Daily Courage - May 22

 
from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

Antonio Garrido

God shall supply every need. What a promise. And we had many needs in Cuba. For more than 30 years we had a shortage of almost everything - food, medicine, clothing, freedom.

But we also experienced the truth of God's promise. The Lord did supply, especially in moments when there was almost nothing left.

The non-Christians were deeply touched when they saw how Christians helped each other in moments of despair.

God supplied, sometimes in a miraculous way, but also often through fellow believers. That too is a miracle of grace and love.

As is written in Galatians 6:10, "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers."

God can supply - are we willing to be a channel of His grace? To believers and unbelievers?
