”Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths."Proverbs 3:5-6
This week’s Church Planting Movement principle is: Trust God for Provision. In 2 Corinthians 9:8, we read: “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” God IS THE Provider. God is provision. God is the source of all you are and have. All things are held in God and come from God. Even things that go against natural law are no problem for God. Even if what we may need does not currently exist, that’s no problem for God since He created everything with His spoken word--He can simply speak and whatever we need would come. He can even override natural laws--ie., Joshua asking the sun to stand still, Jesus walking on water, Philip being transported from one place to another. This week pray that disciple makers will live by faith, believing that when they seek first to advance God’s Kingdom and His righteousness, He will abundantly provide all they need. Ask God to fill your mouth with words in all you do so that your words will fall on receptive ears. Ask God to open the ears of those you go to speak to so that they can hear Him speaking through you.
Ask God this week to give everyone involved in church planting movements a sense of their connectedness to the family of Christ as children of God. Practice listening to Holy Spirit daily for where He is sending you to prepare His way.
