Grace at Work

Wednesday, March 11th – Proverbs 11:24-25 (NLT)

“One person gives freely, yet gains even more;

    another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
A generous person will prosper;

    whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”

Years ago, my roommate went on something like YWAM’s DTS.  She was gone for 6 weeks, which meant she wasn’t there to contribute her share of rent & utilities.  There was a small family (Dad, Mom & baby) at church who needed a place to live for about a month. I invited them to live in my roommate’s room as she was gone.  They were unable to pay anything toward the rent, in fact, they barely had enough to buy food for themselves. There was a week between when I paid the last of what I had for rent and when I was to be paid where I had no food left and nothing to buy food with. Every day that week a good lunch was provided for me. One day the Boss bought everyone lunch.  Another day a co-worker said she owed me lunch… I didn’t go hungry and I didn’t fast. God took care of me. I was one who refreshed others and I was refreshed.

Jehovah Jireh – my Provider.  Help me to recognize Your provision.  Help me to freely give what You have given to me so You can give me more.  Help me to refresh others so that I may be refreshed by You. Amen and amen
