Hope you are having a good weekend and not hit by the tornadoes last night. So lovely to see the sunset later after the very black clouds disappeared. PTL!
Devotions from Judy’s heart
Just recently a friend called and said he had experienced a God-thing and we shared in his excitement and delight. I Love when I hear of such happenings, when you know that you know that it’s just all God and see His fingerprints all over it. But it wasn’t long after that I also experienced a God-thing and want to share with you. Some of you know, we have been serious about getting new phones and we asked our son for his suggestions for what would be good for two “old timers!” He suggested 3 different phones but when we went to get one, the first two stores had none of them in stock, and couldn’t order them either. So we ended up getting another brand and when we went to get them set up, the store was so crowded we left it for another day. Good thing because in the meantime, our daughter found out we could get on her plan and the monthly fee would be cut in half. So we were gladly took the phones back and planned to go with her provider. That night a verse of scripture came to me about asking the Lord and it struck me deeply that I needed to specifically ask the Lord for the right phone and see him provide. It says in Jer. 33:3 (The Message), “Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.” So I prayed and asked the Lord for His provision and that we would know the right one. I looked on-line and noticed they had only one of the phones Mark mentioned in stock. I also prayed that we wouldn’t have to wait a long time as our daughter and grandson were helping us. When we got to the store, we were the first ones and only one person came in after an hour. The higher priced phone our son suggested was in stock and they got them for us. I said to the manager, “It’s too bad you don’t have the other one as well.” and she answered. “We do and you can get two phones free!” What? It was a three-day promotional and we hit it perfectly and only had to pay the activation fee. We couldn’t believe it. My husband put his hands in the air and exclaimed, ”It’s raining blessings!” Truly it was. In my heart I began praising the Lord for answering above anything I could have asked or thought. The timing of everything was truly a God-thing!
Challenge for today: When you face a need, ask the Lord and let Him provide in His way and His timing.
Blessings on your weekend and prayers and love,
