I was at a Pastor friend of mine the other day and he shared something with me that is quite though provoking:
He said “Say you need $500 dollars urgently and a friend heard about this and called you and said “I will give you the money, you don’t need to pay it back, just take it, it’s a gift from me to you.”
We would be very happy, perhaps shout “Praise the Lord!” and rejoice that your needs were met. You have not received the money yet and between now and the time you actually get the money anything can happen. Yet you rest peaceful secure in the knowledge that you have the answer to your worries.
But When the same situation would arise and we hear a word from God say for example Phil 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
It’s a same promise but even more for he will not fail us. We have to meditate and sometime we say “hmmmmmm that is true. We need to believe God” There is no excitement. We don’t jump up and cry “Praise God! Or Hallelujah” I can rest secure in the knowledge that He will take care of it.
We worry, we stress we try to conceive some way to solve our problems!”
Why? Is God’s promise not good enough for us? Something we cant get excited about? His promises not as sure as a friend? His provision inadequate?
There is so many promises in His word. For healing, for provision, for health, for prosperity, for life!
Why don’t we jump up and get excited about His promises! Sing about them declare them with a voice of triumph!
