My neighbor has a very prolific lime tree part of which hangs over onto my side of the fence. When it is in season, every morning without fail I would pick up six or seven limes. I love lemonade and I use them in almost every drink I make. One day, I went into the garden and saw no limes on the ground and simply accepted the fact that thee was to be no limes today. I heard the Lord say “Aren’t you going to look for limes?” I said, “But I see none on the ground” His response was “does that mean I have stopped providing?”
I thought about it and realized the He never stops providing. As I looked in the top of the tree there was such an abundance of limes on my side of the fence! All that was required was some effort on my part. I picked so many that day that I simply juiced them all and froze them for later use.
The Lord provides for us at all times. Sometimes we get so used to the easy provision that we forget that we need to look up. The easy pickings, the low hanging fruit will be finished one day. We have to make the effort to pick the fruit on the upper limbs.
