My Father Provides

Psalm 128

A song of ascents.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
    who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
    blessings and prosperity will be yours.

God’s plan for the man is to provide for his family. He is to be a provider for the home. This goes all the way back to Genesis 3:19. “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground.” Now he’s saying it’s not going to be easy. And that ladies is why God gave men a tough exterior. He’s suppose to be tough because he is the primary breadwinner. God did not make the woman to be the primary breadwinner. God made you ladies, to be the nurturer.

God made the man to provide. That provision goes beyond food and clothing and housing. If you think that you can give your kids things and put your wife in a beautiful house and you’ve done your job, you’re wrong. You are to provide the emotional and spiritual security of that home. We have a generation today that has forgotten that principle.

You are not to be only a provider, you are to be a provisionary. That is to say what does my family really need? Have you ever sat down and thought out plans for your family? I have. I have them on my prayer list. I’ve thought out plans for my life and plans for each one of my children. That doesn’t mean that I can rule their homes. I can not.

But I have something that I can pray for. I have something that I can work towards. I have something that I can hope for. What is God’s plan? What is man’s fruitful work? He is to be a provider and he is to be a protector.
