This morning, I hear Tara-Leigh Cobble mention something in her reflection on the sacrifices to the Lord in the book of Numbers. It’s simple. She says, “He provides all that He requires of us.” How wonderful! There’s nothing God will ask from us that He doesn’t also give us the grace, power, or provision to accomplish.
I’ve heard statements like this before. When I was a Young Life leader in college, I heard a talk where someone said, “God doesn’t call the equipped; He equips those He calls.” I loved that!
When Cobble states how God provides whatever He requires of us, I found myself experiencing peace and hope. I remembered 2 Corinthians 9:8 where Paul writes this:
And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
God will give us what we need for the work He asks of us.
