Today I received a powerful lesson, using the simplest every-day example!
I am sure the following example happens to most of us. When this is used to teach us a spiritual lesson, we can be sure that the Spirit, who lives in believers (in Christ), is and has been speaking to us! What a privelege this is!
What I am talking about is the situation, when we are looking for something, anything really, expecting it to be in a certain place, and it isn’t, all the while missing the fact that it is right in front of us!
This happened to me this morning; I was looking for my cup of coffee, convinced it was in a certain place but it wasn’t. All of a sudden I realised that all that time it had been right in front of my nose! Simple, but powerful, if applied to the spiritual realm!
Take for example, (as this is a website set up primarily to help refugees) a refugee who has just landed in Italy, or Greece or Spain, originally boarding from anywhere in North Africa (most of the time Lybia). Most refugees set their sights on Germany, France etc. They are convinced that those countries will meet all their needs. So, all their efforts are applied to get to those countries. Can you see how my above example could apply to them? Are they believers in Christ? Is God limited in his provision? Could they be missing out on what God has prepared for them because of their expectations as to where the answer will come from?
This applies to every area of need.
Let’s not limit God. Instead, allow Him to prove that He cares and wants our best! Expect His provision in the most unlikely places and you won’t miss out!
