What to Expect From God

What can I expect from my Father in heaven? The Bible teaches that God has unlimited resources, unlimited energy, unlimited knowledge, unlimited time. He can supply all of your needs: "My God shall supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19 NIV) The Lord's Prayer, found in Matthew 6, gives us an example of that. It says, God, as our Father, provides three things: Provision for today -- "Give us this day our daily bread." Pardon for yesterday - "Forgive us our debts as we have forgiven our debtors." Protection for tomorrow -- "Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one." God says "I've got all the bases covered: present, future, past. Your past? You blew it. It's OK. It's forgiven. Your present? I'll provide. Your future? Don't worry. Don't fear. I'll take care of yesterday's failures, today's frustrations, tomorrow's fears because I am a capable Father."
