God is Provider

This morning at church, Jan Wood shared something that seems so fitting for the national mood, especially since Drudge just picked up an article highlighting the many economic sufferings of the current time entitled, "Everything seemingly is spinning out of control." Jan pointed out that we have so long held on to the notion that we are the ones who are responsible for our daily bread, but the truth is that God is simply and only and solely the One who provides. For all of the suffering of economic hardship, there is certainly beauty contained in the realization of what has always been true - we are powerless to save ourselves. God is Jehovah Jireh.
