Prophetic Word About God’s Provision

Prophetic Word about God's Provision | By Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.comOnce upon a time, I was teaching my LifeGroup at the church I attended. We were studying through A.W. Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy and talking about high views of God versus low views of God.

At one point, I felt led to ask everyone in class to bow their head, and we asked the Holy Spirit to show us any way that we, as individuals, are thinking low thoughts about God (and seeing or perceiving Him in a low, unworthy-of-Him way).

When I bowed my head, I heard the Holy Spirit say to me: “You still don’t have a handle on My provision.”

I was floored … because I rely on God to provide all the time. And He does. He always has, and He has always blessed me. I’m blessed right now! Therefore, I have felt for years that I did actually have a decent handle on understanding God’s provision.

But He said I didn’t. He said I had a low view of Him in that area.

Then He went on to tell me that He was going to show me by experience what His provision really looks like as I pray radical, big prayers.

(Gloreh!)

I have to confess that my prayers haven’t been that radical or big when it comes to God’s provision.

I’ve had enough faith to see the job get done and needs met whenever there is a need, but I haven’t been praying crazy prayers or believing with outrageous faith in this area.

I’ve been satisfied with “enough” … but that’s not what Papa God wants for me. And it’s not what He wants for you.

Beloved, Papa is showing me that He wants us to pray and ask Him to provide far above and beyond what we could ever ask, hope, or think.

This is, after all, what the Bible says. Deuteronomy 28:4-13, for example, says:

Start-quoteBlessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.

The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways. Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.

And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.

The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.

And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.”

Did you get that? I’m pretty sure that God said in that passage that we should be lending to NATIONS. And never borrowing.

I’m pretty sure He said that everything we put our hand to will be blessed.

And I’m positive that He said we should be ABOVE ONLY … and that all of our businesses, investments, etc will INCREASE.

And even though I’m blessed and grateful for it, I’m not lending to any nations yet. Are you? Also, my husband and I have a mortgage on our home. Do you?

But PAPA GOD says that His provision will increase us and bless us so much that we shall NEVER have to borrow. And we shall have plenty left over–such that “ALL PEOPLES OF THE EARTH” shall see His blessings and provision in our lives.

And all I can say is:

Father God, I want that kind of provision. I want to know You like that.

Don’t you?

Beloved, I’m not going to end this blog post with a model prayer like I often do. I don’t feel led to do that. I think this is one that you and I have to get alone before God about, and hash it out in faith before Him–standing on His Word.

I think this is an issue where we have to get the Book out, hold it up to Him, and point at it while staring at God insistently …

… for as long as it takes to build the faith in our own hearts that we need, and also to build our willingness to pray prayers that are as big as Father wants them to be.

But I will tell you, what God says to one, He says to another. (Read 2 Corinthians 1 for more about that.) If He spoke this word to encourage, grow, and challenge me, He’s speaking it to you too.

So do you also have a low view of God’s provision–a low view of His very nature as Provider and Source?

If so, it’s time to get alone with Him and hash this out. It’s time to press into Him and pray prayers that are worthy of Who He is. It’s time to insist that He provide as greatly, abundantly, and big-ly (I know that’s not a word, but work with me here) as He promised He would (and said He wants to) in the Bible.

Are you with me or are you with me? If the Holy Spirit is quickening this message in your heart too, please leave a comment below!

    WOW -WOW and Wow … I am so grateful to the Lord for this word on this morning! Jamie, I often look at the things around me and say , God can but this morning the Holy Spirit spoke loud and clear! As a minister of the gospel I see we must remind God’s people about the Lord we serve will do what we ask in Jesus Name!! This means nothing is impossible — I declare the overflow over your ministry and family — thank you for your words of encouragement!! Whew!! Just powerful!!

    1. Thank you so much for your encouragement, Shaunna. Oh, our Papa needs us to believe big. He wants to do so much for us, if only we believe that He does.

      1. Thank you so much for allowing God to use you in such a mighty way. It is alway a confirmation to what I have said to God for myself or what the Lord has me minister to someone else.

  2. Jamie,

    Thank you. Going to hash this out with Daddy now.

    Love,

    DEW

    1. Dee, thank you for reading, as always. I’m still in the depths of spiritual labor for this too. For a heart change. To dream and think as pleasing unto God. Papa, help.

  3. Thank you! I’ve been working on praying God sized prayers, instead of me sized prayers. Trying to let God out of my little box I keep him in. We are paycheck to paycheck people, and I am grateful to God for all our blessings, but I’ve been feeling He wants me to believe and ask for more! Timely word from you!

    1. God-sized prayers. Yes. I pray He would help you receive more than ever before so that you won’t be bound to your paycheck anymore! He’s dealing with me too about this God-sized thing. So much. Papa, help us think thoughts and dream dreams and pray prayers that are worthy of You.

  4. This is the very chapter I was reading and praying on this morning!!!! Thank you so much Jamie for allowing the Lord to use you in such mighty ways.

    1. Amazing how God speaks to all when He speaks to one. We are so deeply on His heart. Thank you for sharing, Reggie!

  5. Clement Amoah says:

    Wow!! oh Lord God give me a bigger faith to ask you for greater blessings and not just be okay with little things.

  6. Laurna Tallman says:

    Thank you, Jamie. It is difficult for me to expect gifts. I have worked so relentlessly that when gifts come they shock me. Yet, I have been met in my efforts to help others so generously that I have felt guilty about asking God for more for ourselves, although great needs remain and although I am walking under a prophecy of great plenty of the kind you affirm. Your message is loud and clear. I still don’t have a handle on His provision!Thank you for prying open the rusty locks on the doors in my brain.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing, Laurna. Sounds like many of us are all in the same place. I too have been very blessed, but the promise of the tithe is for Papa to dump so much provision on us that no need remains at all! My thinking has long been too small. Papa, we lift Your Word up to You. Open the windows of Heaven and pour us out such a blessing that all the need is filled and there is no more need. In Jesus’ name.

  7. Gwynne Nation says:

    Jamie:

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I know I serve the God of the impossible and yet I too live paycheck to paycheck. I desire to have faith to believe God for mountain moving faith to provide over and beyond what I need. I choose to release you, God from the box I’ve put you in and believe that you want to provide more that I can contain so I can be a channel of your unending blessings!! And I pray for your ministry that God will bless your socks off as you give your lives sacrificially to His service!!

    1. Amen! Letting Him out of the box we’ve put Him in through our own small thinking! I love it! Papa, help us!

  8. Rebecca L Jones says:

    I used to think that I had big dreams or even ” pipe dreams “, but God thinks bigger than we do and no matter how big my imagination is His is bigger. What is that about exceedingly, abundantly, we’re always talking about it. I told my mother we have not even scratched the surface of His love.

  9. Awesome! God Bless you! Thanks for the post. Definitely
    will be prayerful to our Mighty Loving Father, about this!

  10. Amen! I’m with you on this!!!
    Thank you!

  11. Cindy Williams says:

    Thank you Jamie! I will ask for more provision so I can be a blessing to more people!

    1. Good! And also just so you can receive all He has for you!! He loves you! and He wants you to have abundance and plenty and to enjoy it yourself also! 🙂

  12. WOW God bless you sis for this message. I pray for Elisah prayer stopping rain for 3 yrs.

  13. Angela Bley says:

    Oh my goodness is this ever a now Word for my family and me! Jamie, I’ve had situations lately that have set back my husband and me. I’ve been praying Psalms 23 expressin to Abba Father that He maketh me to lie down in green pastures and not dried up brown pastures. I’ve expressed to Father God that I don’t believe for just enough or just get by but I believe Him overflow! I believe Him more than enough! I’ve had a post purchase blues however I’ve been prompted to believe Our Great God for overflow! Yesssssss overflow! Your blog has confirmed whats been stirring in me! I’ve had fear grip me but God! Yes, but God says to believe Him for OVERFLOW! Thanks Jamie for following the Holy Spirits leading when you write! Let’s agree for Overflow! For we are blessed to be a blessing!

    1. Dearest Angela, I love that prayer for green pastures. I believe with you that Papa God is going to help you and bring you into a new level of provision. Beloved sister, He provided this house for you! I pray He would restore your joy in it. But ask and you shall receive–that your joy may be full! He wants us to ask!

  14. This is such a timely Word for me. Today was the last day on my job of 13 years, and while I’m believing my Father for provision, your post has challenged me to believe Him for OVERFLOW. Thank you so very much for sharing an encouraging Word and the scripture to back it up. May Father bless you in every way!

    1. Overflow–YES! He is God of More Than Enough. Papa, shower Your abundant provision and plenty on my sister this very day, in Jesus’ name!

  15. Stephanie Staker says:

    Jamie, I am behind in your blog posts but the Lord had a reason for that, obviously. For the last several weeks, He has been speaking to me through His Word and teachings from other leaders about my attitude towards His provision. I am getting radical about it now! 🙂 I am taking steps of faith in this regard, giving more than ever and I LOVE it! I love being to bless people, churches, ministries and God loves to give to me. That is the crux of it. He wants me to have what I want and what I need and more so that I can have more to give. The timing of this word is incredible. It is so true that our Father wants us to grow in an area that He will see to it that we get teachings all the time, blessings to show us what He means so this was again His Word to me to “get it”! Thank you for being obedient in giving this Word. God bless you exceedingly abundantly.

    1. Stephanie, amen and amen. I love what you said about giving! I actually keep a ledger on God in regards to seeds sown and harvests yielded. 🙂 It inspires my faith! Jesse Duplantis has fabulous work in the areas of seedtime and harvest, and the different yields God promises for different types of giving, if you haven’t read his material on that. Amazing stuff. God is so good and I pray we can both stretch our faith to grasp Him in all that He is and receive all that He has!

  16. Tiffany Thomas-jones says:

    Awesome word and conformation. …..We have a Big God! God said He would supply all our needs according to His riches and glory!!! This really opened my eyes and expectancy! Totally surrender all to Christ! Seek and you shall find!

    1. Yes! I’m trying to surrender more each day and seek His face! He’s so good and I know I still don’t have God-sized vision enough, but He’ll bring us all into it if we ask Him to and yield to Him. May He multiply and abound every good thing to you also today in Jesus’ name!

  17. Thank you Jaime for this word. This message revealed that I doubted the Lord to make a way of escape & provide all that’s needed from a hard place I’m in. If He did miracles for His children when crossing the Red Sea with the Egyptians chasing them He can do it again & for anybody who believes Him. For sure I will hash it out with Papa God 2 day?‼️God bless you & your ministry???

  18. Jaime,

    Thank you for this much-needed reminder! Even as I sit here I have no idea how my rent is going to get paid this month and I’ve been going over and over in my head (and because of my perfectionistic tendencies) how I could have planned better or been wiser about my finances. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, I so often forget that God doesn’t just want to meet my needs, but desires to give me overflow that will reach others as well! Thanks again for writing this. Exactly what I needed to hear today.

  19. Leith Alexander says:

    I think this is me – I need to “hash it out ” with Father God – He does provide but I need him to provide more. Thank you for this word.

    1. I completely understand, Leith! Please hash it out with Him and keep on doing so every day! I sure am. I am determined to have EVERYTHING He promises in His Word! And there’s so much more fulfillment of His promises to come!

  20. Izzy Castillo says:

    Where do I start? Dear Lord, I am guilty of this as well. I know God is with me, and He has never failed me. I ALWAYS have a provision, but only to cover immediate needs. I have a mortgage as well, and try hard to not buy on credit, therefore, I am not able to do much, but take one day at the time. I believe God’s word, but some where deep in my heart always think that it is not applicable to me. I am not worthy. I confess that I need to be more aggressive in this area. If I have not, it is because I am afraid to be seen as ambitious beyond what I should. Thank you sooooo much for this word! I have to grow in the Lord in all areas, not just in the obvious ones. My heart breaks as I find that doubt has been nesting in my life for far longer than I can say. Thanks for your obedience and please continue to teach us as the Lord tells you!

    1. Hi Izzy! I totally understand… but our good news is that Jesus is worthy and we are in Him! Remember that whatever is not of faith is sin, so we need to believe God for His radical promises and pray into them because if we don’t, it’s actually sin! Whoa! I just saw that myself, while I was typing this! So I’m hitting my knees again today just to pray some radical prayers. On faith! Let’s go! 🙂 <3
      Thank you for reading and sharing!

  21. I’m a just Start out blogger.. So love it, writing and being in God’s presence. I’m an evangelist a home missionary with a heart for God and for people. Your blog helped me to connect on a deeper level with God and my audience. I’ve recently found out about poverty spirit and it seems I had one/have one. I wouldn’t say I’ve been delivered from this fully. You’ve encouraged me that I am in the right place. My early online ministry. Was in chat rooms supporting the broken, low self esteem and those needed encouraging. I later moved to Facebook and messenger supporting young people self harming and with life issues. Today I’m blogging seeking to have multiple platforms.
    Thanks again and God bless you with your online ministry
