Have you ever needed something badly but just couldn’t justify spending the money?
We are in need of a car. Now, that’s not a small purchase so we are really praying and waiting on God’s direction. We want to be good stewards of what God has given us and don’t want to stretch ourselves out of God’s will.
Matthew 7:7 tells us: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For
everyone who ask receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Now keep in mind that doesn’t mean we get everything our little heart’s desire. It must be within God’s will for our lives.
Matthew continues with: “Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”
Simple…we are sinners and give willingly to our loved ones, how much MORE will our heavenly father, who is without sin, gives us if we ask!
Now, we’ve been asking for God’s direction on this issue for
about 2 years. Yea, that’s a long time by most standards but we know that God has a plan for our lives. (Jeremiah29:11, NIV)
When you don’t get the response you want within a certain time…wait! Silence in your life and mine is always good. God is asking…do you want your best or MINE!
God supplied our request for a vehicle this morning! It’s a beautiful car, within our budget and we couldn’t be happier. Just think what would have happened if we stepped out on our own…Thank You, Lord for your provision.
God does care about the little things in our lives!! Deb~
