“Give your food to the hungry and care for the homeless. Then your light will shine in the dark; your darkest hour will be like the noonday sun.” Isaiah 58:10 CEV
God always looks out for and takes care of the poor and needy. His heart is moved when we do the same. He tells us here that when we give food to the hungry and care for the homeless, our light will then shine in teh darkness and brightness will be all around us.
There is a direct relationship here with the glory of the Lord on our lives and taking care of the hungry and homeless. When we take care of the hurting and broken in society, God always takes care of us. When we provide for those who have nothing, God takes notice. He has always wanted His people to take care of the weakest among us.
Lord God Almighty, You are awesome and powerful! Your kingdom will never end. You delight when Your people take care of the needs of others around us. You are blessed when Your people are generous and loving, and kind. Help me to live a selfless life that helps others and blesses them. Enable me to take care of more orphans and widows though Word of Life and Hearts for the Harvest. I want to do Your will on the earth and I know this is big on Your mind always.
