15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. – Psalm 145:15-16 (NIV)
God offers each believer what he or she needs in this life. He provides each and every one of us precisely what we need in order to sustain us. The Lord does not promise us a surplus. He promises us sufficiency. He will deliver on all of His promises.
We need to accept the Lord at His promises. We need to truly rely upon the Lord as our sole provider. Anything that we do receive still has its genesis with the Lord our God. Otherwise, we end up leaning on our own understanding. That’s not faith. That’s foolishness, far from wisdom.
When the Lord opens His hand, desires are satisfied. Needs are met when the Lord opens things up. No feelings or egos are bruised when the Lord our God opens His hand and provides for us. Let us lean and depend on Him for all that we need and give Him both glory and praise for every blessing He bestows upon us.
