God Takes Care of His Own!

God takes care of His children!  Never never never think He won't take care of your needs.  

This past week, a dear friend from church heeded the nudge from the Lord and came by with things only the Lord knew I had been thinking about purchasing as funds allowed.  She brought not only bags of tops and jeans/sweats, but also shoes and even various skin creams that are awesome for moisturizing in the midst of drying winter winds.  Many items were new, some still with tags and/or in package.  And most fit already, some are large but perfect for layering (a must in winter), and some are goals to work on that will happen in the coming weeks.  

Again, it was a tear filled moment when the busy day was done and I had time to think.  Earlier, back in November, just before Thanksgiving, the Lord provided by another dear friend from church who delivered tons of nice clothing in just the size I'd gotten into.  Now, He provided more 2 months later.  
My cup and closet overflows!  

I am in awe, tears, and am so grateful.  There's no way I could ever afford to purchase much as I drop off weight and size.  God knew this.  He knew our budget is rather tight, and most of my "extra" purchases are toward the kids and hubby and not myself.  It is through Him working through these ladies that I am sufficiently warm this winter, with plenty of layers top and bottom, with sweaters that hold out the cold I can wear around the house and out and about, with pants that I can wear and capris I can put under long skirts to add additional warmth.  

He has also provided more food than we dreamed of having, funds that were completely unexpected but much needed, and most of all, peace beyond all measure.

He has taken care of me and my family.  

He will take care of you too.  If you know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, He will take care of your needs,  Notice I didn't say He'd supply you with mansions and fat bank accounts and a garage full of BMW's.  He takes care of our needs, He makes himself known in providing just as things are needed, when you don't know where the funds will come from, where you'll find the money for the week's groceries, or how you'll get to work...I think you get the picture.  If a parent wants to give the best to his/her children, wouldn't God do even better for His own?  He does!  He goes above and beyond, and makes sure we know it is by Him that our needs are taken care of.

God created us all, but we have sin on us by way of Adam.  We can't be in the presence of a perfect God, but Jesus can.  Jesus came down and lived a sinless, perfect life, and offered Himself as the sacrifice for your sins and for mine.  I couldn't pay the price, nor can you.  He did it for us.  Jesus went to the cross, was crucified, died, laid in the tomb, and rose again on the third day and defeated death and hell, and sits at the right hand of God.  He made it possible for us to become part of God's family, to be adopted into the family, to be a brother or sister to Jesus, joint heir with the Son.  

How do you get to know Jesus as personal Lord and Savior?

Who is Good?
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.  There is none, that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no not one."  (Romans 3:10-12)

Who Has Sinned?
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"  (Romans 5:12)

What Is The Eternal Cost of Your Sin?
"For the wages of sin is death..."  (Romans 6:23)
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men..." (Romans 1:18)

You Cannot Save Yourself
"Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight..." (Romans 3:20)
"Where is boasting then?  It is excluded.  By what law?  of works?   Nay: but by the law of faith."  (Romans 3:27)

God's Love Has Provided The Way!
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him."  (Romans 5:8-9)

You Must Place Your Complete Faith in Jesus Christ
"Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering:  not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?"  (Romans 2:4)
"Even the righteousness of god which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe."  (Romans 3:22)
"Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law."  (Romans 3:28)
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (Romans 10:9)

Do You Believe That Jesus Christ Alone Can Save You?
The Bible states, "And being fully persuaded that, what he (God) had promised, he was able also to perform."  (Romans 4:21)

Here is God's Promise to You:
"...if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.  Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:"  (Romans 4:24-5:1)

Pray Now And Ask Him To Save You!
"For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."  (Romans 10:10)

If you will accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, please pray this prayer or one similar to it with all of you heart:  "Dear God, I admit I am a sinner, going to hell.  I know that I cannot save myself.  I turn from my sins and put my faith in the blood that you shed for me on the cross to pay for all my sins.  I now accept you as my Saviour and trust you to take me to heaven.  Thank you for saving me.  Amen."

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  (Romans 10:13)


Don't call out to the Lord for what He can do, but for what He did.  He took your sins, He is offering the gift of Salvation.  It is up to you to accept it.  That's the best thing He can give you.  The rest is all gravy.
