Today I am going to talk about the Father’s provision.
2 Corinthians 12:14
14 Now I am ready to visit you for the third time,and I will not be a burden to you, because what I want is not your possessions but you. After all, children should not have to save up for their parents, but parents for their children.
I am calling your attention to the last part, it says.
Children should not have to save for their parents but parents for their children.
It is a parental duty for parents to save up something for the children, By natural instinct parents usually do that. The bible urges the parents to leave something for the children, for the future of their children.
This is true with God also, God is our father and it is his parental duty to provide things for us.
17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
The first fatherly responsibility is to provide something for the future of the children.
Secondly, the father gives a share of his inheritance to the children.
If a father has a lot of property, jewellery, inheritance he will divide between his children and will not give more to one and less to another.
All the children of a rich father will also be rich.
God is a father who wants to give us inheritance, many children of God don’t know what they received as inheritance in future , because of that they are short sighted they only see the things of this world.
Paul had great revelation of the sons of God, the inheritance of the sons Of God and heirship of the sons Of God.
We can get that Revelation from Paul so that we get a glimpse of our future.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,
So we all became sons and daughters of God through faith.
5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts,the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
This is the truth that will deliver you, this will set you free, you may achieve many things in this world where you may not achieve many things in this world that doesn’t matter because when you are a child of God you get all the positions and riches of your Father.
This Revelation will liberate you.
Sometimes you may think that you have gone through injustice in your own family, because another inheritance is waiting for you up above
You are no longer slaves but a son.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.
This shows how careful God is about a tiny bird as well. That is the carefulness of God!
Jesus is applying the same carefulness upon his children here:
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
Jesus is talking about the basic necessities of life.
Sometimes we doubt whether a future will be secured or not but Jesus asks us not to worry about anything because our life is greater than clothes or food.
Then Jesus immediately takes our attention to verse number 26.
God doesn’t even leave Birds then what are we?
In Matthew chapter 10 Jesus speaking about sparrows says that the Sparrow is very cheap to buy in the market but God is very mindful of each and everyone of them.
Jesus says look at the birds they are experiencing direct care from the father and they don’t know how to worry.
We humans keep worrying about so many things but Jesus said look at the birds.
No human being worries about birds but Jesus says your Heavenly Father feeds them.
These words may be short lived. When your Heavenly Father is mindful about these birds how much more does he care about you!!!
What is your value?
Your value is the value of the blood of Jesus.
You and me are purchased by the blood of Jesus.
We are not purchased by silver or gold coins but by Jesus, with the blood of Jesus!!
