And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
God provides everything we need, not sparingly but according to his riches. He provides for us spiritually, sending friends to care for us and his Word to feed our souls. He also provides for us physically. Think about the abundance of foods he has made available to us; your local grocery store probably has dozens of fruits and vegetables, as well as a variety of nuts, whole grains, fried beans, herbs, and spices. If you visit ethnic grocery stores, you'll find flavorful mushrooms, salty sea vegetables, and other plants you never dreamed of. Ultimately, all food comes from God as He works through the array of growers and markets to take uit frok the fields to our tables.
He promises, "Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing" (Psalm 34:10.) Treat God's provision as an adventure. Lay your needs before him and watch him provide.
Food For Thought: We can be confident of always having enough good things to nourish us, because God provides generously.
