This May be Hard for You

PROVISION

This may be hard for you to believe, but is true.

I tell you, do not worry about your life…Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” Matthew 6:25-26 New International Version

This is a tough one.

Many times in my life I have experienced great difficulties.

One time being unemployed and having no money I had to collect pop bottles and beer bottles in ditches to get enough money to buy a loaf of bread and jar of honey to live off of for week. It ended up for my own good as that was necessary to get me to move to a different city where there were jobs. Through it all though, even though I didn’t know it Jesus was taking care of me. He just had to use a severe method to get me to do what was good for me.

When we lose our job or have an accident and cannot support ourselves we worry. We worry about our retirement plans.

Why?

Does it change the situation?

No!

Now, many decades later I have learned to always put my trust in our Abba in Heaven. I know now that He loves me and takes care of me. As long as I am walking in the path He has chosen for me He has always provided for me.

If it seems as if God is far from you and is not helping you, perhaps you should ask God if you are in the wrong place or doing the wrong thing. If so, of course He will hold back His precious gift for you.

If not, then He is using this difficult time to teach you so you will grow even closer to Him.

Prayer: Even though the many times on the potter’s wheel have been difficult, I thank you Jehovah Elohim (God our creator) for molding me into the vessel You can use in Your marvelous kingdom.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Nice. Simple. Anecdotal and true. Thanks.

  2. This post is very much needed today! I have just entered into a work transition time! And possibly living situation transition as well, depending on what He provides for work next. I know He wants me to not be afraid or anxious. I have to stop myself from trying to “instantly fix” the situation by my own efforts just because I don’t like the uncomfortable feeling of not know what is coming next. 😛 A friend advised me to write down some things, including what I think God wants to do in this time. It really helps calm me down to know He is there, He does not want me to fear, and He has never let me fall out of His care!

  3. Beautiful post! I needed this post today as I have been in kind of transitional period in my own life as well for some time now.
