ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,  Beloved of GOD,   John 3:16-18

Provision In The Wilderness

There’s a lady in our church who is a single mom. Her family has gone through a lot of struggles. For years she was barely making it, but every Sunday she and her two sons would be at Lakewood. She stayed faithful during her “wilderness” season because she knew she was headed to her Promised Land.

This lady’s son, from the time he was a little boy, always said that he was going to get a scholarship to go to college. He could have thought, “We’re poor. I’m at a disadvantage.” But this single mother taught her sons that God is a God of abundance, that He can make a way when we don’t see a way. Her son graduated number two in his high school. He received not one scholarship, but nine scholarships totaling over 1.3 million dollars. His undergraduate, his master’s and his doctorate degrees are all paid for at Georgetown University.

Friend, remember, God is no respecter of persons. Whatever you are believing for, whatever provision you need in the wilderness, know that He is faithful. He will provide streams in the desert and provision for you in every area of your life!

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for providing streams in the desert. Thank You for refreshing me in the wilderness. Thank You for providing all my needs according to Your riches in glory as I stand in faith and stay faithful to You in Jesus’ name. Amen”

My Thoughts:
What a great story,  I am sure there are many more just like that one.  In fact the Holy Bible is full of great stories just like that one in Hebrews 11.   The writer (Paul, I think) did a masterful job of giving us that witness of faith as to what can be done when we Trust the LORD and give the Holy Spirit room to do what HE was sent to do.  I have seen it happen at least 6 times already in my life time when the impossible became a fact of history.   And a lot of times things came to pass in spite of my dumb decisions.   God has allowed me to plant HIS seed of faith many times now and others came along with weed pulling watering and fertilizing and it grew to be a fruitful trees in the Kingdom of God.   Now at near 87 working on a 7th planting..  A very small fragile house church in Kealia, (So. Capt. Cook,  Hawaii.)   But over the years I have been learning a lot of what not to do.  Our little 1/2 acre spot is right under the west slope of Mauna Loa is at about a 1,000′ elevation.  An area that is a strong with touch of Old Hawaii.  Out our back door there is only jungle forest to the top of Mauna Loa.  Did you know that there is even an Observatory up there as an atmospheric baseline station?   Friday evening gatherings are starting to happen now and the joy of the LORD is beginning to happen with our little gathering.  Looking forward to seeing what the Holy Spirit is going to do here each week now.   “Little is much, when GOD is in it”  I have been told and I tend to believe it. 

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with himPsalm 126:5-6

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><
