God provides!!!!!

If you want to grow in your faith in God, ADOPT!!! I cannot tell you enough how through this process, God has provided us with EXACTLY what we need to make this happen. And the funny thing is, I'm shocked!!! I am sooo lacking in faith that I am continually shocked at how He is graciously providing for this baby that we don't even know yet! It feels like nothing short of a miracle to me at times! And He has done it through using His people here on earth in soooo many ways. We keep getting the encouragement we need, the strength, the finances, the peace, the contentment, the love, the reassurance, and I could go on and on at how He is providing for us! So it got me thinking about how he tells us in His word about how He will provide.....
He provided the ram for Abraham in Genesis. In I Corinthians 10:13 we read how He will provide a way of escape from temptation. In Psalm 68:10 we read of how God provides for the poor and in 111 he provides redemption for His people. Also in Psalms He provides food for those who fear Him. In Jonah he provided a great fish to swallow Jonah and keep him safe and He again provided a vine to protect Jonah from the sun. In Hebrews we see how Jesus provided purification of sins. And I Timothy 6:17 pretty much sums it up for me: ...but to put their hope in God who RICHLY provides us with everything for our enjoyment! And there are obviously soooo many other times He provided for His people in the Bible and He continues to do that today!!! I want to be one of those people He uses to "provide" something for someone in need! What about you?
