Psalm 104:13, Zechariah 10:1 NIV 2011

He waters the mountains from his upper chambers.

Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime; it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people, and plants of the field to everyone.

The Creator God provides all that is needed to sustain the earth. Psalm 147:8, “He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills.” God’s prophet Zechariah encouraged the returning Jews from Babylonia exile living in Jerusalem. Discouraged after years in exile, they needed to ask in faith for the Lord to provide for their needs. Jeremiah 14:22, “Do any of the worthless idols of the nations bring rain? …No it is you, Lord our God.” God showered them with all they would need. The Lord provides everything needed to those that trust Him.

My new personal question, “Is this a want or a need?” It was actually something a gal in my BSF discussion group shared. And it has actually been a game changer for me. The same God that knew what the Israelites needed knows exactly what I need. When I stop and look at all the ways He’s provided what I need, I’m humbled. I can never out give the Lord and knowing that, I rest in him daily. Trusting Him like the Israelites, He showers me with everything I need.

Where is God providing for everything you need?

Trusting Him together,
