I’m preparing for my 4th-6th grade girls’ Sunday School class tonight. We’re using the Desiring God curriculum: How Majestic Is Your Name?
Tomorrow we cover lesson 7: JEHOVAH-JIREH, The Lord Will Provide
I just read through all the stories I’m going to recount tomorrow, namely the story of the widow and Elijah and the jars of oil.
Yeah, ironic timing or a Message From The Lord?
I’m not worried about my van. I have plans to work on the mold tomorrow with my hazmat suit and some bleach. It has a full tank of gas and it runs just fine. It isn’t something we need replaced right now. Sometime soon? Perhaps. But do I believe God to be the JEHOVAH-JIREH now in 2009 or so I just believe He was the Lord Who Provided in the Old Testament?
Sometimes I do live that way. I do believe the Bible to be true. But sometimes I believe it to only be true for the time in which was written. I live in the land of do-it-yourself-and-maybe-just-maybe-if-you-ask-really-nicely-God-will-help-you.
I’m going to be asking my girls tomorrow to think about times with God has provided for them. I will be doing the same.
Because He is indeed, JEHOVAH-JIREH. And He will provide. For me. In 2009. And for you too.
