“The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food in due time. You open Your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” (Psalm 145:15-16)
Think about all of the living things in the world. Most are provided for without out thinking about it. The Lord has built provision into His creation. Marvel at the intricacy. All these things the Lord has done. He has provided in all seasons and each receives what is needed in its time. Marvel and do not be misled by those who claim credit for what the Lord alone can and has done for what He has created.
Lord, there are many ways in which You have provided for me and I have not even been aware. You provide for all of Your creation. Guide me, O Lord, in the ways You would have me go with awareness and thankfulness for all that You have done. Lead me now and always to live a life that thanks You for the many ways in which You provide. Let me perceive the abundance of Your provision.
Lord Jesus, You said that in the freedom given by grace we would have the abundant life. Lead me to see what is before my eyes that I would become grateful for the many things that are around me. Remind me to see that You have and do provide for all. In gratitude, guide my heart to be thankful in all things and for all things knowing that You know our needs even before we ask. Amen.
