Adam: “Hi Honey.”
Adam: “What were we just talking about and praying for?”
“Lots of things.”
“Well, one prayer got answered. I just walked out of Aldi and under my windshield wiper was 16 stamps.”
Silence. I couldn’t talk through the tears.
We have a newsletter for The Devine Inspirations that we have been working on for a year. Each time that an experience touched us we prayed and wrote, sometimes waking up at 3:00 am to write. We pieced the newsletter together and developed a list of 1500 addresses. We have it ready, with one exception; no stamps. We’ve hand delivered about 150 newsletters and prayed that God would provide the means to get the rest sent out. Some people heard of our prayers and we were given $10.00 for stamps here and $5.00 for stamps there. Each time is a blessing and we joyfully pray over the batch that is able to then be mailed.
This is wonderful, but God is bigger than this. God is specific. God knows EXACTLY what is needed. He doesn’t have to use money. What a miracle that He provided Stamps in response to a prayer for Stamps. I don’t know why that seems so foreign to me, but it is. I guess, with a business degree, I’ve always been taught that everything has to be bought with money. God is bigger than money. The stamps are HIS! He made the stamps. Of Course He Can Give Us Stamps Without Money … and He did.
I encourage you today to look for the miracles of answered prayers delivered to you. It might not come in the way that you expect but might be right there, in front of your face, between the glass and the windshield wiper. Don’t get caught up in how you want it to be answered and look past the answered prayers and blessings that are right there in front of you.
