbs 3:6 (KJV) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
3/His providence is unbeatable! Proverbs 21:30 (KJV) There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord.
4/ Man’s work is in vain without the providence of God!
Proverbs 21:31 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord.
Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
The Blessing of the Lord
A Solomonic song of ascents.
1 Unless the Lord builds a house,
its builders labor over it in vain;
unless the Lord watches over a city,
the watchman stays alert in vain.
2 In vain you get up early and stay up late,
working hard to have enough food—
yes, He gives sleep to the one He loves.
AS SAINTS WE SHOULD:
a/ Trust in God’s providence! Matt.6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God[a] and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you. 34 Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matt 10:9 Don’t take along gold, silver, or copper for your money-belts. 29 Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny?[a] Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent.[b]30 But even the hairs of your head have all been counted. 31 So don’t be afraid therefore; you are worth more than many sparrows.
b/ Commit their works to His providence! Proverbs 16:3 Commit your activities to the Lord,
and your plans will be achieved.
c/Encourage one another by the providence of God!
1 Samuel 30:6 David was in a difficult position because the troops talked about stoning him, for they were all very bitter over the loss of their sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God.
d/ Pray depending upon the providence of God! Acts 12:5 So Peter was kept in prison, but prayer was being made earnestly to God for him by the church.
We know the rest of that story that he was set free by God and showed up at that prayer meeting as they prayed.
