Has God ever bailed you out of a sticky situation at work?
Sometimes we find ourselves in situations that we did not create – or at least not intentionally, but we have to deal with them any way! I don’t know about you, but I seem to have a real knack of landing in situations that I never saw coming.
Years ago I found myself needing to convey information about the cost of a service to a group of people. Since I had not been the person who first started working with the group, I was not sure what they had been told or if the people starting the project had shared the information.
Now, months down the road, I realized I might have goofed because I never thought to bring it up, and the question had not ever been asked. I was not sure how I would approach the topic with them, or what their response would be. If the other person had adequately discussed it with them, all would go well. If not, there could be a small snag, and I would have to deal with the consequences.
I decided the best way to handle it would be if they brought it up with an expectation that there was an additional charge for this service. There was only one way that was going to happen. God would have to step in.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
I prayed all the way to the meeting.
You might be wondering if I really expected God would get involved. Yes, I did have the expectation that God cared, and He would quite possibly get involved.
But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Going back to my story, guess what? God bailed me out! He sent the miracle I needed! Someone asked the exact question I needed them to ask. All was well.
Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
Sometimes we don’t have because we do not ask. Instead, we often seek the answers apart from God. I have lost count of all the times I have asked and my wonderful Father in Heaven has bailed me out when I some how landed in a situation I never saw coming.
Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
The next time you need something, I encourage you to remember to ask. Your needs are not news to God.
Key Focal Verse:
And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
Today’s challenge is to take note of the small things that work out for you. When you ask for His help, know He is able. Remember to thank God for His intervention.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Have confidence that if you really need it, God will supply it.
