Supply

The Bible records many instances in human experience which confirm an existent law of supply. Not only were the children of Israel fed during their journey through the wilderness, but their "raiment waxed not old," nor did a foot swell. Centuries before Jesus' time Elijah declared, "Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail;" and we read, "The barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah."

Our Saviour, Christ Jesus, repeatedly dispelled the mistaken sense of lack—by turning the water into wine, by filling the empty fish nets, by furnishing abundant food for the multitudes from a few loaves and fishes, and by obtaining the tribute money in a manner so far removed from human probability as to prove convincingly the activity of God's law of supply. He instructed Peter, "Go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee."
