Loaf, Stone, Fish, Snake

Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?  If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!  (Matthew 7:9-11)

I was blessed this evening by God’s provision.  As some of you might know I am still paying tuition for my doctorate.  I will be paying until May ’09.  Main Street was blessing me and my family by paying for my tuition while on staff there.  But as of August, I will be taking that monthly installment over.  The monthly amount is not overwhelming, but will require some budgeting.

Jennifer and I have been praying that God would provide August’s tuition because it was going to be tough covering it with all the moving expenses and new house stuff.  Guess what?  God provided it tonight.

I get the honor of supply preaching/teaching at Woodlawn Bapt. Church in Lebanon, KY.  I will be there for about 3 weeks in various capacities (Sunday AM, PM, Wednesday night small groups).  The honorium will just about cover August’s tuition payment.  Instead God good to us.  He knew exactly what we needed and made sure it came at just the right time.
