GOD Always Provides for His Plans and Missions

Postby eaglelion » Thu Jun 14, 2012 9:10 am

Hi -

Recently, our Lord told me to do something; my response was that I didn't know how to do it.
He responded that Noah didn't know how to build the ark until GOD gave him instructions.

Wow! That was certainly a wake up call for me.

Noah had no blueprints, mentors, or case studies. What he did have was GOD as Creator and
Ark - i - tect.

Wow!

Surely, He who calls will surely provide, He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, more than we imagine.

This is perfect timing for me. My son wanted to go to Urbana this year. It's a retreat or conference with about 20,000 college age kids from all over. He has felt God calling him to attend but I worried about the cost. My son reminded me that it is God's money and he needed to be obedient. It took some fanagaling but we managed. He was supposed to leave yesterday early afternoon. The blizzard has stopped him. We ha BC e close to a foot of snow and its not supposed to let up for another 10 hours but like your post reminded me if it is Gods plan it will work.

Actually, things went quite well for him. They left about 16 hours later than originally planned. He had forgotten that the conference was in the Central time zone, so they were only about an hour late rather than two which was a pleasant surprise. They didn't have any issues with traveling. He had a marvelous week and an awesome experience.

He is presently pursuing his Masters at Duke's School of Divinity. He marveled at the organization of Urbana and how well everything was planned. This will come in quite handy when he becomes an ordained UM minister.

I am humbled when my kids teach me a lesson. I think it shows me that I've done a good job with them when they remind me to have faith. When Q first mentioned Urbana, my immediate response was "How will you afford it?"

His answer humbled me. "It's not my money, it belongs to God and if he tells me I should do this then I have to listen to him, knowing that he will make it possible."

We had similar discussions when he told me he was going to Duke. The cost!(Not to mention the 13 hour road trip that separates me from him.) My youngest went on Mission of Peace to Nicaragua last year. When she first mentioned it, I never thought we could come up with the $4,000 in 6 months. She had all the money raised in just over 4. When she wanted to go to a particular college, I again worried about the money. Can't you go to a state school? But I called financial aid and they offered her more money that was very close to the total amount she needed. When she replied see God took care of it, again I was humbled.

I tend to be a worrier, but every time God answers in ways I would never imagine. :bow

Hi Shann -

Thank you so much for sharing those experiences and how our Lord has helped you and your family.

Those testimonies certainly inspired, encouraged and reminded that whatever it is, it's not bigger than GOD. High praises to His awesome and mighty name!
