God Provides – #10

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

God will provide. Rick and I had discussed our finances and how we would handle the bills when it was time for me to go out on Family Medical Leave (FMLA). I explained to Richard that I would not be getting paid while I was out on Family Medical and he would need to make his car payments. The medical bills were starting to roll in hot and heavy.  When I came home Friday night, Richard had sold his snow cone trailer and we had more than enough to take care of bills.  My first thought was toward using the money toward its original intent. I had told Rick a few years ago if we sold the trailer, he could use the money to get him a better travel trailer. Then I thought about tithing from my earnings. I was able to tithe more than my monthly tithe. God will provide. Sunday morning after I gave my testimony, I sang the song by Tamela Mann “God Provides”. Pastor Sheldon Williams preached the sermon “God Provides” found in Luke 7:1-7.  Some of the words to the song, “God provides, so why do I worry about my life, when you come to my rescue a thousand times”, “The little that I have He multiplies”, “Watch God provide”.

Later, I received a text from Richard, he was burden with everything going on with me medically. He also had an Aunt (his godmother) battling cancer. I tried to explain to him that we all have seasons we go through, how some are longer than others, and how he needed to learn how to give his burdens over to God. The next morning, we talked and I prayed for him. I told him the best counselor was Jesus and he needs to start giving his burdens to God. How he needed to ask for peace. I texted him these 3 scriptures: Matthew 6:9-13, Matthew 6:24-33 and Matthew 11:28-30. I asked him to let me know if he understood the words in Matthew 11:28-30.  God is not finished with us yet; we are all a work in progress.
