THE SUSTAINER

Have you ever wondered and imagined who is behind your perfect growing up? Or who is behind the beauty of the world?
Do you think the meagre effort of your parent has sustained you right from the cradle up to this moment?



Or your job or work that has been sustaining you all this while.
I can assure you that our growing up is beyond the mere effort of our parent.
And our daily bread is not really coming from the work or job we do.
The sustainer has been behind our well being.
And the sustainer is the supreme God

Having known that the supreme God is behind our well being, why then should we worry about tomorrow?
He said in His word, in mattew 6: 25, 31 & 34 that

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself”

Its also written in this most distributed and highest sold book in Philippians 4:19 and Jeremiah 29:11 respectively that;

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end"

Also, the activities and of man is perfectly controlled by the supreme God just as it is said in the bible in proverbs 20:24 & 16:9 that

“A person's steps are directed by the Lord. How then can anyone understand their own way?”

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps”

The supreme God gives great wealth to the rich man, He also gives little wealth to the poor.
He has given to each and everyone what is due to him.
If there were no poor people there wouldn't be rich people
If there were no sick people, there wouldn't be doctors.
If there were no education, there wouldn't be lecturers and teachers, e.t.c
The supreme God has made them all

The supreme God blessed some people not because He want to make them rich but because He want to sustain the world.
When the Lord bless one person, millions would be blessed through that one person.

If the inventor of internet or world wide web (www) was not blessed, the inventor of google or whatsapp wouldn't have been blessed.

The water cycle, the carbon cycle and every other cycle you may know are all the makings of the supreme God.

All the daily invention and innovation of the world are from the supreme God

In summary, I want us to know that our ways are directed by the Lord and our life is equally sustained by him.
He is the owner of the world, so He is the sustainer.
