An architect designed a cluster of office buildings around a central green area. After they were built, he called a landscape architect and asked him to plant grass in the field among the buildings.
Puzzled, the landscape architect asked, “But where do you want me to allow space for the
“Don’t worry about that. Just plant the grass,” said the architect.
A few months later, the buildings were filled with occupants. As the people walked from one building to another, they made pathways in the grass. The architect then decided it was time for the walkways.
“Do you see those paths created by the people?” he asked the landscape architect.
“Yes,” came the reply.
“That is where I want you to place the walks,” said the architect. “It was important for me to see the needs of the people going from one building to another before we located the walks.”
That’s the way our Lord works. When we have a need, He is ready to respond to us from His perspective, His plan, and His riches. He sees our needs before we do.
When we are afraid, He will increase our faith. When we grieve, He will give us His comfort and compassion. When we are overcome with problems, He will give us His solutions. When we are troubled, He will give us His peace. Whatever our need, He can meet it!
Prayer: Help us, Lord, to trust You completely for all that we need. We have the promise of Your Word, that if we ask, You can and will meet our every need. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
