God’s supply for us never runs out

Absolute darkness lay before me as I approached the bridge on the country road. It seemed as if I’d driven into a black abyss. There was no reflection of anything ahead of me in the headlights—nothing I could see to indicate that the road kept going on the other side of the bridge. I just knew that it did.

I couldn’t help feeling that this drive over the bridge was a metaphor for my life at that moment. I was driving toward a place where I knew I’d be allowed to sleep for a few weeks. Adverse circumstances had left me with no money, no job, no home—just the car I was driving and a few belongings. I had no idea what lay ahead. But, as certainly as I knew the road continued on the other side of the bridge, I knew that God had a perfect road ahead for my life. I quietly slipped my hand into His with total trust.

The Bible has so many accounts of God-provided supply in the face of what seemed to be hopeless cases of lack. One is the story of Moses leading the children of Israel out of Egypt (see Exodus 12:37-17:7). When they came to the Red Sea, they seemed to lack a way forward. But God parted the sea for them. When there was no food, manna fell. When there was no water, God told Moses to strike a rock, which gushed plenty of water.
