God Will Make A way

I am a banker and a pastor.  Recently, I was faced with the possibility of dismissal from my job.  My first reaction was fear and concern for my wife and our young son.  I was also upset because I felt like my possible dismissal meant that my work for the past four years at the organisation had not been sufficient.  I tried to act as if all were well when I was at work, but I was deeply troubled by my situation.

Before I went to sleep one night, I took my concerns to the Lord in prayer.  When I woke up the following morning, a word from the Lord came to remind me of God’s ability to feed the birds of the air and to clothe the lilies of the fields so they never have to worry.  This reminder of God’s blessings relieved the heaviness in my heart and reminded me of the possibilities and provisions of the Lord.  This insight continues to sustain my belief that God will provide for my needs even if I lose my job.

When we are faced with scary possibilities, it can be easy to worry and feel as if we are alone.  During times of worry and uncertainty, we can cast our cares on God.  The Lord opens pathways for us when we don’t see a way on our own.

Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for making a way for us.  Help us remember to trust you when we begin to worry or fear for our future.  Amen.
