“The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food in due season.
You open your hand; you satisfy the desire of every living thing.” Psalm 145:15-16
I’m fascinated by the Lord’s orchestration of seasons. Continually making all things new, each year, each spring, His hand in this is a model, an example of the many seasons of our lives. There are physical seasons, spiritual seasons, seasons within families, seasons of a church. Nothing remains constant except Him; the Lord is the rock, the concrete center of all this ebb and flow.
It is certainly true that all eyes look to Him for life, breath, food, and every necessity. We are fully dependent upon His creation, upon the air we breath, the water we drink, the plants and animals that feed our bodies. We should look to Him for other things as well–particularly when we try to understand ourselves and the world around us. Only He satisfies.
Notice that He gives us food in due season. Not all the time, not all food, but what food we need when it’s appropriate, necessary, needful.
