Meditations in the Psalms
When you feel discouraged and things seem so difficult to handle as well as to understand, it is wise to take another look at how God’s creation functions. Behind it all, is an all-wise Creator Who provides for His creation. In these verses we read of God’s provision for cattle and humanity. We read of the trees He created and the hills and rocks, all places of refuge for the birds, wild goats, and conies. I Peter 5:7 says, “Cast all your care (worry or anxiety) upon Him, for He careth for you.” Trust Him – depend upon His grace and provision for your every need!
- The food He provides – verse 14
- The face of men He causes to shine – verse 15
- The fullness of the trees for the birds – verses 16-17
- The fortress of the hills and rocks for a place of refuge – verse 18
The animals know where to hide and be nourished – do you?
