Jesus is our Good Shepard, taking care of our needs. He calls out to us bidding us to listen to His voice and follow Him.
Living Without Want
Martin Luther wrote, "God's Word teaches us not to be greedy or wasteful or to worry about the future, but to live contently in confidence that the Lord will give us what we need."
What change has to happen in your life so that you can more faithfully lean on God?
God desires to use us to provide for the needs of others. God does not want us to be selfish, but to share with those who are unable to work and include them in our prayers for daily bread.
How can you live these words today and this week?
God is good and gracious Father. He seeks to provide for us and He delights when we look to Him.
One BIG part of looking to God for your daily support is HOW we receive His support.
What insight do these passages of the Bible give us as to how we are to receive God's gracious support?
Today, how are you going to give thanks to God for His goodness?
Why should we look to God to support our bodies and meet our needs? This appears to be a simple question, but meditate on these passages, and see what new insight God gives you. Psalm 145:15-16; Mathew 5:45; and Acts 17:28.
