Provision Provided

Those of us in the United States know what April 15th is—the last day to file taxes for last year. Taxes aren’t new. During Jesus’ day area tax collectors were responsible for enforcing everyone to pay. Peter was approached about this and told them ‘of course Jesus pays taxes’, and then hurriedly found Jesus to tell him. Jesus wasn’t surprised nor was He panicked about how to pay the required tax. He told Peter in Matthew 17:7, NASB, “so that we do not offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and me.” Provision provided. It may not be money for taxes that you need. It may be rent or food, a car or–. Jesus is your provider. He is faithful, and I am confident that “my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”, Philippians 4:19.
