“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 (NIV)
“He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills.” Psalm 147:8 (NIV)
This has been a very dry, very hot summer. Little rain in sight. Today is a beautiful day… thunderstorms and a high of 93… not 100! Wow! Who would have seen this coming? It might sound a little cliché to say that God saw it coming, but He did! He knew that we had to have a break from the dreaded heat and desperately needed the rain. So… He provided! It really doesn’t matter what it is that we need, He knows and He provides! It really is as simple as that, yet I know I don’t always remember. It is so easy for me to try to carry things on my own and not wait for Him. This is exactly how God did not intend for it to be. He is the only one who not only knows what I need but knows it better than I do… and He can provide it as well. As moms we know the needs of our children better than they do and so we care for them. It’s the same thing with God. My son never has to worry about his needs, they will always be met, just as we do not need to worry either… our needs will always be met! Today as it rains, I am thankful for His constant ability to provide for me!
