Perhaps God wanted me to have new appliances!!At least that is what my husband said.
Arriving at our new residence in Oklahoma, there were a few important items
missing!Among those details was a
refrigerator, and a washer and dryer, and, oh yes, a hide-a-bed.Our large ice chest would have to suffice
I told my husband that we would look in the classified ads,
and God would provide.The hide-a-bed
was obtained quickly!Now we had a place
to sit and to use as an extra bed for company.Finding a used refrigerator, washer and dryer was proving
difficult.Either there were none to be
found, or the prices were too high.What
In the local paper, Sears advertised Turbine Vents and their
installation for a certain price.As my
husband read, he realized that the installation would be easy, so he made a
visit to Sears and told them that he was there to help them.He informed them that he was a licensed
roofing contractor in California,
and could easily provide them with an insurance binder.They confessed that they were having a
problem catching up with the installations. With that, we had a job!
When I called the State of Oklahoma about a business license, they
informed me that none was needed to do small jobs.So, it was off to the print shop to get some
business cards that said, “OK Roofing” with our telephone number.
My new daily routine was to take the van to Sears, load up
the vents and secure the work sheets. Once at home, I stuck pins in a map for
each location, then set up a route.Each
customer was called to let them know that their job was scheduled for the
following day.If they were not going to
be home, I requested that they hang an extension cord out the window for our
use. The rest was up to my husband!
During the summer months, we helped Sears out, and managed
to earn enough cash to pay for new appliances!There was even money left over to shop for a few other items that we
needed.Praise the Lord for His
Money from Heaven?No! God does not drop money from heaven when you have a need.Often he provides by giving you work to earn
If you are in need of provision, take the matter to prayer,
and ask the Lord to confirm to you how to get that need met.He may show you a business that you can do,
or guide you to take some classes to expand your skill sets into a new field.Be open to His leading.
As for us, we have generally had to work, like the apostle
Paul did, to provide for our existence. Only a few times were we ever gifted
with offerings from individuals.
Many people dream of winning the Lottery, or holding a huge
cardboard check with their name on it!Often, they miss the other blessings God has sent their way.
I can say emphatically that it has been God who has given us
numerous bargains, discounts, rebates, and a score of other blessings –
including work, as means of provision.
Money from Heaven? No.Provision from Heaven?Yes!
