Jehovah-Jirah: The Lord is my provider
No, this does not mean I got a car.
Rather it is my acknowledgment that in all things, He provides.
So, if I need a car, He will provide.
In my mind, I need a car. This weekend, it would be great to have
one, but that is unlikely to happen.
However, God will provide. He always does.
If you are praying for me, please join me in the prayer that God
will provide what I need, when I need it, no matter what that is.
I will strive to stay content with that, even when it is not what
I want to happen.
If you really want to join with me, start a fast today, taking
your normal meal time as a time of prayer.
Your prayer doesn’t need to be anything in particular, just that
God would sustain you, and that you would learn to trust in him
as the provider and sustainer for your life. Then, just spend
time with God however you see fit.
Just remember, a fast is about you and God, it is not about the
lack of food. If you skip a meal, do so intentionally to spend
time with God. Do NOT just work through the meal or you will
likely grow weary. I’ve learned this one the hard way. God does
not desire for us to go hungry, He desires for us to look to Him
Today I will continue to pray for God to work things out that I
can pick up Bob Wittenbach in PAP tomorrow, and return him to PAP
Monday, I will try again to renew the registration on the other
car, even though I don’t really want to. I want to leave it to be
taken care of by those who caused the paperwork mess, but this is
part of my job too, so I will try to do it.
Thursday I will be trying to work with Jeff Swope on a solar
installation north of PAP. Again, as God provides a vehicle.
For those looking for vehicles for me. I am realizing that a
diesel, while preferred, may not make the most economical sense
for a lower cost vehicle, that is in good condition, since I am
not currently a mechanic. So, I guess that is to say that gas is
also an option, and even 4×4 is not neccesary as long as there is
decent ground clearance.
