Day 1 Devotional: God Supplies Our Every Need

God Supplies Our Every Need

When I walk in the morning, it always amazes me that there is dew on the grass. It’s such a beautiful sight to see as it glistens in the morning sun. It brings me back to a conversation that I had with my dad several years ago when I was talking to him about how worried I was about my family’s finances. As we were driving in the car, he told me to look at the grass and as I looked over, he kindly said “The Lord supplies the grass with what it needs daily. How much more will He do for you?” I’ve held on to that truth for years now and it always brings me comfort when I look out onto the beautifully trimmed yards and see that dew – the perfect sustenance from our Lord.

Throughout scripture, we see that the dew of God represents His blessings. In Genesis 27:28, we see that when Isaac blesses Jacob, he says “May God give you of the dew of heaven and of the fatness of the earth and plenty of grain and wine.” We also see in scripture that the dew of God represents provision. In Numbers 11:9, it reads “When the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell with it.” The dew of heaven is a divine shower of blessings and provision that God gives to His people. 

I have learned throughout adulthood that most of my adulting revolves around worrying. Do we have enough? Will we have enough? How are we going to get through this? I have spent so much of my time worrying about things that God has already told me He will take care of. We read in Philippians 4:19 “God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” and yet we spend the majority of our time worrying about the things that God has already blessed us with and has provided. He gives us the perfect sustenance for our day. He wakes us up in the morning and before we even get out of bed, the dew is already there. It has nothing to do with how much I worried or talked about it or negotiated with God. He already has an abundant supply and because of His grace and His great love for us, He lavishes His blessings upon us. 

I would urge you, brothers and sisters, that when the worrying starts to creep in about whether or not you have enough, take a look outside onto the morning grass. Take a walk through it and feel the dew brush against your skin. And remember that God did that. He has riches in glory that are poured out daily upon you.
