“Give us today the food we need,”
Matthew 6:11 NLT
We have seen empty shelves and heard several stories of people hoarding necessities that are needed during the Covid-19 pandemic. God wants us to depend on him daily. It reminds me, in the Old Testament when God freed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. They were complaining to Moses and God that there is little food in the wilderness. God heard their plea and provided manna to fall from the sky. The Israelites were instructed to only pick up as much food as they needed for that day. On the sixth day they will gather food, and when they prepare it, there will be twice as much as usual. They did not gather on Sabbath. What can we learn from this? Yes, God will provide our needs. He loves us and will take care of us.
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:19 NLT
