He's Providing — so Rejoice!

Thursday, September 19, 2013 (9:01 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

Deut 16:15 Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.

Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles) started last night throughout the world. The feast of Sukkot commemorates the time in which God led the Israelites through the wilderness for 40 years, providing them with every need on a daily basis – shelter, food, water and clothing. Interestingly, during Sukkot, the book of Ecclesiastes is read in the synagogues– but Ecclesiastes speaks of the vanity of materialism.

How can we find a balance between feasting in God’s provision and wallowing in worldly materialism? The answer is simple.

If our focus lies on all of our abundance without acknowledging the Provider, then it is all vanity! But if our focus is on the Lord and His desire for our lives, then He provides us with all that is pure and holy.

Feast in the Lord for all that He has provided and enter into the season of Sukkot!

    Awesome balance!

  • Pastor Mark

    Nurturing a heart that recognizes God's abundance both in times of "prosperity" and "poverty" is so critical in developing a true understanding of His grace.  It is not until we can genuinely rejoice in what the world would consider "lack" that we can truly say we know God's provision (and not the churchy veneer of rejoicing, whining in a pious but pitiful voice "Woe is me, but at least I have God" nonsense).  He loves you, He died for you, if you're saved He resides in you… what more do you need?
