“He said to [his] disciples, ‘Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat… For life is more than food'” (Luke 12:22a, 23a)
My wife had a 2-day holiday with friends in an exclusive resort. Because we want her to just enjoy her moments, we told her not to bother preparing our food packs, which she usually does every day.
She left home early in the morning. My family had a quick breakfast without her and drove-off for our day in the office.
I do not have the usual food pack I bring for the day.
To my surprise, a few minutes upon my arrival the office, two of my staff gave me something I really do not expect: one gave me a cup of bean jelly/curd (taho, in Tagalog), and another gave me an apple! I have food for my snacks!
Just before twelve noon, as I was about to go to the canteen, my staff told me that a member of my office team will be bringing in food for our lunch. Another surprise!
I was so touched at how the LORD provides. As I had asked my wife not to prepare food so she can enjoy her day with friends, the LORD touched somebody else — these three guys — to give me food!
Truly amazing! His Word is indeed real: “seek first the kingdom [of God] and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides” (Matthew 6:33)
Reflection: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life and what you will eat… For life is more than food” (Luke 12:22a, 23a)
Prayer: Am sorry LORD for the times that I have not fully trusted in You by worrying. Grant me the grace to live a life fully surrendered to You! Amen.
