Think about a time when you literally “followed” someone somewhere. Did you actually know where you were going? Or did you simply trust the one who did?
In the midst of this economic uncertainty, it can be genuinely scary as we consider how we will pay rent, eat, stay warm or just generally “get by”.
Think about today’s startling description of the first disciples – how they left their jobs (and economic security) entirely to follow Jesus. A bold move! Yet, we learn from the rest of the gospels that during their time with Jesus on earth, they didn't lack once. They didn’t know where they were going. But trusted the one who did.
Although our individual circumstances may be different during this season, God hasn’t changed. He is still our provider. He is still our source. We are still called to “follow Him” and trust Him with our lives.
Today, focus on God’s promise to be our Provider. One of the names for God in the Bible is Jehovah Jireh which means “God Provides”.
Just as Jesus taught us to pray, let’s ask our Father to “Give us today our daily bread” (Matthew 6), and trust Him each day to give us what we need.
If you are in a position to be generous, think of one person who may need your help today. Be Jesus’ hands and feet towards them.
