“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)
This summer we had a number of trees on our property cut down. The contractors cut the wood and stacked it at various places on the property. We needed to move the wood to the exterior of our property. However, my wife and I are not as young as we used to be and the task seemed overwhelming. We asked for some help, but no help seemed to be forthcoming.
Then God, in His timing, and in His way provided the help. A gentleman from my mid-week Bible study volunteered to help. He evaluated the project and determined the way I was doing it was not efficient. He brought a wheel barrow and began moving wood. I had been doing the wood prior to his arrival and was worn out. So I did the lawn. After completing the lawn I went inside for a few minutes to rest. When I looked outside there were three young people helping my friend. I went back out and the wood was moved within the hour.
The young people saw the need and came over to help. Then I asked their names. They were all Bible names. So I asked if they were Christians and they said “yes”. What a blessing.
God does supply all our needs in the most unusual ways.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) He certainly did for me.
So when things seem to overwhelm you, take it to the Lord and allow him to totally amaze you!
