Michelle Anthony – God is provider
How is God provider in your life? We tend to think of God as provider by the thing he provides.
We focus so much on the provision we lose sight of God as provider.
When I look at the need – Where I am lacking that produces in my an anxiety.
I focus on the provision itself – What happens when it doesn’t come through in the way I am hoping it will.
When we focus on the need we forget about the story of what God is doing in the midst of provision. God is trying to show us who is his through the story he is writing.
What God is doing is far more important than what God gives.
John 2.1 – 11
On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. 2 Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. 3 When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” 4 And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” 6 Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. 9 When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom 10 and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.
