This week has been one filled with reminders of God’s faithfulness. I need them, don’t you? Yes, we know He is faithful and we know that we are not forgotten.. but we need reminders. He is willing and able to provide them.
As I was out walking, praying, and asking God for someone I could talk with..a brand new friend came from the other direction in our valley. She was someone who could listen, someone who could speak into the situation, and someone who would pray for me. She did all three things..God is so good.
Later in that same day I found myself needing help once again.. as I was thinking about how I might extricate or change the direction of a conversation, someone I knew showed up to join in and suddenly the problem was solved. God’s perfect timing.
Both of these incidents may seem minor, but for me they were not. God’s ability to provide just what I needed jumped out at me as I reflected on His provision. He met me and rescued me.. He cares so much that he brought people just when I needed them.
In the bigger picture God will come for us wherever we are, with whatever we need. He sees us and knows when we can’t take another minute of our current circumstances. He is not late and we are not alone with unsolvable problems. He sees the future and will intervene just when we truly need it. He is ahead of us, behind us, and His arms are beneath us. He surrounds us and waits for us to trust Him fully.
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”’
