Christ knows and supplies our need

Matthew 8:1

A little lad, during the American war, was his widowed mother’s comfort and joy.

One day, as the poor woman was trying to scrape the flour from the sides and bottom of the barrel to help out the day’s supply, the lad cried, “Mother, we shall have some more very soon, I know!

“Why do you say so, my boy?” asked the mother. “Why, because you’ve got to scraping the barrel. I believe God always hears you scraping the barrel, and that’s a sign to Him you want another.”

And before the day was over the fresh supply had come.
