God Provides

Philippians 4:4-12

A young couple arrived at seminary with only a few dollars in their pockets. God had graciously provided the money for their move, and had opened the door for housing and employment. Now the only thing they needed was a stove for cooking. They managed by using a small heating unit, or by sharing the generosity of their neighbors, until they could purchase a used stove. Soon, however, they realized the stove’s oven wasn’t heating properly. “I guess I’ll have to start praying for another stove,” the wife said.

The very next day she was approached by a co-worker. “What’s your stove situation?” Barb inquired. When she heard about the non-working oven, she said, “We just remodeled our kitchen and replaced the appliances. I’d like to give you my stove.” It was just another way God provided for that young couple’s needs, and helped them grow in their faith.

Often, before we even begin praying, God is sending the answer. We can rest in His peace today. He’s already sending what we need.
