Daily Devotional – 6/7/16 “A blessing in the doctor’s office!”

My momma sent me a text on yesterday that made my entire day. I’ll let her tell you. Look at the picture below …


My momma had no idea the miracle she just performed in that young lady’s life. And I told my momma that whether she knew it or not, she’d just passed a test of God. See, that young lady could have been suffering, spiritually yet she was saved by getting what she asked for. She could have been in a place of not understanding who God really is yet she found out about Him by getting a purse. She could have even been at a point where she was thinking of giving up on God yet God manifested Himself in that doctor’s office, in the front of all those people. Please understand, it wasn’t about the purse but it was about God’s purpose in who He has called us to be. It wasn’t about momma having 30 other purses at home because God is going to replenish that which she gave because she was faithful in her giving. Y’all, God is just and will supply all of our needs, if we ask! This is why the bible says in Matthew 7:7, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” This doesn’t mean that now you can beg to everybody for everything but it simply means you have to get to a place where you ask for what you need with the faith of knowing it’ll be done. Momma didn’t give because she wanted accolades or because she’s waiting on God to repay her yet she gave because she read in the bible where it says in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” I believe and know that momma gave because her heart told her too. Can you just imagine how greater things could be if all of God’s children operated in His calling this way? Think about it. If we, as Saints of God, would do our part, there would be no lack in getting what we need. If we simply did our part. Beloved, I don’t know about you but this blessed me down to my feet. I know God is real and for this young lady, she now knows it too. Thank you momma!
