Psalm 111:1 (NIV) Praise the LORD.[b]I will extol the LORD with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. 2 Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them.3 Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever. 4 He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate. 5 He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.
Brief story: Cathy and her husband had two babies and barely got by on the tiny pension he received from the Navy. It took more than half their income just to pay the rent. Needless to say, the money often ran out before the month did. This is message is for someone depending on God to step in and make a way!
After one month, their financial situation was so bad Donna had no money left to buy laundry soap. She got on her knees and prayed, “God, I’ve never needed you like I need you now. I have nothing, and I need you to provide soap to wash these diapers.”
Hearing a noise at the front door, Donna got up to see who it was. Someone had left a promotional sample of soap on her doorstep. Some would call the provision a coincidence, but Donna knew it was an act of God, “a Divine’ coincidence”. Please be sure to read the passage for today, it shares another aspect of God’s provision.
Are you dealing with difficult circumstances? Have you talked to God about your challenges, and your needs? God wants you to come to Him and to rely upon the Lord for whatever you need today! Who do you depend on when things are not working out for you? I have learned to trust in Jesus, and I have learned to trust in God!
For His Kingdom,
