When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, many businesses were affected. I have countless messages of people who lost their livelihoods and their businesses went down. Due to the restrictions in movement, the flow of supply of some raw materials was affected. Many people let go of their businesses because they could not access materials, their suppliers could not deliver. It has been a tough year, a year of learning that there is no superpower country, no immortal company, no unlimited human, and no other faithful supplier.
My friends and I were testifying how the Lord has been faithful this year and one of them pointed out that the only faithful supplier this year has been God. We thought about it and all agreed that He has not only been faithful this year bit He has always been faithful. Maybe our eyes were more open this year after being failed by our other sources and suppliers. We talked about the fact that at some point even the powerful and wealthy were shaken; even the suppliers were limited.
The Lord is our faithful supplier; all others are prone to fail. But He promises us that HE will supply all our needs according to His riches in glory. (Philippians 4:19) He does not promise to supply our greed but our needs. When there is a pandemic, he still supplies, when there are storms he still supplies. No situation can deter Him from supplying because He does not look at our resources and bank accounts but His riches in glory.
Right now you may be discouraged because of the many needs you have in your life. You may feel like giving up because all around you there seems to be no way out. This morning, look up! Look to the faithful supplier. He who is not limited, He whose riches are not affected by a global pandemic. Cheer up, He will supply.
