Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, O LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.~~1 Chronicles 29:11
Did you notice the word “everything” in the above quote? That means everything. Our home, our car, our pets, our lives.
A few years back my husband and I were having some financial struggles. Amidst all of it, our furnace stopped working. In the middle of winter. In the middle of the coldest week of that winter. In the middle of a Sunday when even if we could afford the repairs, there was no one to call.
Instead of panicking, we looked at each other and had the same thought. It’s not OUR furnace anyways. Then we looked up and said “Hey God! Fix your furnace would you!”
We left it at that and headed out to what happened to be a bible study on managing your finances in a biblical way. We were gone about 3 hours. Not once did we think about our ailing furnace.
It wasn’t until later that evening when we had been home several hours that it occurred to us. The furnace was running! It had been running since we got home and we didn’t even realize it.
Why are we so surprised when God comes through for us? He never lets us down. Yet we are always so amazed when He shows us His faithfulness.
In the coming week, ask God to take care of that rattle in His car or that leaky faucet. Have faith! He will come through for you. It might be a sudden fix, or maybe it will be a financial solution to help you afford repairs; But He is faithful to the end.
Take some time to listen to this song and give it all to Him.
