    The God who made the world and all things in it, he, being Lord of heaven and earth, doesn't dwell in temples made with hands, neither is he served by men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he himself gives to all life and breath, and all things. Acts 17:24 WEBWhen I was growing up, we us...

The Okidata

  • When a man's ways please the LORD, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Proverbs 16:7 ESV

    Once during a season of special favor, the Lord doubled some of our computer equipment. At the time, we ran a small computer service company on a tight budget and owned an Okidata C5150 color laser printer and two 21-inch Sony Trinitron monitors that we used daily. It was decent equipment for the era.

    During our first service call of the day, the office manager gave us an Okidata C5150 color laser printer just like we had, a full set of toner cartridges for it and another set that was unopened. They said that they did not need it, and helped us load it all into our truck. We felt blessed.

    At our next stop, the office there gave us two 21-inch Sony Trinitron monitors just like we had. In one day the Lord had duplicated our office equipment with the same model numbers from two different places.

    When you set your focus on the Lord, He will take care of you. I do not know why He chose to do that, but years later we still use that printer that He gave us and we have not run out of toner yet. God is Awesome and He takes care of His people, even their printers.

    Prayer: Father, I choose to seek You first. Please be with me this day. Follow me wherever I go and teach me to be sensitive to your presence, in the name of Jesus.

Amen thank you for your message Pastor Dion,,@ It's so easy to lose focus this time of year when all around us we are bombarded with the adds of buying all the gifts.  It used to get me very stressed out when I was a painting contractor as it was always the slowest time of year.  Now I am on disability and have a limited income I am always thankful for the things I do have.  God's. greatest gift was sending his only begotten son Jesus Christ for all of us! This is where our focus should be!

Amen this is something that I and my Husband were going through but I have turned it over to our Father God. I got sick and tired of being sick and tired. The worrying and everything took its toll on me, I realized that I wasn't trusting our Father and that I was being independant... I am glad the good Lord was showing this to me because then i started giving it all to Him praising Him for the good and even the bad... things have gotten a lot better and reading this today has put it in prospective and reminding me He is in control and that He got's my back at all times praise God :D I am in constant prayer for my Husband especially for him to trust and give it up to our Father God. I love yall guys thanks for helping me out and thank you for sharing life with me and us serving God together. God bless you all <3 Thank you for all the things that you do it blesses me and those around me everyday i share because i care <3

What an awesome God. Remind me of the woman who prepared her last meal for the man of God, and because of that her barrel never ran out.  But you know the story
