Food and water, these are the basics, but absolute necessities. There have been sometimes in the last few months that shelves at stores have been pretty bare. That’s been a little challenging. But even with some commodity restrictions most of us have had access to food and water. Maybe it hasn’t been the exact cut of meat we’ve wanted and it’s maybe not been already prepared in a restaurant setting like we’ve been used to, but we have had the ability to have food and water. In this passage, it shows us Who the provider of food and water is. It allows us to see Who we need to thank every day for our daily sustenance.
“He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains. They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches. He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work. He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate—bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts.”
So, do we thank Him enough for all that He provides? Every meal, every glass of water literally comes from His hand.
Lord, help me to be more grateful. I see that my food, my water, my very existence comes from You. Thank You.
