God Cares for You

"Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it." Psalm 37:4-5 (NASB)

In my quiet time with God, I came across this great excerpt from Max Lucado's "The Great House of God". This message has impacted my outlook as to how God cares for His children.

"God is committed to caring for our needs. Paul tells us that a man who won't feed his own family is worse than an unbeliever (1Tim. 5:8). How much more will a holy God care for his children? After all, how can we fulfill his mission unless our needs are met? How can we teach or minister or influence unless we have our basic needs satified? Will God enlist us in his army and not provide a commissary? Of course not.

'I pray that the God of peace will give you everything you need so you can do what he wants' (Heb. 13:20). Hasn't that prayer been answered in our life? We may not have had a feast, but haven't we always had food? Perhaps there was no banquet, but at least there was bread. And many times there was a banquet." The Great House of God - Max Lucado
