It’s been a few years ago, but God reminds me of this incident every so often :
I went in a fast food restaurant, I ordered a hamburger with all the fixings, no mayo, large fry and drink. I was in a hurry, so I sat down long enough to put salt, pepper and ketchup on the fries just the way I like them. I was so ready for those fries. I was walking to my car I happened to notice a large number of birds just sitting in the parking lot like they were waiting for me. I was so focused on the birds that I tripped, all of those golden delicious fries went sailing into the sky and come to rest right in front of those hungry waiting birds. Matthew 6: 24 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. God has a sense of humor.
God knows, I say this to myself all the time. Stop worrying it won’t do you any good. Everything will work out for your good. As believers we know that God cares for us and he know what is best for us, but sometimes we allow the situations and circumstances in life distract us.
Last week I ran into a problem. I need some money right away. I hate borrowing money more than anything. I can’t think of a quicker way to ruin a friendship, but this time it couldn’t be helped. I was in a bind. I sat on the side of my bed, “Lord what am I going to do?’ There is a scripture in Isaiah
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21
If you don’t read or believe anything else that I have written, this is true. While i’m sitting there going Lord what am I going to do? I hear two peoples name in my ear. I sent both friends a text. Neither of them responded, at least right away. I’m sitting there, Lord I know I heard you whisper their names. So what did I do. I decided to go ahead of what I heard. I called my son, crying distraught. Of course he was concerned. He sent me the money to help me out, I thought that was the end of that.
While i’m on the phone whining with my son, I get a text message from the first friend that I sent the text message too. The message read: “Hey, didn’t you get the card I sent you?” I’m wondering what card she is referring to, My response: “What card. I haven’t gotten anything from you.” “Okay just wait it was probably delayed with the holiday, I sent the exact amount that you asked me for this morning, last week. I heard God say, send you this amount of money.” So Glad he knows, even before we ask. I’m so glad I serve a God that is alway prepared.
