Philippians 4:19 – But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (KJV)
God is always faithful in both the largest and the smallest things of my life. During my second pregnancy, my fingers swelled so much that I needed to remove my wedding rings before they cut into my finger. At the time, I placed them securely over a decorative dresser post. Months went by, the baby was born, and I was distracted by this wonderful creature, not giving the rings another thought.
When the rings came to mind, I couldn't remember where I had placed them. I frantically searched the house. Finally, in tears, I sat on the edge of the bed and prayed. I asked God to help me to find them, giving thanks that He would. When I looked up, the light streamed through the window, directly on the rings. They were still right where I had placed them months before.
There have been other times when I have misplaced important things, and perhaps you have, too. Think of the joy when a chequebook is found underneath an area rug, or the relief when a lost cheque is discovered. We pray, "Thank You, Lord!" When we walk in the presence of God, we can communicate with Him throughout the day about everything. I never feel stronger than when I sense the Holy Spirit in me and surrounding me. Our gratitude to God can be unlimited.
Through our experiences with lost and found items, the Holy Spirit teaches us to pray for help, to be organized, and to stay focused. I cherish His faithfulness in all circumstances. His eagle vision is much better than ours.
Prayer: Dear Lord, You supply our every need. Not only can You find and save lost souls, but You can locate lost items and shine Your light on them so that they can be found again. We pray that You will remind us to ask You for help when we need it. Amen.
