Last week God graciously answered a couple of my prayer requests. God is so good! I’m going to share one of those answered prayers with you today.
What’s so great is that God answered a desire of mine with a specific fulfillment on His part. God cares about the little things…and is able to take care of ALL our needs… even if those needs aren’t always what we label as a “live or die” type situation. And, He can answer SPECIFIC needs and requests.
In the back of my prayer journal last Tuesday, I wrote down a couple of things that I would really like to have for some gardening work. One was a compost bin. I’ve been using a big plastic storage container for the last year and just stirring it with my little hand shovel.
I priced the compost bin I wanted, and let’s just say it was NOT cheap. But… I jotted this down in the back of my prayer journal anyway. When I wrote it down, I pictured the exact kind of compost bin I wanted. It would certainly make it easier to store my compost and turn the barrel over several times to stir all the dirt and grub around inside.
The next day, on our way to Wednesday evening church service, my hubby spotted a compost bin for sale on the side of the road. I was amazed…I couldn’t believe it! I couldn’t believe he even saw it because it was up on a little hill. We stopped by on our way home after church and grabbed this treasure for a very tiny fraction of the new price value. It was even delivered for us!
I’m sharing this because I want you to remember God still answers prayer…even the little desires of your heart. I know it’s not always a “yes” and sometimes we have to wait a long while. And then there are times that God decides to throw us a big surprise and answer immediately.
God cares about your problems — big or small. He is able to meet any needs that you have. Pray specifically.
We need to keep FAITHFUL serving Him. We need to totally trust Him to CARE for us. Let’s get busy PRAYING this week…and all the days to come.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6
Below is a picture of my new treasure (I just washed it off, so it has some wet streaks.). God cares about YOUR little (or big) things, too… Do SHARE with me how God has given you a desire of your heart by answering a prayer.
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. I Peter 5:7
God bless your day ahead,
