Two weeks ago I was walking into the kitchen, and I noticed my six year old standing in a chair jumping towards my husband without warning. My husband instinct was to immediately catch him, and he did. My husband was standing there trying to watch the rest of the sports highlights so after a couple of times of just jumping into mid-air with no warning my husband turned to my son and said, “calm down son. What makes you think I’m going to keep catching you?” Then my son put on the biggest smile and said boldly, “because you my daddy that’s why.” Immediately, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said that’s how I want you to be. Just know that I’m your father and I will catch you! I will never let you hit the ground. God says in his word he wants us to have child like faith. “verily I say to unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein” Mark 10:14.
Last year in January my husband was in a car accident that caused him to have seizures just about every week, therefore he was unable to return back to work. His income was cut by 70%. Needless to say, I only work 21 hours a week. God had spoken to us both and told us that no mater what it looked like, He would provide! He did just that! It has been a whole year and God has supernaturally provided for us in ways we would have never imagined! None of our utilities have been turned off, car note and other expenses have been paid.
This month was the first month we did not have all the rent money, but my husband was led by the Holy Spirit to call our landlord . He told her about why he has not been working the past year. She was amazed that we was able to pay all our rent up till now. We have never been late on rent at all. God gave us favor with her. She hung up with my husband and made a phone call to an agency that normally requires you to put in an application for assistance, but the agency told our landlord that she did not need to know my husband name, nevertheless need him to put in an application. The agency said that they were writing a check for a certain amount right now sending to our landlord on our behalf. Also, they will be assisting us for the next three months and there will be no penalties or late fees. Our landlord is also planning on moving us into a bigger house to meet my growing family needs. Only God can do something so amazing! I thank God that my husband took that leap of faith! We have not because we ask not. (James 4:2) Trusting God has not always been easy, especially when we could not always see a way. We had to walk by faith and not by sight. At times that was scary. But, God was only strengthening our faith and working things out for our good. Thank you Jesus! Praise His mighty name!
Thought to ponder:
When was the last time you let go and completely trusted God?
Action to take:
Many people don’t act in faith because of fear.
Let go of fear. God did not give us the spirit of fear. he gave us power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). Fear is sent by the enemy to paralyze us. Start keeping a journal of all the wonderful things God is doing in your life and all the prayers he has answered. So, the next time that your faith is tested, check God’s record! Also, find scriptures to meditate on to help increase your faith.
Verse to meditate on:
Mark 11:22-23 (NKJV)
So JESUS answered and said to them, “Have Faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, be removed and be cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that this things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Prayer to pray:
Father God you are Jehovah Jireh, my provider! You are my prince of peace! Forgive me for not trusting you like I should. Thank you for always being there to catch me when I thought I was going to fall. Father God you said in your word that whatever things I ask when I pray, believe that I have received them, and I will have them. So, Lord I pray that you bless me Indeed and enlarge my territory. Keep your hands on me and keep me from evil. It’s in Jesus name I pray, Amen.
