God is a provider. We see it over and over again. From the genesis of creation, God has been the source to His people. He wants to sustain us with our earthly needs, but what He longs for most is our hearts. He wants our worship—our dependency and recognition of the source of our provision.

The truth is, God is in it all. He is in the supernatural provision, and the ordinary worked-hard-for provision. He is there. The Word tells us all good things come from Him (James 1:17). Be intentional about thanking Him even in times when you feel strapped, or in need. He who promised is certainly faithful. Recognize His fruitful hand, don’t fear praying for supernatural provision, and work at that thing He has placed before you with all your might.
