He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate— bringing forth food from the earth: Psalm 104:14
And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. Genesis 1:29
It is God who brings forth food from the Earth for us. He designed a world in which we could partner with him to cultivate life that provides for the nourishment of our bodies.
God provided food with abundance, with variety, with a creativity that He loves us to enjoy. God’s provision is a mark of his steadfast love, a love rooted deep and flourishingly radiant, a love that feeds our deepest soul needs and fuels our well-being and well-doing.
How does God provide for your daily needs? How does food from the Earth invite you to worship God?
God, with deep gratitude we acknowledge your provision, your ongoing daily goodness to us. May we find in you the food we truly need to flourish.
