About Pursued by Love Series
Love is a force that is not stoppable or predictable. Love is unquenchable. The only thing you can do to Love is…miss it.
“She does not know it was I who gave her the grain, the new wine and the oil and lavished on her silver and gold which they used for Baal.”
Hosea 2:8 NASB
God is the source of every provision. From common bread to silvered wealth, God is the giver—the Only Giver.
David amassed a fortune for the building of the temple. Today it would amount to billions of dollars. He said, “Now with all MY ABILITY I have provided for the house of my God…” but he carefully worshipped and publicly declared, “For all things come from You and from Your hand we have given You” (1 Chronicles 29).
To fail to see God as Husband-Provider, to give credit to myself or another for rich provision, is to betray Him as though it were the most flagrant and cheap adultery.
