This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Hebrews 13:5 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how God will send for you.
Recently, I shared a story about a pastor and an assistant pastor who were starting a church. Just a few hours before their first informational meeting was about to start, they discovered they were short several tables and quite a few chairs.
The pastor was worried about appearing unprepared for their first meeting. However, the assistant pastor said, “‘Don’t worry. You continue working on your message for this evening. I’ll stop at home for a moment, and then I‘ll go out to find more tables and chairs.” Before they went their separate ways, they had a quick prayer, something like: God, please send us more tables and chairs.
The assistant pastor drove home, and as he pulled into his driveway, he noticed a U-Haul truck parked next door that was filled with tables and chairs. He couldn’t believe it! He knocked on the door and asked the man if he would be willing to rent him the tables and chairs. The man not only offered them for free, but he helped the pastor set up for the evening and ended up staying for the meeting himself.
After the meeting, the pastor was telling the story about the little miracle of the tables and chairs. The man who provided the tables and chairs overheard him and said, “That’s not the miracle. The miracle is with me. This has been a very low period for me. My wife and I are separated and my daughter is not handling our separation well. I didn’t know where to turn and God knew that, so He sent a pastor to my doorstep to get me. That’s the miracle.”
Since then, the man has reunited with his wife and daughter and they are doing well. This is a beautiful story and a great reminder that if you are ever too low to reach for God, He will reach for you. As you think about that, remember these words: “…I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, know that He’s reaching for you.
