We all like to know where our next meal is coming from and where we will spend the night. The disciples that Jesus sent out knew neither of these. They were totally dependent on providence – not a position anyone likes to be in. They come back rejoicing because all they needed was provided. Their faith in the Lord was vindicated. We too need to be prepared to trust in God’s providence which can take us by surprise.
