Shirdi Sai says it is his special characteristic to always look to, and provide for, welfare of devotees who worship Him whole-heartedly

Shirdi Sai Satcharita, has the following words of Shirdi Sai Baba  in Chapter VI, page 32 (paper version of book):

"There will never be any dearth or scarcity, regarding food and clothes, in My devotees’ homes. It is my special characteristic, that I always look to, and provide for, the welfare of those devotees, who worship Me whole-heartedly with their minds ever fixed on Me. Lord Krishna has also said the same in the Gita. Therefore, strive not much for food and clothes. If you want anything, beg of the Lord, renounce worldly honours, try to get Lord’s grace and blessings, and be honoured in His Court. Do not be deluded by worldly honour. The form of the Deity should be firmly fixed in the mind. Let all the senses and mind be ever devoted to the worship of the Lord, let there be no attraction for any other thing. Fix the mind in remembering Me always, so that it will not wander elsewhere, towards body, wealth and home. Then it will be calm, peaceful and care-free. This is the sign of the mind being well engaged in good company. If the mind is vagrant, it cannot be called well-merged in Him."
