Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
This is the Christmas season and for me at this age of 59 years old with all my children grown now….it’s a time of reflection on the goodness of God and the many blessings He has given me. Some of my favorite blessings have been at Christmas time and I would like to share one with you today.
A year after my husband, myself and our 3 children (at the time…we had 3 more later) came to the Lord we started a ministry in our church called the Noah’s Ark Ministry which was an outreach to the poor and needy in our community. The Lord told my husband to quit his job and that He would take care of us and my husband did just what the Lord told Him. The pastor gave us an office and a room in the church for the food.
We had so many miracles of provisions for us from the Lord during this time and I will share more of them soon. We had no income but every week the Lord provided everything we needed. So it was Christmas and we had no extra money for Christmas presents for our kids. Someone knew about our faith walk with the Lord and contacted us through our church and said for us to not worry about things for our kids for Christmas…so we didn’t worry but got concerned when it was Christmas Eve because all the stores were closed and we truly had to trust God at this point for sure.
We were given an address to go to and my husband and I didn’t know what to expect, but we had seen God do a lot for us while serving Him in this ministry so we were excited to see what He was going to do next.
When we got to the house and were told to pull our station wagon up to the garage. A lady came out and we recognized her as a woman we had helped with a problem through the ministry. She said she would never forget how we helped her and her family and they proceeded to loaded our big old station wagon up with toys, food and gifts for us. She thanked us for helping her, hugged us and sent us on our way. When my husband and I got down the street and looked in back of us and saw our station wagon filled from the front to the back with all these presents… we praised God and laughed all the way home.
We had more this Christmas than we had ever had. It was a wild crazy, outrageous…in a good way…miracle from God…our provider!!!!!! But it didn’t stop there…. this woman and her family did this for us every year for the next few years that we served God in the Noah’s Ark Ministry and also did it every Thanksgiving with food too.
Oh my God is truly amazing!! Can I get an Amen here? Oh come on…let’s give God some praise right now!! I know you have miracles too!! Oh my God My God! Oh what happens when we put our trust in the Lord!!…Jesus!! Jesus!!
Jeremiah 17:7 But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him.
Message for today: Do you have a need today? Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart!! Our Father is Jehovah Jireh your provider!! Oh go ahead and throw your hands up in the air and shout “Hallelujah ….THANK YOU JESUS”! ! Don’t wait… Praise Him now..and wait expectantly for the blessing.
PS- This miracle happened 28 years ago and the woman who helped us has gone home to be with the Lord.
