    For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says Yahweh. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8 WEBThere were many times in my life that I worked something out in my mind, planned t...

    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we haven't sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. 1 John 1:8 WEBWhi...

    Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the clothing and the horse, as you have said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king's gate: let nothing fail of all that you have spoken. Then took Haman the clothing and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and caused him to ride thro...

How to Feed a Possum

  • Therefore, I tell you, don't be anxious for your life: what you will eat, or what you will drink; nor yet for your body, what you will wear. Isn't life more than food, and the body more than clothing? See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they? Matthew 6:25 WEB

    Painstakingly I hand rubbed four chicken breasts with olive oil, seasoned them carefully, pre-heated the grill to first sear them, and then slow cooked them over the flame, turning them back and forth until they were golden brown. After this, I placed my culinary creation on a plate, but as I turned and opened the door, three of them fell on the porch!

    I was not to happy about this, but I took the three that I dropped out to the edge of the woods by our home and we split the last one between us. The next morning they were all gone. An opossum and a stray dog had enjoyed a feast together. God had given them a banquet, and He'd had me prepare it for them, gourmet style.

    God takes care of the entire universe. If He will take care of a possum and a stray dog, how much more will He take care of you? So many times we get caught up in the fear of what may come tomorrow, but God must have taken care of you yesterday because you are here reading this.

    We panic because we do not trust God. Instead we put our trust in temporary things that can easily vanish or be taken from us like Laban did (Genesis 31:30). When trouble comes, so will the solution. When the need arises, so will the provision. You give your children what they need when the proper time comes, and so does God.

    Jesus told us 'But seek first God's Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well' (Matthew 6:33). This verse literally means: 'Ally yourself with God.' We are not to be distracted by material needs. As we work with God and do His will, our needs will be provided for. It is a leap of faith, it requires us to trust Him.

    God sees where you are today and He understands. While we worry and agonize, He is busy preparing something good for us. It is a beautiful thing when God turns the tide and we find that all of our worry and fear, was for nothing. I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? (Psalm 56:11).

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for providing for me. You know what I am facing here better than I do. I look to You for my help. Guide me and help me get involved in what You are doing on the earth today. I want to ally with You Lord, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Thank you for this reminder, I have been struggling with unemployment for the past 30 days and it is not easy.  I know God is with me and I do worry and I am also very scared.  The more I try, the more I feel as though the doors keep getting slammed in my face.  I must continue to trus the Lord and know that he is there with me every step of the way!
