Happy Monday. “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” Matthew 10:30
In my garage today is a brand new, metallic grey car, pretty, runs so smoothly, and, yes, has the “new car” smell.
And now, “the rest of the story.”
I really wasn’t wanting a car. My old one had been my comfortable mode of transportation for seven years, still pretty.
I had prayed for a while that God would show me His thoughts. No bolt of lightning hit, not even a whisper.
The day came, Becky and husband Tim took me to a dealer to look. (Don’t look if you don’t want to buy.)
The right car was waiting with still no revelation I needed. But, hey, I was ready!
The day my car was to be delivered I ran errands in my old “friend,” then home to await the new one.
Delivery was made, paperwork done, and I went to back out of my garage to make room for the new.
My car wouldn’t start, not even a “grunt.”
I THINK I saw my car wink at me.
I THINK I heard it say, “I’m the bolt of lightning you’ve been looking for.”
As my care of seven years was towed, I thanked God for the care He has for all the details of my life…and yours!
I hope you get the point of my telling this story. He cares for you!
Oh, you might not get a new car or a new anything else. But you are breathing His air, living life He has given you, because, “you are of more value than many sparrows.”
Don’t hesitate to go to the Father with all the needs you have, however mundane they seem.
He wants to provide our daily bread (needs).
As author Max Lucado puts it:
“If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.
You’re the apple of His eye and the delight of His heart.”
