Memory Verse: “The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” – Psalm 23:1

God supplies our needs:
God’s provision is like a shepherd caring for his sheep, ensuring they have everything they need. Remember, just as a shepherd takes care of the sheep, God takes care of us. In Psalm 23, we learned that God is our provider, and we lack nothing when we trust in Him.

Real-life examples that depict God’s Provision:

  1. Good Health: Recall moments when you or someone regained good health, showing God’s care and healing.
  2. Safety: Think about times when you were kept safe from harm or danger, feeling God’s protection.
  3. Favour and Blessings: Consider instances where unexpected good things happened, indicating God’s favour and blessings.
  4. Guidance when Lost: Reflect on times when you felt lost or confused but received direction or help, showing God’s guidance and support.
  5. Think about a time when you or someone you know experienced a need, and somehow, things worked out for the best.
  6. Consider moments when you felt cared for, protected, or provided for, even in small ways.
  7. Reflect on how God has been present in your life, supplying what you need.

These examples show that God’s provision extends to various aspects of life, including health, safety, blessings, and guidance. As you journey through life, remember to trust in God, knowing that He continually provides in different ways.
