So Abraham called the name of that place, "The LORD will provide"; as it is said to this day, "On the mount of the LORD it shall be provided." - Genesis 22:14

The Lord will provide. This should be our constant meditation - in times of adversity, in times of prosperity - we need to remind ourselves of this truth. He sees, He knows what is best for us, and He will provide it. 

My heart was anxious for a few situations that I am praying about for my children when I first sat down in the morning with Him. It's so tempting as a parent to pray for things to work out for your children, for things to go easy for them - and even more tempting to be disappointed when they don't go the way we hoped or prayed. 

But He knows what I ultimately want...and that is for Him to bring them to a knowing relationship with Him. He will provide. Whatever it is that needs to happen for my children to know the Lord intimately, I surrender them to Him because I know He will provide. 

Focusing on this truth brings peace to my anxious heart, and keeps my eyes on Him. 


Press on ~ you are loved 💗
