While my husband and I were in business-- cash-flow or the lack of it was always an issue. One particular instance I remember the funds were lacking and just like the disciples needin to feed five thousand mena and women, I didn't see where it was going to come from. We needed ten thousand by Friday--once again....And my mind was racing to make an earthly way. That is when my husband said to me " So you think He is not going to give you the answer this time?".
It was a question that I have heard echo many times since then. Do you think that the God of the Universe, who created you for His pleasure, is going to keep any good thing from you--if you seek Him?
Many months before we were visiting Wm's family and helped remodel their kitchen. We took a small break & went shopping....I stopped at a store and saw an outrageous metal piece of wall art with a man holding a coffee cup over his head...it was almost $500. I said 'the only way I would buy that is if I had all the money in the world"...well I got home that Tuesday 4 months later and there was a UPS box at my door..I opened it & it was that lamp...God spoke to me & said "I have all the money in the world" .
So now when I get in a jam...they seem to keep coming....I turn on that lamp and realize that I can rest, not in my comings and goings, but in His call for me to follow HIs lead--knowing He will provide--He can pull a coin out of a fish, divide bread for 5000 or turn water into wine. I can REST in His call and my hearing and heeding that call---because His call is not a journey to somday, but a resting place called NOW.
Is God good, does He want good for you? That is the true place of rest for any Christ follower. Foxes have holes, birds have nests, and we can rest knowing that God is multiplying bread and fish for us, if we sit and wait on Him to do it.
