    Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, "So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I don't make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time!" When he saw that, he arose,...

Something from Nothing

  • But, lest we cause them to stumble, go to the sea, cast a hook, and take up the first fish that comes up. When you have opened its mouth, you will find a stater coin. Take that, and give it to them for me and you. Matthew 17:27 WEB.

    When Jesus and Peter returned home to Capernaum, the tax collectors asked Peter for the temple tax, which all Israelites over 20 years of age had to pay annually. They began collecting this tax about a month before Passover, and they used this two-drachma tax to pay for the repairs and maintenance of the temple in Jerusalem.

    Apparently, Peter and Jesus didn't have that much money with them. So Jesus told Peter to go fishing and that the first fish he caught would have a silver stater coin in its mouth, which was equal to four drachmas. He could then use that coin to pay the temple tax for them both. What are the chances of that happening? I grew up fishing and never caught one like that.

    Yet once, when I was out of work for a season, I really needed two-hundred-fifty dollars to pay a bill and had no way to get it. After coming home from church that Sunday, I found an envelope tucked into my Bible. When I opened it, I found two hundred and fifty dollars inside. I still don't know who did it, but they had certainly heard from the Lord.

    We like to be self-sustaining, and to have to depend on others is a struggle. It's certainly more blessed to be able to give than to have to receive. But when you find that you have to depend on God, you will find that He is more than enough. So today, if you find yourself in a tight spot, know that He can help you. So don't give up. God Almighty is well able to bring something out of nothing.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, You know my needs before I even ask, and You know the things I face. Please provide for me and boost my faith along the way. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.' (Philippians 4:6-7) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

AMEN!!! Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You as a little child, as You gave me such a caring and loving father whom I lovingly called Papa, who met all my needs especially when I was  young and as a little child and kept me from harm!! So I now call You not just and merely "Father" but also "PAPA", my Heavenly Papa, because I know that You have so much love in Your heart, when there is no greater love than Yours!! It was Your arm that brought redemption to Your own creation who willfully sinned against You, including myself, but You still loved!! You gave Your one and only son to suffer and die for us, our Savior Jesus Christ, and as He arose we will rise again at the appointed time!! You gave us hope, a living and eternal hope and all I can say thank-YOU from the bottom of my heart!!! (h5) (L)
