‘And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.’ 2 Corinthians 9:8
For most in the world today, daily bread looks completely different. We are used to getting a check on the 1st and the 15th, we are used to going to our offices and doing what we know like the back of our hand and we are used to some sort of normal routine. Today, most of us in the world are living in our own sort of internal tornado as things are turned upside down and nothing remains on the shelf where we left it.
For my company valves, actuators, sight glasses, rupture discs and p-v-f are the norm. We know it, we know where to find it, we are price competitive and our customer service is centered there. But, just because it’s comfortable for us does not mean that’s where God’s daily bread will always come from. As He rounds us out and make us look more like Him the road may lead us to places that are uncomfortable or require a new textbook. And sometimes that provision is camouflaged. Jesus wants to see how willing we are to look for it and trust Him in the revelation of it.
Selling 500 cases of hand sanitizer has taught me there is no room for pride. There’s no room for me to demand anything from my Master. His provision is perfect and the delivery and timing are always spot on.
We have to be willing to trust Him no matter what the road looks like. Press on brothers and sisters. Because of Jesus, the race is ours to lose.
