I AM Providing...

"See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared" (Exodus 23:20).

"'See, I am sending an angel ahead of you...' I know what you need. I know the fears you have. I know what keeps you awake at night, wondering how all that needs to be worked out will somehow fall miraculously in place. I know what you lack. I am fully aware of your deficiencies and your insufficiency. 

I am still the God that is more than able to provide for your every need. I am the One who crafted every facet of creation with the words formed on my lips. I spoke out and it came to be. I took my people out of Egypt and provided them with manna, with quail, and with water from a rock. Twice. Most importantly I provided them with my presence. Like a cloud by day and a fire by night, I guided my people and provided for their every need.

I am providing for you. You are my child. You were known within the depth of my mind's eye and fashioned by the steady strength of my own hand. I know where you are. I know where I've destined you to be. I know what is holding back. Rest assured, because I know how to get you there.

My provision is perfect. My timing is uncompromisingly exact. My love for you has never waned. Each trial you face that magnifies the emptiness that exists in your life is yet another opportunity for you to see my grace that is highlighted as more than enough. Each moment you face in weakness is another iron in the fire of seeing My strength being made perfect in spite of your weakness.

Whatever you need is found in Me. You are My child. I am your Father. My love is everlasting. My grace is more than enough. My mercy is far reaching. And most of all, I am walking this road with you. I AM your very present help in time of your every need."  - The Great I AM.
