The Lord's Provision
Psa 145:15 The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season
Psa 145:16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Psa 145:17 The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.
Psa 145:18 The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
Psa 145:19 He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
Psa 145:20 The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
It is wrong for us to think of our great God as some kind of a cosmic Genie beckoning to our every need. It is we who are to serve Him, not Him serving us.
Yet, how wonderful to have the assurance of His watch care and provision for us.
As little chirping birds in the nest with mouths agape, awaiting our next meal from mom, we wait upon our faithful Lord Who provides without fail.
He gives us our meat in due season. Every living thing is satisfied at the hand of God.
Again, we dare not think of God as our servant and yet we are told that He is very near to those that call upon Him in sincerity. Not only does He fill our needs, but He will even grant our desires.
I never thought I would experience how "the other half" lives, but no butler or maid could care for my every need as our glorious Provider does.
I am encouraged to redouble my efforts to do more for the One Who does so much for me.
