Psalm 145:16 Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Is it just me or does it not seem somewhat amazing to you that everything on this planet is taken care of by God? The birds are given wisdom and supplies to make their nest and food enough to eat. The fish are given the globe for an aquarium to dwell in and some feed on microscopic particles that we cannot even see. Animals have all found different ways to make a home from caves, to burrows in the ground, or places in the trees. God supplies the rain, oxygen, and nutrients in the soil for plants and trees to grow. He gives us the right amount of cold, heat, sunlight, darkness, and seasons each year so even the wildest of plants flourish without anyone but God tending to them. From the smallest one cell organism to the entire planet and its multiple complexities, God created and sustains it all every minute of every day. As our verse today says He, “satisfiest the desire of every living thing.”
Do you know why he does all that? He does it for you. All that is created on this earth was given to man in Genesis. It was all created for you. Adam, Eve, and Satan spoiled some of it when they decided to disobey God. However, they could never destroy it all. God opens His hand and supplies for the living. From the intricate beauty of the smallest flower to the majestic span of all the stars in the sky, God created it for you to behold His wonders. The oxygen, food, and water needed to sustain life were all created by God for you.
In the New Testament God shares this truth with us another way when He says in Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” He has, He is, and He always will supply for His own child. Real love is about giving. God has given this to you. He loves you.
