Daily devotional: Provision is from the Lord

Scripture
"The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people."
Zechariah 8:12 NIV

Observation
Provision is not just from our hard work. The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. He causes conditions to be suitable for generous provision, and He is also the One who grants intelligence, capabilities, and lines up circumstances for our benefit.

Application
Do not be stuck on myself for my intelligence or capabilities, but rather praise the Lord for providing for me.

Prayer
Heavenly Father, You are so awesome. May Your name be praised. May people across the earth acknowledge You as the One who provides for our needs. Thank you for not only blessing me with the ability to work, but also for providing the circumstances and actively working on my behalf that causes my generous provision. Thank you so much Jesus for saving me, for doing that which I could not do. I love you and am grateful to You.
