    For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence firm to the end, while it is said, "Today if you will hear his voice, don't harden your hearts, as in the rebellion." For who, when they heard, rebelled? Wasn't it all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? Hebrew...

The Okidata

  • Don't seek what you will eat or what you will drink; neither be anxious. For the nations of the world seek after all of these things, but your Father knows that you need these things. But seek God's Kingdom, and all these things will be added to you. Luke 12:29-31 WEB.

    The Lord once doubled some of our computer equipment here at the office. At the time, we ran a small computer service company on a tight budget. We had an Okidata C5150 color laser printer and two 21-inch Sony Trinitron monitors that we used daily. It was decent equipment for the time.

    During our first service call of the day, the office manager there gave us another Okidata C5150 color laser printer just like the one we had. Along with a full set of toner cartridges and another unopened set. They just said they didn't need it and helped us load it all into our truck. We felt very blessed, as color laserjets were rare here then, and the toner cartridges for them were several hundred dollars.

    At our next stop, the office there gave us two more 21-inch Sony Trinitron monitors exactly like the ones we had back at the office. Sylvia and I could now run dual monitors! So in one day, the Lord 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 don't know why He chose to do that, but we used that equipment for years, and we never ran out of toner. Our God is Awesome, and He takes care of His people, even their printers.

    Prayer: Heavenly 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 Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: Ladies, today is Thankful Thursday at the "Ladies in Distress" group (our RHM women's group)! You are welcome to join in our weekly sharing of thankfulness for the Lord's presence and any blessings you may have experienced, big or small! "Ladies in Distress" is a private group, so if you have any problems joining, just post anywhere and we will help you :). Here is the link: Ladies in Distress

These past months have been tough, trying to get used to a fixed income (S.S. Disability), but though I get antsy at times and my "man side" starts to worry, God keeps telling me, "calm down, I got you". Me: "But Lord, I need gas money, I need to pay this bill or that bill, I need, I need!!!", and yet, I hear Him in my heart, in the Spirit tell me He will handle it. My wife started working 2 weeks ago, I had a full tank of gas in our car, I have been watching the gas gauge go down every day and watching the monitor that tells me how many miles I have to go on the gas that's left. Yesterday I was at 19 miles, my wife's check doesn't hit her bank account till Friday midnight,  yes, I was sweating. Monday, I called a friend for a loan, she didn't sound to 'anxious' and later told me that she "deposited a bunch of checks" as soon as those clear, I'll let you know. Well, since I spoke with her I keep hearing the Spirit tell me that i do not need to borrow from her, that it is not from the heart....so, i haven't heard from her since, it's all good. As i was sweating bullets last night (man side), i recieved an order for my candies that i make and sell from home, i hadn't seen an order in over 3 weeks, but last night it came in, $25.00 straight to my account, just enough to put gas in my car and make it to Friday night and beyond!!! HALLELUJAH!!, HALLELUJAH!!!, HALLELUJAH!!! God never has left me, He has never let me down. Yes, I am behind on everything,  yes, He will make me sweat it out a bit, but in the end, HE WILL COME THROUGH, one way or another. Thank you God, in Jesus's holy name!!!!

Through this message Father God confirmed exactly what we discussed in our small group last night about focusing on Him always. Keeping Him first above all our problems or needs. The Lord was truly there with us like He said, "When two or more are gathered together in My name, there I am with them." Praise the Lord Yeshua Christ!
