“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him" (Matthew 6:8 NIV).
do you think of that: One morning you discover a brand new pair of
tennis shoes on your property placed by some anonymous somebody. You
don’t know who it is, but you sense right away that this is something
from God. Well, this happened to us and I was touched by this kind
provision from above. First I thought they were for me but as I tried
them on I realized they were too big for my feet. So my husband and I
put these shoes aside in our foyer. They were waiting there for a while
until a young man moved into our house. We are helping him “get back on
his feet” again.
One of the things we noticed right away was that he
urgently needed a new pair of shoes. The ones he was wearing were torn
up and also not fit for the cold season that was approaching. And you
know what? These new shoes fit him perfectly! They were waiting all
these weeks just for him, a person that needed a new pair of shoes. It’s
like an angel of the Lord just stopped by one day and dropped these
shoes off in advance for him.
Isn’t this just a
beautiful story of how the Father in Heaven knows what we need before we
even ask Him? Well in advance He knew that this young man was going to
stay with us and that he would need a new pair of shoes. He used a
person unknown to us to provide and put them in our yard.
your heavenly Father wants to reassure you that He knows what you need.
He knows all your emotional, physical, material and spiritual needs and
He wants to be the one that meets them all. The only requirement He
needs from you is that you put your entire trust in Him. So do not put
your trust away which has such a great reward. Wait upon the LORD and
the manifestation of His provision for you. I tell you the truth, your
trust in Him and your walk of faith will never be the same. Remember,
you serve an awesome God!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
