Main thought: Even when we fall into unbelief and wonder whether God cares, He still provides for us.  Let us never kindle His wrath by our lack of faith, but it His steadfast faithfulness that is constant.

Psalm 78:18–24
They tested God in their heart
    by demanding the food they craved.
They spoke against God, saying,
    “Can God spread a table in the wilderness?
He struck the rock so that water gushed out
    and streams overflowed.
Can he also give bread
    or provide meat for his people?”

Therefore, when the Lord heard, he was full of wrath;
    a fire was kindled against Jacob;
    his anger rose against Israel,
because they did not believe in God
    and did not trust his saving power.
Yet he commanded the skies above
    and opened the doors of heaven,
and he rained down on them manna to eat
    and gave them the grain of heaven.

Lord God of heaven and earth, You have provided for Your people through all ages and continue to uphold the world by the word of Your power.  Grant that we, who are weak in faith and fickle in mind may not live according to the poverty of our hearts but learn to trust You in all things as Your Son has won salvation for us through His blood.  Amen.
