I welcome all of our friends on Zoom. Many of our partners of global hope India, and India are live on Zoom, some are watching on YouTube. But we are grateful for our partners. We’re grateful for our friends, many pastors, Christian leaders around the world. Here for today’s broadcast. I am excited to bring the Word of God to you today. It’s a short keynote. And I want to ask you, if you’re ready for the Word of God, we’re gonna dive right in. And so are you ready? Can we give the Lord a round of applause and just prepare our hearts and our minds for today’s word, God is ready to speak to us. If you have your Bibles, I encourage you to turn to Psalm 23. Turn to the to Psalm 23. You know this, but we’re talking about God is the provider. And I want you to hear how God has provided and is continuing to provide and how it’s recorded in Psalm 23. And so let’s look at this together. It says The Lord is my shepherd, he has provided a shepherd for you and a shepherd for me. I have all that I need David saying that you can proclaim that today as well.
We, I want to just encourage our team, we still have people in the waiting room. If we can let everybody in the waiting room that would be a great, greatly appreciated. I’m thankful for our team in the US and in India and in the Philippines. And we we want to make sure everybody gets into the broadcast. So please let everyone that’s in the waiting room. Come on in. Let’s continue with Psalm 23. I’m going to start back over it says The Lord is my shepherd. I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows. He leads me beside peaceful streams. I want you to hear how God is the provider and how he is providing. he renews my strength. You need strength this morning. You need strength this evening. He renews my strength. He guides me along right past last month we talked about God guides God provides and here David is saying He guides me But David’s also proclaiming he provides for me bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley David says I will not be afraid. Is there anyone afraid today anything causing you to be afraid to fear? God is providing courage providing strength. He says I will not be afraid for you are close beside me. The presence of God is one of the greatest provisions of God you will ever receive. Are you dwelling in the presence of God? Today? Tonight? It’s August the six are you dwelling in the month of August in the presence of God? It is an incredible provision. He says Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. Anyone got an enemy chasing them today? Anyone have a sense of spiritual warfare occurring in your life right now tonight or this morning? David says God provides victory not only just survival, but a feast in the presence of my enemies. He says you honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. Amen. Every statement is a proclamation of provision him from God. And I want you to open up your hands. And let’s pray over the word and over this message today, Heavenly Father, I thank you for my brothers and sisters around the world, these precious men and women of God, these spiritual leaders in the kingdom of God in the church around the world. Father, I thank you that you have committed to be their provider. And I thank you for this revelation you’ve given to me decades ago, when I was struggling to be my own provider, you came in and began to open up my eyes, that you are the provider, I pray that skills would come off of eyes as needed during this message that you would draw the people in from LinkedIn and Facebook and YouTube who need this encouraging word, this transformational word. And I pray that we would never live the same that we could live different as a result of being in your presence. And being in your word in Jesus name. Everyone said, A man, a man. Well, this is only a small glimpse in the Scripture, where God is the provider. And I am so excited to continue to just share with you some of God’s word on how he is the provider says, and Philippians four, verse 19.
Paul said, and the same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs, from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus, do you ever get tempted that God is only providing for some of your needs, but not all of your needs? I know life can be a challenge, you may be in a very hellacious situation right now where you are. But I want you to know you have been given a promise of the creator, the Savior, the Almighty God of the universe, that He will supply all your needs. And so if you have made for anything, and we’re going to talk about practical needs, needs that that money can address as well as needs that money cannot even buy. We’re going to talk about that. And I’m going to encourage you based upon the authority of God’s word, to cry out to God as your provider. It says in Scripture, that where God guides he provides, I hope you write that down, I hope that you will take this principle out of God’s Word and apply it to your life where God guides he provides. Last month we talked about God’s provision. This month, we’re talking about God’s provision. And I last month, we talked about God’s guidance. This month, we’re talking about God’s provision, where God guides he provides. So it’s necessary to seek the guidance of God as He guides you can be rest assured, he will provide sometimes in my past, I was stressed out about not having God’s provision. But now I look back and I see I never had God’s guidance. I thought it was something that God would ask me to do, that God wanted done. And it probably was, but he had not called me to do it. So I lacked the resources where God guides he provides it also means when it’s God’s will, it’s God’s Bill, you can rest on that, if you will seek the will of God, you will have the provision of God, because where it’s God’s will, it’s God’s build. We can also understand that where the will of God takes you, the grace of God will keep you I want you to hear the Spirit of God as He, as he puts this into your spirit, that the will of God will not take you where the grace of God will not keep you. So make sure that you’re seeking God’s guidance for his will. And no matter what the circumstances are, if you know you’re in the center of God’s will, His provision is there to keep you there. And so rest in the provision of guy, let’s continue.
So the final principle I want you to understand is that the vision of God recall, I’m sorry, the final principle I want you to understand is that the mission of God requires the provision of God, I want you to think of the miracle of the feeding of the multitude 15,000 people needed to eat, all the disciples could come up with the best that man could come up with was two small fish, and five barley loaves. That is a miracle in the Bible to illustrate the the need of the Great Commission being fulfilled in 2021 3 billion people still need access to know about Jesus, you don’t have the resources, I don’t have the resources, the mission of God requires the provision of God, you and I need to understand that otherwise, we will get burned out, we will get stressed out, we’ll get frustrated. That’s exactly where the enemy wants us because it will block our worship. You can’t be angry at God and be praising God simultaneously, we’ve got to maintain a thankful attitude toward God. Now, anger happens. Sometimes we need to take our anger to God. But you need to understand it should always result in worship. And so I want you to hear how the mission of God requires the provision of God. And this is a truth. Jesus said, You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. The truth is, you are not expected to have what it takes. God has never in his word said, I’m creating the world. I’m creating a mission. I’m creating you now you are responsible. I’m holding you responsible to have what it takes, you’ll never find that in the Word of God. God has provided to sustain his creation, God has provided to fulfill His mission. You and I are invited to join God in that work. But we have never been charged to have what it takes. The truth is you do not have I do not have what it takes. And that is a provision of God. The government is on his shoulders, it is not on your shoulders, it is not on my shoulders. We need provision for life, for family, for church, for school. For business, we need God’s provision for finances, for health, for conversations, for conflicts in our lives for the future, we are in desperate need of God’s provision. The reality is
we you will never graduate from your need for God’s provision. God’s more is always more of himself and more for himself. So he wants you to ask for more. But as I wrote about in my book, audacious generosity, God’s more is always more for himself more of himself. That’s the more that he wants you and I to expect to ask for to receive more for himself more of himself. I want to do a quick study with you on the names of God, because according to the Bible, God’s name is provider, and you and I will question the character of God if we don’t know the name and identity of God. So let’s just do a really quick study. Give me five minutes to just walk you through what God’s name is. In the Bible. You probably know this, but it’s a reminder for me, it’s a reminder for you Elohim is ruler use almost 2600 times in the Bible, your way means Lord Jehovah master use over 6500 times in the Bible. L L. Yan is the most high God use 52 times in the Bible. El Shaddai Lord God Almighty provider Use 48 times in the Word of God. L. As you can see, many of God’s names begin with L. And this is the meaning of L is provider supplying nourishing, satisfying his people with their needs as a mother would her child, God, our Sustainer. So when you see El Shaddai el el yawn, you’re literally getting the name provider of God should die means absolute power. So you put the provider and power together in the name, El Shaddai. This describes God as the one who triumphs over every obstacle, and all opposition. Can I get an amen? Can someone please shout hallelujah. So put the El Shaddai together provider and powerful God is our all powerful and all sufficient Sustainer he goes on El Olam, the everlasting God, unchangeable. The God you read about in Genesis one is the same God all the way through the book of Revelation. And in 2021, he is L O Lamb. He is Jehovah Jireh the Lord will provide not only is he a provider, the his name, his name means the Lord will provide. You can’t start a prayer dear guy, without beckoning the provider. That’s incredible comfort. That’s why David can write Psalm 23 And you can dwell in the house of the Lord and I can dwell in the house of the Lord because He is Jehovah Jireh Look at Genesis chapter 22 Verse 14, Abraham named a place Yawei Yara, which means The LORD Will Provide that’s where we get Jehovah Jireh to this day, people still use that name. As a proverb on the mountain of the Lord it will be provided so I want you to make this connection God’s name is provider. God’s name is the promise to provide you and I need to understand the name of God He has promised to provide. Look at look at
number eight here, Jehovah Rafa, the Lord who heals you, you need provision of healing. That’s a provision of God, his name is the provider of your healing. It’s used in Exodus 15, verse 26, Jehovah Nissi, The Lord is my banner, my victory. It’s used in Exodus 17. So if you need victory, call on the Lord. His name is your banner. It’s victory. L cannon. jealous god you six times Jehovah, Mecca, dosa Kim. I’m going to butcher that one sorry, but it it means the Lord who sanctifies you makes you holy makes you righteous. There’s nothing good in me apart from Jesus. And that’s true of you as well. There’s nothing good in any of us apart from Jesus, and the righteousness of the only hope we have of God’s righteousness is for God to provide it. We’re in desperate need of God’s provision. Jehovah Salam, the Lord is peace. Use one time in the Scripture. Jehovah Sabbath, the Lord of hosts of armies use 240 285 times Jehovah rah. The Lord is my shepherd us four times. God is a friend who provides extravagant nourishment, protection, as well as rest for Riri bodies and souls. That is his name. His name is also Jehovah tisc Keanu Teskey Do the Lord our Righteousness, justice, prosperity, use two times, waiting. Jehovah shaman, the Lord is there present, past future God is there, use the zero zekiel. So to introduce God to someone is to introduce your provider. When you and I pray, Dear Jesus, or pray, Holy Father, we are introducing the presence of God we’re doing, we are introducing the provider to welcome God is to welcome your provider. So, I have a question. Why do you and I sometimes live as if we are the provider? Why do I live sometimes as if I am the provider? Why do you live as if sometimes you are the provider, we pray regularly to God. And every time we say his name, we are calling the provider. I have a good friend here in North Carolina, a Indian chef, he is referred to a chef Gamar. And I go to his restaurants sometimes imagine me being in his restaurant, and I call him chef. So I say Hello, Chef, I welcome him. And then I sit there with insecurity, wondering if I’m going to eat that day. I’m sitting with Chef Gamar. He is a award winning chef. And I’m wondering if I’m going to eat, sometimes we do that to guy, we have welcomed him, we have called to him, we have prayed to him. And then we live insecure, as if we wonder if he is going to provide for us to call on the name of God is to call on your provider. So God is provider, but I need you to get this into your spirit only God provides. Sometimes we are tempted to believe that we are the provider of our families. The Word of God vetoes that and says You are under the provider. Sometimes we think we are the provider for our churches, we are the provider for the people who are sick. We are the provider for the orphans, you can fill in the blank wherever life has taken you. And you get tempted to think that you are one of God’s many providers, but the Bible
institutes that there is one provider and his name is Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ, and only God provides only God provides. And you and I will experience the benefit of God’s provisions when we understand that there’s only one universal provider, Almighty God. The reason people far from God need to be raised to life in Christ is so that they will have the provider Almighty God in their life. God provides the many things money can buy food, clothing, housing, utilities, furniture, money can provide transportation, education, health care, the phone bill, sanitation, all of those are provisions from God that money can provide. But fortunately, our provider is not just capable of providing what money can provide. He can provide what money can not provide peace. Power, happiness, joy, love. These are things money can’t buy significance, security, acceptance, worthiness, humility, those are gifts from God Money cannot buy. You can have no rupees and still have this no dollars and still have this you You can have billions of dollars and rupees and pesos, and still lack this, because only God can provide the things that money can’t buy. God’s guidance. Last month, we talked about how God guides and we looked at how God’s guidance brings clarity. Well, today I want you to understand the major benefit of God’s provision is rest. God’s provision brings rest. So I want to ask you, are you characterized by resting? We looked at how his name is the Lord of the Sabbath. Sabbath means stop. We are called to repent. Sometimes we think repentance is from smoking and drinking and cussing, and murdering and committing adultery, and stealing. And yes, we need to repent of all sin. But you you know, that in order to really grasp God as provider, you have got to stop. Jesus said, Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burden and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Jesus is literally saying, all you who are busy trying to provide for yourselves, I’m asking you to stop. So I can give you rest. Will you stop? Depending on yourself? Will you stop trying to be your own provider? Will you stop trying to be the provider for everyone else? And will you rest is your life characterized by wrist we looked last month at clarity is the evidence of having been in the presence of God this month, I want you to understand that rest is the evidence that you have been in God’s presence. Shame on us if we dwell in the house of the Lord, full of anxiety, stressed out burned out, full of compassion burnout, when rest is the evidence of having been in the presence of God, He wants us to come into His presence to be filled with his presence so that we will have the confidence to stop
to cease from our labor to cease from trying to bear fruit apart from him to stop. Do you Honor the Sabbath? Is there a day of the week that you stop? And are you living in the the Lord of the Sabbath? Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, the Sabbath is not a day of the week, the Sabbath is Almighty God. He is Lord of the Sabbath. And so is your life characterized by rest? Yes, you can be busy for the Lord. You can go without sleep because of an assignment from God. You can work from sunrise to sunset and your bones be tired. There’s nothing wrong. I’m not judging. I’m not condemning. But even in the midst of busyness that God has appointed for you, you can be at rest 100% at peace. Yes, your bones may be tired, but you can. You can be at rest knowing that God is your provider, knowing that God has promised to meet all of your needs. You’re not working frantically trying to provide you’re joining God in his work. There’s a big difference. I know from personal experience the misery of trying to be my own provider of thinking, if it is to be it’s up to me. And I know the hellacious nights that come from working 60 hour weeks, 70 hour weeks, 80 hours weeks, because I was not resting. My life was characterized by anything, but rest is your life characterized by rest. Look at Exodus 33 Verse 14, The Lord replied, I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest when you dwell in the house of the Lord, when you walk When you wake up tomorrow morning, and you go out into your day, in the presence of God, with the presence of God with you, you can go out resting. Because you know, you’ve got the provider with you 11am The providers right here with me 1pm Here’s the provider 3pm, hallelujah, welcome provider 5pm, the provider will provide 7pm my provider is right here by my side, you don’t have to be the provider. You don’t have to work. Yes, you obey the Lord and you join him in his work. But you have the provider, imagine me going in to Chef’s restaurant, and I am trying to do all the cooking, he’s an award winning chef, I don’t sit down and just enjoy his food. But I but I deny that he’s, he’s willing as a friend to feed me. But I deny that and I go to the kitchen, and I’m working so hard trying to provide for my next meal. When it’s right there on the table. Some of us are not experiencing this face in the presence of our enemies, because we go by the Lord’s presence. And we get busy trying to be the provider that God has already promised to be to you and I I want to pray for you.
And I hope that this has been a reinforcement of what God’s already been showing you. If you’ve been a believer for decades, I hope you learn this long before I did. If you’re not yet a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, your greatest provision from God is to receive his presence by repenting of your sin and asking Jesus to forgive you. Recognizing that it’s his life, and his death on the cross that gives you life. And you’ll never know the provider until you submit to Him in the provision of your spiritual life being forgiven of your sins. I want to pray right now. We have friends on zoom all across the United States and India, Uganda, the Philippines, Thailand, we have friends on YouTube and Facebook and LinkedIn. And I just encourage you right now when you lift up your hands to the provider, as I pray over you, and I know many of you have needs right now, many of you know people that are sick, I had sisters, and others that messaged me before this broadcast once in the hospital. The other one has severe back pain I know we have needs right now for healing. There are many people asking for financial help who have financial problems and challenges and pay in school bills for their children and building church buildings. And the list goes on and on and on. I know pastors that need transportation. And I know people who who have no peace in their life, who desperately need to come to God through Jesus Christ and repent of their sins and take salvation from the Lord. And so hold your hands up and let us pray. Heavenly Father, I thank you for this opportunity to pray with brothers and sisters leaders around the world. And I just pray thanking you that you’re never present help in time of me, father COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc around the world, as many people are sick, many people are testing positive. Many people are in the hospital. And I just pray for grace and for mercy and healing. I thank you for vaccines. And I pray that, that people will have access to these vaccines. Father, I pray Father that that the developing world would have access to vaccines. But more importantly, I pray that everyone would have access to know about Jesus to know that they don’t have to be their own provider, that they don’t have to be religious when they can be in a relationship with Almighty God through Jesus Christ. So I asked you that this would be the day of salvation, that people even right now would repent of their sin and trust Jesus alone for salvation. Father, thank You that You sent your one and only Son water provision that he died on the cross for Assam water provision that we might have life and abundant life, what a provision. So let this be the day of salvation. Let people be baptized, let Bibles be distributed, let pastors be trained let churches be planted. Father, I pray in the name of Jesus for every person under the sound of my voice watching right now and as well as in the future. that every need that they have would be met. Father, let there be a period of West a season of rest that we would stop from our weirdness stop from from trying to bear fruit apart from you and that we would rest. Father, I pray that you would provide the automobiles needed that you would provide the church buildings needed the groceries needing bother even right now there are people who are watching this broadcast, and they don’t even know where Tonight’s dinner is going to come from. But your word says it you are the provider. So I asked you to feed them in the name of Jesus sin coins out of the fish’s mouth, if that’s what it takes. Let there be miracles upon miracles as we read about in your word. We believe that you are who you say you are, and you will do what you say you will do. So I asked you to be your name to be Almighty God, Lord, Jehovah, El Shaddai. I pray and commit all these needs to you in Jesus name. Amen. Amen. Hallelujah. So I want to ask you if the Lord has spoke to you, this video will be on
YouTube. It’ll be on Facebook, it’ll be on LinkedIn, will you please share it? Will you please allow this word of God to encourage people around the world by just sharing it.

And in this book, God declares one of the many things he he reinforces is God speaks and you are not deaf.
