21 Bible Verses About God’s Provision

by Daryl Evans · Print Print · Email Email

The word of God is full of inspiring assurances of how God will provide for his followers. God is fully aware of our needs and the Bible tells us of how God wants us to come to him with every need and care and worry that we may have. We often turn to God for our physical needs but many (this writer included) fall short in asking God and seeking his provision for our spiritual and emotional needs. We must remember that when our focus is on God, and when our worldview about God shows that we believe that he is interested and cares about every area of our life; then we are starting to be in the place that God desires for us. That place will be where we talk constantly to God and listen for him to speak to us. There are many, many verses that speak about God’s provision for us. Here is a sampling, just 21 Bible verses about God’s provision for you to read and meditate on.

Luke 12:24 “Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!”

Bible Verses About God’s Provision

Genesis 3:21  And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.

Genesis 9:3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.

Exodus 14:22 And the people of Israel went into the midst of the sea on dry ground, the waters beinga wall to them on their right hand and on their left.

Job 38:41 Who provides for the raven its prey, when its young ones cry to God for help, and wander about for lack of food?

Psalms 34:10 The young lions suffer want and hunger; but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.

Psalms 81:10 I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

Psalms 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin

Matthew 6:31-32 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

Bible Quotes About Asking God For Our Needs

Matthew 7:7  Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 7:11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Matthew 21:22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.”

John 14:13-14 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask meanything in my name, I will do it.

John 15:7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

John 16:23-24 In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

Romans 8:32 He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?

James 4:1-2  What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passionsare at war within you? You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask.

1 John 3:22 and whatever we ask we receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.

Final Thoughts 

One of the main impressions that I thought on while writing this article is the picture and feeling that I get as God being our true Heavenly Father. The words of Scripture paint this beautiful picture of God loving us so much that he will provide for us in all areas of life. God will take care of you just like he takes care of the lilies of the field. God is the best Father ever and He knows what our needs are and what our wants are. Sometimes, we get these two mixed up but we truly can trust God. Maybe you came to this article because you are in a bad stage of life where you just don’t know where to turn. Maybe you are in over your head financially or emotionally or spiritually. Maybe you feel that you are in it all alone. I hope that reading through some of these Scripture passages encourages you that God knows what is going on in your life and He will provide for you. We don’t always know how that will happen and there are situations that seem hopeless but the Lord God is a big God and He is still in the business of making beautiful things out of our messes. My prayer for you today is that you pray and talk to God about whatever you are going through. He loves His children and He has made promises that He will always be with us regardless of what we are going through.

I am very blessed by these Scriptures. I’m putting them into flashcards and will be meditating on them. thank you!


Emiliana Martín July 18, 2015 at 6:30 pm

This is exactly what I need to jump start my study on His provision for me. I’ve been incredibly angry with God because despite doing my footwork and putting myself out there, I still cannot get approved for buying a much-needed car. I’m counting on Him but where is He?

Best for me to stick my nose back in His Word and get back to basics. I need to improve my prayer walk so I can be a more effective intercessory missionary. If I can’t intercede for myself, then how much less effective am I for the kingdom?

Thanks for your verses. They are right on time and truly perfect for me right now.


shile October 28, 2015 at 9:25 pm

Wow! I am so happy and blessed to have read these scriptures. They were so encouraging. Thank you and may God continue to bless you


Agnes March 17, 2016 at 11:55 pm

Amen! God is concerned about every detail of our lives. I always thought of just asking for the “little things” and kind of scared to ask for bigger? Yes He loves us that He is concerned about the big things also. He is a good and perfect Father. He knows we need these things and He knows what is best for us. He won’t give us anything that will mess up our relationship with Him. Awesome article! Came just in time…Gods perfect timing!


Michael Green April 9, 2016 at 1:49 pm

God says, ‘what I did then I would do today. Then, to learn Him and have relationship Eve and Adam conversed with Jehovah Jirra. Today, reason peeps don’t want to put in work and sacrifice; which lifestyle of prayer requires. Meaning some rely on visibly lifeless and motionless book. Under romans 1:20 Man in charge tells the reader He doesn’t like excuses. If you try and say but there’s reason. When if God wanted to, poof holy bible is but as it reads, after the forbidden fruit and many years, decades or maybe centuries afterwards; to know peeps conversed. ‘What I did then I would do today,’ are God’s words.


Solanch May 4, 2016 at 5:30 am

this is just what i needed at this moment of my life. Thanks a million and may God grant you more grace and inspirations.


Russel Arceo July 14, 2016 at 4:27 am

Thanks be to God for these stuff,, actually,, I am in the midst of situation that I don’t know where to turn.. And I asked him for the guidance last, what shall I do Lord?.. I lose my work in the Philippines in grabbing the opportunity to work in this Country.. and I believed He had provided everything for me to came on this land. But unfortunately, I’ve lose again my job here it is because of undetermined implementation of management.

But instead of murmuring or complaining and feeling abandoned. Just filled me out by your grace and thanks for his faithfulness in his words or promises


Saul Hinojos July 28, 2016 at 1:45 pm

God Bless you all. I was truly encouraged by these verses. it has stirred up my faith to continue to believe in God for a miracle. something in me just went to a rest and peace. I know everything is going to be ok. We serve a loving Father full of goodness and provision in his hands.


Matthew McAllum August 6, 2016 at 2:23 am

El Shaddai, you provide


Autumn Conley January 6, 2017 at 9:13 am

Thank you for this. I struggle a great deal financially, and today, in the dawn of a new year that I hoped would be easier, a job I was expecting but did not get means that I am $480 short on my rent five days past the date it is due. I am a single mother, and I am so worried that my very patient and kind landlord is going to lose his patience; I wouldn’t blame him, because for the majority of 2016, my rent was late almost every month. I am a Christian and have tried to turn to God through all the ups and downs of life, and God rescued me from at least two prodigal wanderings. God also gave me the ability to start my own business, which I’ve been working hard at since 2009, but I am very frightened right now, so I googled “Bible Verses provisions” to strengthen and comfort me while I work. Every time an anxiety wafts through my brain about the rent, I get sick to my stomach, but I click over to this post and read a few of the verses over again. That does little to bring me the $480 I urgently need, but it does comfort my soul to remind myself that my Father owns it all and has always and will provide for me and my daughter. Thank you for being a comfort by posting these things my spirit knows but my worries quickly forget.

Thank you for posting these scripture verses. God bless you.


Teresa April 22, 2017 at 3:33 pm

I am a single mother of two girls. God has always been there for us. I am standing on his promises that he will bring my mortgage current, car payment current , home owners association dues to a $0 balance. It’s like an emotional roller coaster with worrying about bills and how I will feed my children. I know I do not serve a God that wants to barely make it each day. I am going to continue to believe, believe, believe and believe in his word and promises for me.


Esther May 4, 2017 at 3:32 am

Hmmmmmm. What a word!!!! Thank you writer, God bless you richly.

Feli July 22, 2017 at 10:52 pm

I am at the point of my life when I need uplifting in my spiritual, financial and emotional life. these scriptures have renewed my faith and strengthened me enormously. Glory be to God for his mighty works!


Amanda Wheat September 13, 2017 at 12:20 pm

I desperately needed these verses today. I prayed these scriptures aloud back to God and proclaimed that I’m standing on these promises in His living word. My husband was laid off in Dec 2016 and has been unable to find a job. I’m on SS disability (I’ve been disabled since I was 25 so it’s not much money at all). My mother in law lives with us and depends on us because she’s very ill. For 8 months God has provided. This month has been difficult. Our electricity was disconnected for 4 days (and it was HOT) and we are now 7 days past due on rent. Our landlord has threatened to go file for eviction. These verses renewed my faith in my Father’s provision for my family. Thank you.


Jack Wellman September 13, 2017 at 2:41 pm

Praying for you right now Amanda.


Jacqueline Hall September 27, 2017 at 4:48 pm

Praying for Amanda and for all who have needs to be met! God provides. I ask for prayer on my behalf for the approval and finances needed for the deposit for a 2 bedroom apartment I recently viewed and looks sufficient for my needs. I ask God to decide if it is in his will as he truly knows what is best for us to move into. So I am letting go and letting God. Thank you.


Melinda November 28, 2017 at 11:27 am

Thank you so much I know that God will provide. I was praying in the back for our church family. I pray for my husband and I, our little family we have left and we pray for addictions, financial, employment, healing and others to be restored to God. We also pray for our broken sick community here that has become a huge cesspool of homelessness. I kept hearing the Holy Spirit prompt me about promise of provision through our Lord. I realized he has provisional promises over our lives but we must believe and have faith that he will provide. It’s confirmed in the word of God and is given to us by the Holy Spirit.


Felicia December 28, 2017 at 12:57 am
