My God Shall Supply
The other night I had an interesting dream. I don’t remember all of it, but what I do remember is significant. I dreamt that I was standing on a huge expanse of sand. Along the sand were little pools of water. Christians I knew were gathered around these small pools and they were catching fish! At first, I did not understand what this meant, but after my morning coffee, I remembered the words found in Psalm 107:35, “He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs; there he brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could settle.”
This dream and this verse speaks so loudly into my life right now. In this season of my life, I am planning a wedding, looking for an apartment to move into with my future hubby and taking the steps necessary to launch our ministry, along with a few other new endeavors. This is a wonderful exciting season, but if I am honest, sometimes I fall into the trap of number crunching. When I look at my needs and compare them to my bank account, it’s easy to feel discouraged. I feel that God wanted to remind me with this simple dream that He is more than able to provide for all of my needs. Even when every resource seems dried up, He is able to make a pool in the desert.
At times we may feel we are caught in the desert. We may feel as though we are lacking something that we need. We may look into our circumstances and feel as though things are dry, dusty and hopeless. It could be a lack of healthy relationships. It could be a lack of finances. It could be a lack of some other resource you need. Good news! In Philippians 4:19, Paul writes, “My God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.”
Our God is a provider. His resources are without limit. He is the God that is able to create something out of nothing. Take your eyes off your lack. Take your eyes off your needs. Take your eyes off your desert and place them on the God who is more than able. Consider your needs met and expect pools of fresh water to begin to appear. Dig beneath the sand and find fish where you never expected to find fish before. God is making a way for you.
