30 DoW: Psalm 145 - Generous

Psalm 145
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures through all
generations. The Lord is faithful to all his
promises and loving toward all he has made.

The Lord upholds all those who fall
and lifts up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all look to you,
and you give them their food at the proper time.

You open your hand
and satisfy the desires of every living thing.

The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and loving toward all he has made.

The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.

I can't stop thinking about this because of current circumstances which might affect income. But I'm not really concerned about money, because I've always seen God provide for me and my family in all kinds of ways, and I've seen Him provide for friends in times of need in ways no one could have imagined, always "at the proper time."

To paraphrase something I heard
f Satan threatened to take everything you have away, the Christian could simply reply, "It's not mine. My Father owns it all. I'm simply taking care of His property." And if Satan offered you the world, the believer could simply respond, "It's already mine. My Father owns it all. This is my inheritance."

The Lord has created everything, owns everything, distributes as He sees fit.
Thank you, LORD, for your true generosity in all you've made, in creating a planet that sustains our very lives.
If all our "things" were taken today, we can still praise you for your provision, past, present and future—even forever.

Thank you, Jesus, for the ultimate generous act of giving your very life
for all who call on you in Truth.
And thank you for your presence in my life.
