“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
As Walt and I sat discussing what we wanted in a house, my top wishes was that the lower cabinets in the kitchen would have drawers. I’ve always felt that it’s such a waste of space! Who likes to get down on the floor each time you need something way back in the back? Not me!
Then as we were driving to a friends home, I saw one of those little advertisement signs they stick by the side of the road that said, SOLAR PANELS and I told Walt, that too! I want solar panels to help with the cost of electricity. I mean it makes sense in Florida, right?
Guess what the house we bought has? Solar panels and drawers in the kitchen! It reminded me of this verse found in Isaiah, that God anticipates our needs and longs to bless us so much that before we even put them into words, He hears and answers.
There have been seasons where I felt that the distance between God and I was a chasm and had to remind myself that He’s always with me. But recently I’ve experienced things like this, where I no sooner say it and it’s there. The blessings of the Lord on steroids!
I’ve said it for years, Gods desire is to bless His children. Just like any parent on the face of the earth wants good things for theirs, so is it with God. Just as Jesus tried to tell us in Matthew 7:11, “If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!”
Thank You Father for the gifts You’ve given me. I’m so grateful. I know You were watching me as I put my pots and pans away in those big, beautiful drawers you provided. Every time I open the doors and pull it out to grab a skillet, I’m thankful You heard and answered. I’m sure I’ll be excited when my first electric bill arrives as well. You’re such a good Father! You’re such a giver! When I grow up, I want to be just like You. Amen
