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

We are told over and over in scripture not to be anxious, not to fear, and to trust that God will provide our every need. If we are to ever battle the unbelief of anxiety, we need to believe this to our very core. He will provide. 

It is the only truth that permeates my fear when I looking at a situation that seems hopeless or impossible, I can lay it down with relief at the feet of our Lord knowing that He has a plan. I can let go of the anxiety that I need to find a way out because I know that He will. There is so much freedom from the bondage of anxiety when I trust that He will provide. 

The opposite of this truth leaves the entire burden on me to resolve. I have spent many years working hard to maintain order in my world. Difficult situations in my childhood left me desperate to control my circumstances. I would do anything to avoid the chaos, so I carried that entire burden on my shoulders for a very long time. When God finally taught me that I am powerless to control situations or cause people to act or respond in a certain way, I felt my chains begin to fall. And when He showed me that He not only was sovereign over my circumstances, but that He was working all things out for my good, I found freedom. I don’t need to fear what may happen because I know that He will provide. 

So very thankful that I love a God who reminds me of this truth over and over again. 


Press on ~ you are loved 💗
