Feeding the Rightseous

Proverbs 10:3

The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.

God has promised to supply our needs.  In Matthew 6 Jesus repeats this promise by reminding us how God takes care of the birds of the air and how much more He cares for us.

Jesus also instructed us not to worry about tomorrow because each day had enough to worry about on it’s own.  No one can add a day to their life by worrying.

I can recall seeing this promise in action.  My dad was out of work and money was tight.  On more than one occasion we would come home to find a bag of groceries sitting on our doorstep with no clue who it was from. 

This doesn’t mean that things will always be easy but I believe this verse is good for other things in life as well.  From my observation those who are walking closely with the Lord tend to have less car problems, furnace malfunctions, plumbing mishaps, etc. 

This doesn’t mean if you’re having those type of problems though that you must be unrighteous.  These things happen to everyone from time to time.  But we can rest assured that God will take care of us and will supply our needs.
