Orientation Toward God’s Provision

Orientation toward God’s provisions of the Cross is an important understanding to have in your frame of reference. This means a total focus of the soul on the person of Christ and Him crucified. In Genesis 22, Abraham was oriented to God’s provision – a ram caught in the thicket was a beautiful picture of Christ whose mind was always toward becoming the representative man (2), the substitute (3); (4); (5), and the mediator of a better covenant (6). Abraham realized a wonderful revelation of God and called Him Jehovah-jireh, “the Lord will see to it.”

Once the believer sees God’s eternal provision in the Cross, he is also able to perceive that God will “see to” all things. He becomes oriented to God’s provision in all ways – spiritually and materially (7); (8); (9). He knows what God’s provisions are and he patiently waits for them. Paul illustrated this capacity of the soul in Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” Orient yourself to God’s provision and you will never be found in need of anything.
