Thanksgiving is tomorrow! It is a traditionally a time to gather with family and friends, a time to thank God for His provision. But at Thanksgiving, we sometimes get a little too focused on preparing and enjoying the feast.
How does God’s provision look?
For many readers, God’s provision looks like the Christian parents who worked to put food on the table, who strived to live Godly lives, and who taught their families about God’s Word.
Of course, God provides for our physical needs – not only the feast that we will prepare and enjoy this week, but also the daily bread that is in our grocery baskets and on our tables. He provides good health, physical safety, and sweet rest from our work. He promises to be with us when those things seem to be at risk or even missing. Above all, He promises eternal life to His believers. We are, indeed, a blessed people.
God’s provision surely spills over into our words as authors.
How does God’s provision look to you?
I wish you and your loved ones a very blessed Thanksgiving and a time to reflect on the many ways He has blessed you.
