"The birds brought Elijah bread and meat every morning and evening, and he drank water from the stream.Ē (1 Kings 17:6)

There is no place, person, or time that are inaccessibility of Godís care. God is always available to his children. So donít worry or panic today for medical care, food, house, children, job or life's distressing challenges.
Luke 12:24 - "Look at the birds. They donít plant or harvest, they donít have store rooms or barns, but God feeds them. And you are worth much more than birds."
This understanding is beyond our perception and brain. Nobody can perceive how God assembles the equipment, the people and its handlers for your life's needs. On time to serve the needs of his people, God might have arranged everything in advance in the order of perfection. So blindly trust God and go on.
Psalm 91:11 - ďHe has put his angels in charge of you to watch over you where ever you go .Ē
So donít panic today. Put the worries on Jesus.
On November 2, 1994, a couple name Sandy and Theresa boarded TWA flight 265 in NY to fly to Orlando to see Disneyland. Theresa was 7 months pregnant. After half an hour of flying, she was in pain and began bleeding. Flight attendants announced that they needed a doctor and a Long Island internist volunteered. Theresa soon gave birth to a boy but the baby was in trouble. The umbilical cord was wrapped tightly around the neck and he wasnít breathing. His face was blue. Two Para medicals rushed forward to help, one of who specializes in infant respiratory procedures. He asked if anyone had a straw, which he wanted to use to suction the fluid from the babyís lungs; He first tied up the umbilical cord with a shoe lace and successfully did CPR with the straw. After four minutes of anxiousness, the little boy's cries cheered the couple and the people around. The parents named him Mathew which means 'God sent'. The people who helped on board the plane were all God sent.
Philippians 4:19 - ďMy God will use his wonderful riches in Christ Jesus to give you everything you need.Ē
Jesus, Let us trust in you always. Remove all worries and panic from our minds. Bless those who are in services for our needs. Let us all work together for the needs of others. May those who are in labor pains be comforted and have a smooth delivery . We pray for those who helped Theresa and her baby, Mathew. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
