Bible Verse: “But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.” – Psalm 81:16, NIV

A Prayer to Have Faith God Will Provide
By Laura Bailey

I was introduced to a new praise song at a conference. The chorus was catchy, the lyrics easy to remember, and I sang the music as I went about my day. My daughter asked, “ What does honey in the rock mean?” I let out a little laugh and admitted, “I don’t know.” Has that ever happened to you? You find yourself singing the words to a song repeatedly but don’t take time to think about what they mean. I’d been humming this song for the past week, offering it as praise to our Heavenly Father but neglecting to understand its meaning.

Grateful for the gift of google, I typed in the lyrics and found Psalm 81:16, But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock, I would satisfy you.” Asaph, a worship leader during King David’s reign, wrote Psalm 81. God was reminding the Israelites that one of the blessings of their obedience was that he would “subdue their enemies( Psalm 81:16),” and would provide for his people at times in the most unlikely of ways.

When I think of places to find honey, a rock is not one of them. But just as God provided a sacrificial ram for Abraham ( Genesis 22:1-19), sent manna to the Israelites in the desert (Exodus 16), and fed thousands with five loaves and two fishes (John 6:1-14); God still provides for His people today. He doesn’t just meagerly meet our needs; He often provides in unexpected and miraculous ways!

God tells the Israelites that He will satisfy them, not with just anything, but with sweet honey. No matter what we are experiencing, we can have faith that the Lord is good; he longs to care for and provide for his children, genuinely fulfilling our needs. God tells the Israelites that He will satisfy them, not with just anything, but with sweet honey. Often when I struggled to see God moving or answering my prayers, I wondered if He cared about me. I wonder if you have ever felt that way?

The Lord wants to meet our needs and longs to have a personal relationship with us, satisfying our souls with the sweetness of an eternal relationship with Jesus Christ. As we go about our day, let us glorify and offer gratitude to our God. He always has a plan and is eager to provide for his children; He is a God who provides miraculously! Sing with me; He gives honey from the rock!

Let’s Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for being our ultimate provider. Thank you for all of the ways you have blessed me; ways I have failed to acknowledge were your divine providence in my life. Let me walk in faith when I struggle to see you working, question your goodness, or doubt your presence. Let my faith drive me to gratitude, remembering you always work things for our good and your glory.

Lord, help me be obedient and keep my mind focused on your will, leading a life of complete surrender. Guide me as I go about my day, not overlooking all the ways you work in my life and the lives of others. Help me not to limit you, and never underestimate your power and purpose. Let me rest in the knowledge that your ways are not mine; your thoughts are not mine. Lord, thank you for knowing what we need, for providing at just the right time, and for the many ways you care for us physically and spiritually. I love you, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
