I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken. Psalm37:25 New King James Version
To be a servant of Jesus means we give up a lot of the worlds luxuries and most times just survive, all be it comfortably but frugally.
This is good because we learn to depend upon Jehovah for our daily needs. Because He generously supplies them we grow deeper and deeper in love with Him and develop a deeper respect for Him.
As we age and are no longer able to serve Him as we did when young we have no government pension to fall back on and most times no savings in the bank.
Through His love and grace Jehovah always supplies for us in our old age just as He did in our younger days.
Three times I worked hard, lived frugally and saved.
Three times I was wiped out. Since living for Christ, He has always supplied my every need (not necessarily my every want but definitely my every need).
Now I am getting old and my chance of getting a good work contract is nil.
In fear of my future I prayed to Him about my future with no money and no job.
Each time I did, there was a dream where I was led into an apartment. It was comfortable and spacious but the one thing there always hit me was the cupboards were always full and the lady that led there would look at me and smile and say:” This is yours.” She said it like I was not renting or purchasing the place but rather that is was given for me to live in all the rest of my days. Then I would wake up.
That day while doing Bible reading a verse like the one in this article would jump out at me.
I like Jehovahs retirement plan.
“Live to please God, and He will breathe on thee His peace. Seek His glory, and He will make thy heart His home. Do His will, and thereby good shall come to thee.” F. B. Meyer
Prayer: Thank You Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for always providing for Your child in his service to his loving King. Thank you for promising and keeping Your promise to always take care of Your children whom You cherish so deeply. I give thanks for this blessing in the name of He who taught about the birds in the sky Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
