If you have a need.....
Daily Word - Jan. 10, 2019
Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness.
Let the whole world know what he has done!
I remember when I was about 14 years old traveling in a greyhound bus with my family. Sometimes “pickings could be thin” if you know what I mean. Especially if you were a ministry family going from church to church and tent revival to tent revival. One time my mom decided to “sow in faith” and so she did with some corn. She was praying for a blessing in our food department. Well I do believe her faith worked because for some reason we had people everywhere we went giving us corn! We had cans and cases of corn given to us! I being a potato lover said “ Mom, why didn’t you sow potatoes?”
God answered her faith. Sometimes if you are needing an area of your life blessed it is good to “sow” out of that need.
Blessings and multiplication are something God is good at. I believe I shared a while back how God super naturally multiplied turkeys for us on the Lakota Reservation in South Dakota. To this day there is no explanation as to where the extra turkeys came from except from God! We had a need for more and God provided. As we reached and passed more out of the truck even though we were counting every one of them, the remaining amount grew. We had plenty for each community!
He has a strong history of providing in a time of need.
One more reminder of God’s provision. We were in the mountains of Nicaragua. We were running short on rice that was to be given out to the locals in each village we went to. I, my translator, and my lead pastor laid hands on our rice and asked God to multiply it. We made every stop that we had planned to make and gave out rice like we had planned. We never ran out which we should have! We returned that evening with rice left over!
You have a need? Ask God to help you, then listen to Him and do any thing He May ask, then watch Him bless and multiply for you!
Here is a poem God gave me about being raised under God’s wing:
Raised on a bus
Grew up under a gospel tent
Hammond organ and drums
That’s how it went
Taught how to trust Him
Seen it with my own eyes
The blind did see
The deaf did hear
And the lame were made to rise
The example of faith that my parents did show
Has lasted me thru hard times cause I know where to go
They taught me to ask, and fellowship with the Lord
Finding favor with Him just makes me want more!
I have seen a man with a gun
Changed by the Lord
He and his wife gave their hearts to the Lord
A Warlock with no power when faced by the Lord
He is God Jehovah
My King and my Lord
Freedom was there when the organ was played
it looked like a rodeo or so they did say
All the dust from the ground
rising up as they praised
It was said by some folks
That the Spirit of God came
“And the people were stacked like cord wood” was the description that was told
As the Holy Ghost fell on them just like in the Bible times of old.
