One day, I was listening to a sermon preached by Jerry Savelle, a minister who had travelled with Reverend Kenneth Copeland. He taught about how our debts are smitten, and he shared this scripture from Deut. 28:7. The Merriam-Webster dictionary says smitten means: to strike sharply or heavily especially with the hand or an implement held in the hand. Well, God has smitten our debts with His hand.
Rev. Savelle instructed everyone to write down all of our debts and put it on a sheet of paper and thank God that those debts are taken care of—that they are smitten. I had a brand new car that I was making payments on. My car was one of the things I had written on that paper. Two and a half years into my loan, I was blessed by my precious family and they paid off the rest of my car of $13,000! Praise the Lord!
What was that from? From the goodness of God and His provision. It is an example of how God has already taken care of all my needs. God wanted to bless me and put it on my family’s heart to pay off my car. There is nothing too big for our God! He is good! Trust in Him, look to Him in everything. You will not lack, even when things seem hard, He will meet all your needs and supply them with His provision. You may ask, “What if my family does not have the money to pay off my car?” Well, believe God for the provision. It is God that provides not your family. He is the one who makes a way. God just used my family in this situation, but it is God who makes a way. Psalm 50:10 says, ‘For every beast of the forest is Mine, And the cattle on a thousand hills.’ (KJV) God has lots of ways to provide for you, you have to trust Him for the provision.
How can you build your faith for provision? By feeding your spirit with the Word of God concerning finances and provision. Also listening to preaching and teaching on God’s Word, because faith comes by hearing and hearing by God’s Word. You do not have to lack because God has already provided everything you need. Praise the Lord!
