Who Thinks This is a Coincidence?

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.

    Quite a coincidence for me! A friend wrote to me two days ago that she was reading this passage and thought of me and then I find your post! Thanks!

    I don’t think this is a coincidence, said on the morning when my husband went out to the garage to head to work only to discover his car is dead, dead, dead. Most sincerely dead.
    We have no idea what is wrong with it and no idea how we will fix it.
    Somehow, it will work out and He will provide a way…hanging on to that, dearly…
