Our Real Provider

All mankind is searching for ideal conditions in a world that is anything but ideal. Many people think the world owes them a living. If that is true, who is going to pay off this indebtedness? Everything that you receive free, somebody had to work to pay for.

I am convinced that a peace built upon promises of keeping people free from want is precarious. We can try, but populations are increasing at astounding rates. There are more hungry people today than ever before. There are more diseased people than ever before.

I know of only one Ruler who can supply our needs. The Bible says, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). That promise is made to the people of God. He can give us perfect contentment. The Scripture says He will supply all of our needs “according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). The believer has a right to call upon the inexhaustible supply of God to meet his needs.
