How long do you have to hold onto your faith and trust in the Divine? All of the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, actions and behaviors that you experience chip away at your faith and trust when you allow them. Do you leap toward the worst possible outcome as the only option available to you? Or do you stand firm on the divine promise of protection?
Recently, a friend of mine who has kids and works as a nurse had cashed her paycheck and returned to work. She had some bills to pay in cash and somehow her $900 in cash was stolen.No one came forward and she didn’t know what to do. I saw her and said to her that somehow, God would bring another opportunity for her to make more than that.
God’s omniverse might appear to be chaotic, but Divine order moves natural order to unfold our Divine purposes. She is still trying to make up for this loss. When she found out that last year my wife and I were facing the possibility of losing our home, she boldly offered to take a title loan out on her car to help us. Here is a woman who suffered a great loss personally from her perspective and offered us help. I burst out in tears because of the love and giving in this woman’s heart. I graciously thanked her and turned her down becausewe know that there will be another way. However, to know that someone who has very little was willing to put herself on the line brought me to tears.
There are good people in this world; in fact, there are GREAT people in this world! Hold onto your faith and trust in the Divine. How long you might ask? Until the eleventh hour, the fifty-ninth minute and the fifty-ninth second! When the clock strikes twelve the mercy and protection of God will come ushering forward and you will know just how great the Divine is and how great his children are.
This woman had to go back to Africa and help her family. She had no money and one of the ladies that she worked for gave her the money to fly home and help her family. God works in ways that we might not see or understand but we should always know that we are provided for and loved. The Divine orchestrated the blessing of us being able to keep our home as well.
Thank God for all that unfolds and you will be blessed with the peace, understanding and joy that Divine love brings. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
