“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us”   Ephesians 3:20

A friend of mine Wendy ordered a quarter of a cow which can be quite an investment, but the amount of meat for the cost is a wonderful deal and will feed her family for many months!

She had all but $150 of the total paid and the remaining balance would be due upon delivery of the meat.  The final payment and delivery date was quickly approaching and Wendy found herself concerned about how they would be able to come up with what they still owed.

Months before, Wendy’s husband’s ’95 Dodge Neon had completely died and because it was such an old car, the repair work needed to fix it far exceeded the car’s worth. They were able to borrow her parent’s car for a while and decided to deal with the Neon later.

There it sat, parked in their driveway unable to move, unable to drive, unable to start.

One Sunday afternoon, as Wendy and her family were relaxing watching some television, there was a knock on the door. Wendy answered the door and a complete stranger stood on her stoop.

This stranger explained that he drives past their home regularly, and had noticed the Neon sitting in the driveway for quite a while. He wondered if they were by any chance interested in selling it. He is also an owner of a ‘95 Dodge Neon that had been hit by a drunk driver, so he needed parts to fix it and offered $150 cash on the spot.

They couldn’t believe their luck. They sold him the car that day, and were able to use the money to finish paying for the beef they ordered. God easily provided their needs, and in a way that clearly got their attention.

God uses many different ways to get our attention; finances, heartache, time, people…

He wants us to recognize Him in all things and when He provides we need to give Him the credit.

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”   Ephesians 3:20-21
