Summary: Our sufficiency is in God, and from God. He is the provider of all things as we choose to trust in Him.

From the beginning of the book of Genesis we see God at work when He created the whole universe. And after creating everything God said it was good - (Genesis 1:1 - 31).

And in Genesis 1: 26 - 30 we can see that God created us in His own image and likeness, and blessed us. God is a God of love and loves us so much, His plan for us from the onset is to see us been blessed with all He created for us.

Remember in the garden of Eden, All Adam had to do was to tend to the garden and the LORD commanded him to eat from any tree in the garden except only from the tree that gave knowledge about the good and evil - (Genesis 2:1 - 17). Then God gave Adam a companion named Eve - (Genesis 2: 18 - 25). God had made everything available for them and they also enjoyed the presence of God any time He came down - (Genesis 3:8).

So we can see that our God is the great provider and as always been providing for us His children.

God is faithful and knows all our needs even before we have any need, because He is God all over the earth and sees all things - (Proverbs 15:3).

In John 3:16 God gave up His Only Begotten Son, so that we can be reconciled back to Him when our first parents fell. The love that God had for us is an unconditional love and He did not want to leave us in a fallen state, and this made Him send down His Son so that we can go back to the way we were with God. Having a relationship with Him and been able to fellowship with Him at all times.

In John 6:22 - 35

Jesus is the Bread from Heaven

On the following day, when the people who were standing on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other boat there, except that one which His disciples had entered, and that Jesus had not entered the boat with His disciples, but His disciples had gone away alone— however, other boats came from Tiberias, near the place where they ate bread after the Lord had given thanks— when the people therefore saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they also got into boats and came to Capernaum, seeking Jesus. And when they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You come here?”

Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”

Then they said to Him, “What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?”

Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.”

Therefore they said to Him, “What sign will You perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will You do? Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ”

Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”

And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.

Believing in Jesus will not cause us to be hungry and thirsty, He said He is the bread from heaven and we should not labor for food that will perish but for food that endures forever. Earthly bread will go mold and decay but not Jesus who gives us life and an everlasting life as well.

In 2 Chronicles 20

We see Jehovah the provider blessing His children.

It happened after this that the people of Moab with the people of Ammon, and others with them besides the Ammonites, came to battle against Jehoshaphat. Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, “A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, from Syria; and they are in Hazazon Tamar” (which is En Gedi). And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. So Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord; and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord.
