Lunch Money

A friend of mine shared the following story several years ago.  God provided in Old Testament times and He still does today:

I was meeting with one of my staff today. She has faced a great deal of adversity this year in life and yet still hung on to the vision that God had birthed in her heart - one that we are really beginning to see the great fruit of.

After our meeting and time of encouragement, she went about her work - needing to connect with one of the mothers of some of the kids involved in her program. While on the phone she said “why don’t we go out for lunch to talk more about this . . .” After she got off the phone she muttered (in a ‘frustrated with herself tone’), “Why did I offer to take her for lunch, I don’t have the money for that!”

I happened to over hear her comment and spoke up. “It was a faith decision, God will provide.” She said “well maybe, but it felt like a stupid decision”.

About 10 minutes one of our supporters walked in the door. She was coming in to make a donation and just before she left she said, “I have one more gift to leave, while I was walking in here I felt the Lord telling me that YFC needed another $20 for something and that I was to give it. So, I don’t know what the need is, but here you go.”

Hearing this, I immediately went and got the staff member and connected the two women and watched God show himself through his voice heard by one and his answer given to another.
