If not, you can read about it here.
Anyway, in my life, a thousand dollars may as well be a million sometimes, but not to God. You see, my God is the God is that holds the stars in the sky, causes the grass to grow, and gives me air to breathe. Seems like a full-time job, but guess what? He still has a minute or two to care about my little life and yours too, if you’ll let Him.
Matthew 6:25-34a Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
I am convinced that God is just waiting for us to give Him the opportunity to provide our needs. Most of the time, we are too busy ‘fixing’ everything ourselves to give Him the chance. Now I am not saying He’ll rain money down from Heaven, but if you have a need, He does provide. I can give you a million personal examples, but I think the thousand dollars speaks for itself.
The thing is that when I was praying for the opportunity to earn an extra thousand this month, FringeMan got the work. No complaints from me, but he has been working like an army of ants that just found a watermelon.
