God's Provisions

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

My friend “Sally” is a single mom with a teenage son and is working hard to complete a college education. Sally has had one of the most difficult lives that I know about. She’s from a dysfunctional family, dropped out of high school, married young and had a baby soon afterward. Her former husband was abusive.

Finally, Sally could take no more and left with her son. She cleaned houses for a living. After becoming a Christian, Sally received wise counsel from several ladies who grew to love her. I am one of those ladies. She now has one more year of school and continues to clean houses for her income. Of course, Sally has financial difficulties and has to deal with a sometimes-rebellious son.

Sally’s faith is amazing. Even though she seems to go from one difficult situation to another, she still trusts God for financial provisions and for strength to keep up her heavy schedule. She works really hard to provide a stable home for her and her son. Of course, Satan is always knocking on her door, trying to get her to give up and turn to the world.

Notice in our Scripture for today that God promises His presence. He promises to strengthen us. He promises to uphold us and to help us. Sally claims each of these promises. She gives God the glory for His provisions. Her testimony is a blessing to all who know her.

What is your need? Give your need to God and trust Him to meet it. No need is too small or too large for God. He is the God of compassion and abundance. Follow Sally’s example.

Thank you, Father, for all of your provisions. I pray that I will always trust You for all of my needs
