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!”

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.
