hope2“And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.” (Genesis 22:13 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible)

My friend, Angela was working on her degree online and needed a small desk to work from. She saw one in Target for $149 that she liked but their family budget couldn’t handle that much money just for her. God knew her need and one day to her surprise she walked into Target and it was marked down to $19.44. She went to the register thinking perhaps it was a mistake, but sure enough it was accurate.

I have known Angela for 30+ years and watched her grow up in the church. She was helpful and faithful to a church planter and his family. Because of her faithfulness God was faithful to her.

Two needs and God supplied both. Abraham was in need of a sacrifice and God provided. Angela needed a desk and He made the way.

What is your need today? God is faithful to the faithful. You can always count of Him. He keeps records of faithfulness. It pays to be faithful!

Prayer: Down through the years, Lord, You have been faithful to me. You have supplied every need. I can testify to Your faithfulness. Amen!
