MY DECREE FOR PROVISION

It is finished.

Excerpt from the book 30 Days to Peace, Provision and Protection by Anika Janelle Pettiford.

God’s hand of provision is woven throughout the entire canon of scripture. In the New Testament, we see Jesus’s first miracle of turning water into wine to provide for a wedding and then we see Him multiplying fishes and loaves to feed a hungry congregation. The Father knows we have need of provision. We catch a glimpse of the way God provides by looking at the birds of the air.

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Matthew 6:26-30 NIV

Our right to these promises are based on one thing – our right to call the Almighty our Heavenly Father. We are reconciled to God through Christ by the cross. After declaring that His work was finished, Jesus died and rose again on the third day. He then ascended to the Father to present His sacrifice. But before He did that, He stopped to comfort Mary Magdalene and gave Her the assurance that a shift had occurred. A shift to where God is now our heavenly Father, “Jesus said, “Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'” John 20:17 NIV. This transference of sonship affords us all the benefits of divine provision in a world cursed by sin. Our provision is sealed and paid for. Let us rest from worry and declare – “It is finished!”
