I received some distressing financial news today. This is one of those days when I have to call on the Father to make a way when no way seems apparent.
I also need to rehearse the concepts from St. Matthew 6th chapter. If God took care of the lilies and the grass then surely He will supply the need. I think, too, of the woman in the Old Testament who needed money to pay her debts. Elisha the prophet told her to get all the jars she had in her house. She was even instructed to borrow jars from her neighbors. The little oil she had multiplied until she had filled all the jars in the house. She was able to pay the debt and live off the rest. (II Kings 4:1-7)
God is a god of multiplication!
(Writing this post has helped me feel better. Yet please pray to God for me that I will keep my eyes on Him, remember the magnitude of His resources, look for the manifestation of those resources on my behalf, and that I will love Him no matter what He chooses to allow.)
