Where are you looking? Who are you looking to? Are you looking to man to meet your need? Are you looking to some person to supply your lack? Are you expecting the arm of flesh to give you your provision? They are only vessels and instruments, and, yes, God does often use them. But our real source, our true helper, our provider is not found on earth, not found in mankind, not found in government, not found in even our own abilities. Our help and provision is found in the Lord Himself. He is the Way and Source behind the means.
If we lose sight of the fact that He is the provider, then if we lose our job we become anxious and fearful. If we lose sight of the fact that He is the one who gives us our strength, then when it fails we become discouraged and depressed. All that we have and all that we receive is given to us by God through His wonderful grace and goodness. Without Him we have nothing and are nothing. Every good and perfect gift comes from Him. He daily loads us with benefits. He supplies all our needs. He gives strength to the weak. He gives peace to the confused. He gives wisdom to those who need it. He does not withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly before Him. He feeds the sparrows and clothes the lilies, and us as well.
So stay focused on where your help lies. Don't forget who is the real source of your supply. Remember who the One is that meets your need and keep looking to Him.
Have a great day.. Are your eyes looking to men to meet your need? They are just an instrument. Look to the Lord who is the Source.
