Sunday evening we again realized the amazing work Jesus has done for us! The fact that He gave His life so that we can stand in relationship with our Father!
I love my Father with my whole heart and I take this relationship very literally. Sunday I shared how I sometimes take God for coffee…
Last week God did a miracle for us by providing in a big way for a big problem we had. I went to a coffee shop, ordered 2 cups of coffee and thanked Him for providing for us in such a big way. I also opened my Bible and read the portions of my daily reading plan. It started with 1 Chronicles 1. Now if you know the Bible, you would know that it is all about genealogies.
At one stage I said to God that the conversation was not very interesting. It was as if He just smiled and He asked me what one of my greatest heart desires was. I told Him about my desire to have a piece of land or bigger church in Danville. There was no response, so I just went back to the genealogies in Chronicles. My eyes scanned through the chapters, until I got to this verse:
1 Chronicles 4:10(MSG):
10…Jabez prayed to the God of Israel: "Bless me, O bless me! Give me land, large tracts of land. And provide your personal protection—don't let evil hurt me." God gave him what he asked.
I knew this verse, but forgot that it was hidden between all the genealogies. What an amazing God! What an amazing answer and promise!
Take God for coffee! He will speak to you and He will even give His cup of coffee to you!
