“These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time.
When you give it to them, they gather it up;
When you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.”
Earlier in this Psalm David is listing details that God planned out from the beginning, and how His Earth is dependent on him to survive. It is a beautiful list, I encourage you to read it, an awesome reminder of how God is in everything.
It is sometimes hard, in this hard-working American culture to admit we are dependent. The goal, since birth, is often to be an Independent, hard-working person so we can “get ahead” in this world. But I’m not sure that’s exactly what God wants us to be. I think we need to strive to be more dependent on Him. On His promises. On his timing. The birds don’t sit around wondering, how can I make myself stronger, faster, smarter so that I will have more? They already know that it’s all there for them, it’s a matter of Waiting for God to open his Hands for them, which will provide everything that they need.
There are times when I am confused and a bit frustrated about where I am right now, since MY plan was to be in Brazil right now. But I have learned (by necessity) to depend on Him for everything. Everything I need is already in His hands. But He will open His hand when the timing is right. In the mean time he has already given me everything and more I need for this season of my life. So, I’m not worried about it. If my fingerprints don’t get accepted this time around, yeah I’ll call someone a stupid idiot but I know why it didn’t work out. God already has this all worked out. His blessings are too many to count in this season and the next.
