With inflation surging through each country and everyone feeling the pressure, let’s not forget to give God thanks for His continual provision.
For it was when Jesus gave thanks to God for the food that they had, perfect provision was made for what the people needed and desired. Truly, God is our source for provision. He is Jehovah Jireh.
Only God’s riches are endless. Everyone on earth has a limit. God alone can provide for every need and desire.
Jesus is the well- everlasting and He says in John 4, if you only knew the gift God has for you, you’d ask the Giver.
So, today, with what is before you, as you are meeting needs and taking care of those around you feeling the pressure of increasing costs – seek God first, giving thanks unto Him, trusting Him for the abundance you need.
In this unstable world, we do not look to what’s around us for stability or sustenance, we look to Christ in His word; believing Him in faith. We live with our eyes focused on Jesus Christ, not on the world and it’s inconsistency; for He is our God and our constant source of stability and consistency. Our nourishment comes from doing the will of the Father, and from finishing His work.
Abba, thank You for Your perfect provision. May we be wise stewards with what You have blessed us with and called us to accomplish in Your name. Please give us wisdom for what is before us.

Revival of the Hearts
Do you desire revival in your own personal life and in those around you?
Truly, a genuine desire for Jesus Christ ignites revival in a heart and mind – it’s a life hungering and thirsting for righteousness.
This book, Revival of the Hearts, is a quick in-depth look at 2 Chronicles 7:14 NKJV, where God says, “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
A timeless truth from God aimed at His own who have turned away from Him, or who will turn from Him at some point in time. For every sin we commit turns us subtly away. But God in His merciful grace, forgives the repentant sinner. It’s a promise. Not an outlet to sin, simply to receive His grace; but a road traveled by many in humble repentance.
2 Chronicles 7:14 is an amazing, timeless verse in the Old Testament that speaks to us today regarding revival in our own heart, and in those around us.
In these ten chapters, VanderWeerd breaks down the truths God declares in 2 Chronicles 7:14; providing a quick in-depth look into Scripture, helping readers gain a richer understanding of God’s word and how to live it out in their personal lives. This book is great for personal study or for a group bible study, with questions for discussion at the end of each chapter.
