Yet he gave a command
to the skies above
and opened the doors of heaven;
He rained down manna
for the people to eat,
He gave them the grain of heaven.
Men ate the bread of angels;
he sent them all the food they could eat.
Psalms 78: 23-24
What a picture of abundance! He also poured forth water from a rock in the middle of the dry dessert. He dropped quail at their tent openings--they didn't even have to hunt for it. Their clothes and shoes didn't wear out for 40 years as they wandered the wilderness.
God did all of this for the Israelites in the Old Testament. God still provides today. I love this modern day story of God's provision.
My friends are missionaries in the desert of an African nation. The husband works in a hospital. Years ago the Muslim government begrudgingly gave the Christian medical missionary group some land to build a facility. They didn't exactly give them prime property--just sand in the middle of nowhere.
The group accepted the land and began to build a hospital and drill for water. God is full of surprises in His provision. As the workers drilled down they hit a huge underground aquifer. This land in the middle of the desert, off the beaten path was in the prime location with God's provision of water beneath.
Do you have a need? God is in the business of giving good things to His children. In fact, He can open the doors of heaven--or the depths of the Earth--to provide.
