Thought I’d remind us of God’s provision today.
His provision of earthly needs like TP, food, water.
His provision of spiritual needs like forgiveness and grace.
And His ultimate authority over the devil.
And also His provision of emotional needs like comfort and peace.
God’s storehouses are always filled to overflowing.
His power knows no bounds.
Even for our physical needs?
Remember the Isrealites?
He fed them in the desert.
He knows your every need. Even your physical ones.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:26-27 (NIV)
Funny story: yes, I’m still stuck on finding toilet paper.
Where is it all, I still beg to know?
Recently, my son, who lives on his own, was over for lunch.
Said he was down to his last roll of TP.
Discovered my mother was rationing as well.
My daughter calls, says a pallet of TP has literally just been unwrapped on the floor of the store.
Immediately, we jump into the car and run into the store, locating our mystified treasure.
Sure enough, there’s some.
Not a ton, maybe 50 packages.
My son, husband and I each grab one.
Literally feel as if we have won the lottery.
We deliver one to my folks, not getting too close, of course.
They are truly grateful.
And so is my son.
Have I seen any more TP in the stores since then?
Still don’t know where it all has gone.
But when my son and parents needed it, God delivered.
Shouldn’t be surprising.
God sees you.
He sees your every need.
And He’s got it.
He’s more than enough to cover you emotionally.
He’s more than enough to cover you spiritually.
And He’s more than enough to cover you physically.
Keep trusting Him for enough.
Because He is.
He is enough.
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 (NIV)
