MY GOD DOES PROVIDE

STORY LEAD - IN

Old man trapped on roof top during flood conditions:

A helicopter flies over and a crew member drops a ladder and yells - " grab the ladder"

The old man refuses and proclaims : " My God will rescue me. God will provide."

The old man is not wrong. The Bible tells that GOD does Provide.

a. the word provide appears 102 times in the Bible

b. ( get dictionary definition of provide )

In the following passages GOD says He will PROVIDE:

1 Chronicles 29:16

O LORD our God, as for all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name, it comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.

( This passage acknowledges everything comes from GOD! )

Meanwhile back on the roof top: The flood waters have risen and a rescue team in a row boat paddles up to the roof line and yells at the old man " hop in. We`ll take you to safety."

The old man replies, " ...my God will rescue me. God will provide. "

The old man is still not wrong.

You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit

You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it.

Meanwhile back on the roof top: A power boat cruises up to the roof top. A police officer yells at the old man, " Get in or else you’re going to drown."

The old man replies, " ...my God will rescue me. God will provide. "

The old man is still not wrong.

God does PROVIDE

Genesis 22

1 Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, "Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied.

2 Then God said, "Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about."

3 Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.

4 On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance.

5 He said to his servants, "Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you."
