He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Lord Provides Away

Mat 17:27 ….go to the sea, cast in a hook, and take the fish that comes up first. And when you have opened its mouth, you will find a piece of money; take that and give it to them for Me and you.

God’s sovereignty and human responsibility are not in conflict with each other, one informs the other and that is God’s sovereignty influences the human responsibility.

Jesus and Peter owed temple taxes. In this situation, Jesus instructed Peter to go fish out a particular fish and in it would be a coin enough to clear the debt.

God provides and we have a responsibility to others (government, companies, those we owe). Work was not a result of the the curse from the fall to be despised. And here Jesus could have called money into existence to pay the debt but He did not. Jesus provided but Peter had work to do. He told him to GO, CAST, TAKE, OPEN, FIND, GIVE. God can provide away to minimize or clear your debt, not by calling money into existence but by leading you places to fish (new position, more work, overtime, part time job, side jobs etc). You have to go the extra mile with His help. He has already handled the impossible. If you pray Lord provide away, don’t be surprised to hear GO, CAST, TAKE, OPEN, FIND, GIVE.
