The Lord has us covered!

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

When Corrie Ten Boom (author of "The Hiding Place") was a little girl in Holland, her first realization of death came after a visit to the home of a neighbor who had died. It suddenly impressed her that some day her parents could also die. When Corrie went to her father about her concern, he comforted her with these words of wisdom. "Corrie, when you and I go to Amsterdam, when do I give you your ticket?" "Why, just before we get on the train," she replied. "Exactly," her father said, "and our wise Father in heaven knows when we're going to need things too. Don't run out ahead of Him, Corrie. When the time comes that some of us will have to die, you will look into your heart and find the strength you need–just in time."

Many of us don't think about it but we, as humans have such a problem with fear — fear that God won't come through when we're in need. We want insurance — insurance for our cars, insurance for our houses, for our health and for our lives. We want to be insured that we’ll be okay if something happens. It has become our way of life in the western world.

Now, we're not saying go and cancel all your insurance plans — but at the same time, God wants us to trust in His provision in our time of need! In our time here in Israel, we have truly learned the meaning of "never early, never late". Every single day since we have been here our faith has been tested and time and time again, God has provided for us in ways we could never conceive — physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially and in every other way — never early, never late — always just when we need it.

We need not fear anything that is before us. God will give us the strength to endure anything that comes our way. He has our ticket!

    You have a way of causing me to step back and look at things a little more clearly. Things that I know and need to focus on. Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;and lean not on thine own understanding.
    To trust that He has exactly what I need at every juncture, is priceless.

    Jesus will light the dark way, one step at a time! Just when I need Him, Jesus
    is there, Just when I need Him most!
