Today’s reading: Genesis 41-42; Ps. 10:12-18; Prov. 4:7-9; Matthew 14:1-21
God’s provision during times of famine
Spiritual maturity and growth is established with our trust and faith in God. His grace is sufficient for us in all seasons. As we walk in sincere obedience, faithfully devoted to God, we will experience peace of mind. Today, people are walking in spiritual famine and we are the storehouse of love, grace, and truth that brings necessary nourishment to their souls.
This is because our Heavenly Father is constantly directing, guiding and preparing, us for something new. Many times, we are brought low into those valleys where our only option is to turn to and depend upon God’s divine favor. The length of our time in these valleys are dependent upon God’s divine timing and purpose. Yet, He is faithful in sustaining us during those times. Instead of doubt, we worship, praise, and seek God’s wisdom and comfort. For God has greater purpose whereby we are being prepared to accomplish His will.
No matter what, we all enter into seasons where we depend upon God’s divine nurture and sustenance in order to sustain us. He will eventually bring us out of those valleys, and bring us to where we are able to fully see the purpose and meaning behind what He has prepared us for. Through our faithful obedience to Him and His divine and sovereign will, we are able to then provide to those who are in a season of famine.
It is in those valleys where we realize and eagerly declare God being the true source of wisdom.
