--When I was a single parent, I was working three part-time jobs trying to make ends meet. I had a young son to care for besides myself. I was living in a motel for the winter and times were hard.
I did the best I could and trusted God to help me. I guess I was worrying too. One night I woke up after hearing a male audible voice that spoke loudly, firmly and yet compassionately to me. The voice said, "You don't have to worry anymore." I was so startled that I sat up in the bed and looked around. I just knew someone had to be in the bedroom with me, yet no one was there. There was an awesome peace that came over me. The worry left and I knew that God was with my precious little boy David and me.
Yes, God did take care of us. We had our good times and our bad times, but God had let me know I did not need to fear anything.
Another time I had completely run out of groceries. I was determined I would not be a burden to my parents. I did not tell them of the need. Instead, I trusted God. That next day a Christian neighbor who lived across the street called and said that God told her to give me something. Isn't it great how God can speak to His people and allow them to bless others? She came over with bags and bags of groceries. She had no idea we needed the food. I was so happy, as you can imagine.
Yet another time I didn't have the money for my rent. I prayed and prayed. I had a peace that God was going to meet my needs before noon on the day it was due. At eleven o'clock that morning, the secretary from my church called. She told me there was a check for me covering the full amount of my rent. God had spoken to someone to bless me so that He could show His faithfulness to me once again. I was so thankful to God and to my church.
Whatever may be going on in your life today, know this: God loves you. He will be in control if you let Him. Speak to Him and then listen for His voice. Expect Him to take over the circumstances and know with great assuredness in your heart that He is going to meet your needs. Don't doubt or question His ability to provide. Feel His awesome love for you. Look and listen for His direction. God is still speaking today!
Can God change your life?
"When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God's marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope" (Ephesians 3:14-20 NLT).
