Scientists tell us that our world is
governed by what they call "natural law."
Most of them forget that behind
the law is the Lawgiver.

Behind creation is a Creator, who cares
for His creation and His people.
Who unifies the universe?
The God who made it.

All of creation waits upon Him and trusts
Him to supply what is needed.
As the psalmist wrote,
"These all wait for You, that You may
give them their food in due season.
What You give them they gather in;
You open Your hand, they are filled
with good" (vv. 27,28).

God gives and we gather. He provides
and we take. He is dependable; He takes
care of His own. "I have been young,
and now am old," David said.
"Yet I have not seen the righteous
forsaken, nor his descendants begging
bread" (Ps. 37:25). God is also generous.
He does not give carelessly or selfishly.
He opens His hand, and all of creation
is filled with good.

God controls life and death and
the changing seasons. "You hide Your
face, they are troubled; You take away
their breath, they die and return to
their dust. You send forth Your Spirit,
they are created; and You renew the face
of the earth" (vv. 29,30).
Spring is so beautiful, summer so
delightful and autumn so fruitful.
Then winter comes, and it seems so
dismal. But the same God of spring and
summer and autumn is the God of winter.
He brings the refreshing, renewing
springtime again.

God can renew your life today.
He can bring you seasons of fruitfulness
and seasons of sunshine.
Don't worry about the seasons of
life. The God who runs this universe can
manage the changing seasons of your life.
If you are in a winter season, wait;
when He is ready, God will send you a
