THE FEAR OF HUNGER
Why are we so afraid of getting hungry?
The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry, but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.
Salin sa Magandang Balita Biblia:
"Ang matuwid ay binibigyan ni Yahweh ng kasiyahan, ngunit ang masama’y kanyang ginugutom naman."
Walking down the aisle, taking the hand of the man I love in marriage, one of the things I worry about is…”What if we get hungry?” I had that thought without thinking that it is not only food that would keep us alive but I know very well that it is essential to keep our human body nurtured.
God did provide me what I need. My husband, who was raised by a God fearing mother, is a good provider but I also work to help him.
It is not easy to provide the things our children needs in order to have an average life. We were not so fortunate to have so much to be considered “rich” like others. We did not live an extravagant life but we did not experience hunger. In fact, I gained a lot of weight for eating! … so, there is really nothing to fear about hunger after all! I also learned through my daily journal that we should not want more than what we need in order to have a peaceful life.
Food is essential but it is not everything although it is one concern that most people get busy with nowadays. We also need to have love, hope, dreams and faith in order to survive and everything…God will provide.
In life, we have many challenge, my husband was opting to leave his job soon. This is one challenge that I would need a lot of faith.
“Would I worry about hunger again?”I should not.
I should trust God will not let us go hungry as long as we keep on working and try to live in accordance to His will. We have to work for a living…No matter how hard life is, I should have faith in God, avoid wickedness and never fear of getting hungry again.
Our Heavenly Father, Thank you for providing everything we need. Help us be a good follower. Keep us from worrying about having food to eat everyday and help us gain strength to keep on doing what you wish us to do. Let us have opportunities to find so much blessing that we may not be able to live for ourselves but to enable us to share our blessings with those who are in need. Keep us away from harm and wickedness, Dear Lord. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
We need not to worry about food as long as we have faith and the willingness to act in accordance to God’s will.
