S. O. A. P
Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
This entire chapter is filled with King David’s praise and adoration of Almighty God. He speaks of God’s grace, His love, His compassion, and His generosity. David said, “You Oh Lord … Your hand is OPEN (speaking of generosity) to satisfy the desires of every thing that is living.”
I’m not sure if Plants have “desires,” but I know they do have “needs.” For instance they need water, they need the sun, and they need nutrients from the ground. Then there are the Animals and Sea Life to discuss as well. In Florida, we have Sea Mammals known as Manatee. They’re not too attractive, and appear to serve no real purpose. Because they have to surface for air every 15 minutes, they get run over by boats quite often. When we first moved here, Manatee were on the “Endangered Species List.” But The Lord’s “OPEN Hand” saved the Manatee. Certain laws were put into effect and today the Manatee are thriving in Southern Florida. If God’s “OPEN Hand” is available even to Manatees … and birds, and grass, and lilies (Matt. 6:25-31), YOU must know today that His OPEN Hand of generosity is reaching towards you. Jesus is prepared to meet your every desire today. We’re not discussing an “Open Hand” from the government or your boss or the state lottery. NO! We’re talking about an “OPEN Hand” that is reaching towards you, that created you, and cares all about you! So get ready because your supply is coming from … “The OPEN Hand of Jesus!”
Thank You for supplying my every need according to Your own riches in Heaven. Amen
