God's Provision

Just recently I watched God answer a tremendous need in a close friend's life. It came at pretty much the last available moment.

Why does God's provision seem to come just before the bottom drops out?

If we look at the Story of Moses and the Israelites we can understand why. read full story

With the Red Sea before them and Pharaoh and his army behind them quickly gaining speed, Moses obeyed God and continued to direct the Israelites to the sea. Then came God's provision. The sea was divided and they walked on dry land. Pharoh and and army were wiped out.

If God's provision came in our own designated time frame it wouldn't build our faith in God. It would be more of a Christmas Gift senario than a rescue mission.

So the next time we hear ourselves utter the words,

"Lord, I'm going to need a miracle here!" let's believe. God opened the sea. He can open opportunities.

God Bless,
