No More Wanting

How much of mankind seems to be wanting something! Improved health, better jobs, acceptance by others, changed living conditions, peace—the list seems endless.

Some may feel that God has forgotten them. But reason tells us that God, who is Love and the source of all being, as the Bible teaches, does not forget His beloved creation. A Psalm says of Him, "Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing." Ps. 145:16; The children of divine Love must have as their natural inheritance an abundance of good, fulfillment, and satisfaction.

What happened to the children of Israel during their wilderness wanderings each time they ceased fearing and complaining, acknowledged God's guidance, and were obedient to it? Their want was met. The Red Sea parted to enable them to pass through, they were fed with quail and manna, their thirst was quenched by pure water struck from a rock. Again and again it was proved that God, divine Spirit, was the source of supply for all their needs.
