The Provider

A flight attendant came down the aisle with the food cart.  When she got to one couple she noticed they were both asleep.   Many flight attendants would choose not to disturb the sleepers and just pass them by.  However, this flight attendant, quietly as possible, lowered their tray tables and carefully arranged their meals for them.  After several minutes passed one of the passengers stirred and joyfully found her meal in front of her.

This is somewhat the way God takes care of us.  He prepares a table for us often without our knowing He is doing so.  Sometimes we are sleeping or we are very busy with life and do not seem to notice.

In Acts 14 we find the story of Paul and Barnabas healing a crippled man.  The people of the city were very excited and proclaimed Paul and Barnabas to be gods.  Quickly Paul corrected their error and in pointing them to the real God he said, “He has shown kindness by giving you rain from heaven and crops in their seasons; he provides you with plenty of food and fills your hearts with joy.”

Our God knows your needs and provides for you.  He will never let you down.  Never!
