God’s Provision

Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Psalm 29:2

Today I found God when the sky opened up and poured down beautiful, beautiful rain.  My gardens have been begging for it.  The sky darkens and lightens and darkens again as the storms roll through.  It brought me memories of what my Granddaddy used to say. No matter how much you water with the garden hose, there is just no substitution for one of the good Lord’s rain showers.  And he was right every time he said it.  When I am prone to wonder about what may be a necessity in my life, I find there is never any substitution for the provisions of God.  This morning, I realized that last night I forgot to change my daily scripture here on the website.  I usually do this just prior to bed so all of you early risers can see it at the crack of dawn which is way before I crawl out of bed.  This morning during my quiet time I found these verses in The Message:


Jesus is ‘the stone you masons threw out, which is now the cornerstone.’ Salvation comes no other way; no other name has been or will be given to us by which we can be saved, only this one. Acts 4:11 &12


When we were in Hawaii we saw the neatest thing.  One side of Hawaii is all lava rock with little vegetation.  The other side has all the lushness because of the tropical rain showers every day. We stayed on the lava side.  It looked like the moon.  All along the roads in the crumbled up lava were words written with coral.  Some big, some small, some just names to let someone else know they had been there.  One day we took a ride up the coast for a short sightseeing trip and this is what we saw on a foothill of a volcano:Hawaii Jesus loves, lava and coral


So I find a provision amidst the desolation of lava rock. There is just no substitution for Jesus.  He is God’s ultimate provision. There will never be another name we can call on for salvation of our souls.  There will never be another we can call on for healing and peace and miracles.  The world can offer nothing greater as a replacement because Jesus is a Holy gift.  Even thousands of miles from home, as I look out a car window for a glimpse of scenery, a little beauty, I see the reminder that my little evangelical heart needed – JESUS LOVES.  With that love, He saves and I know this: It is the only truth worth holding on to, it is the only thing worth giving up everything else to follow wherever He may lead me.
