A Christians we are not to announce our alms,however I am happy to share a praise report of how God can work in unexpected ways.
I was bringing water bottles to the bottle recycling place and a very poor women that I have seen with her husband before was getting a few dollars too. Her clothes were faded,her face was looking down. All of a suden that audible voice from God said,Give her your ticket. As a women of God I listen to the holy spirit and walked upto her and new she didn’t speak english so I said, this is for you pointing at the ticket. Her face glowed with happiness and she looked at me and smiled. Bringing joy to others who are less fortunate is to bring us Joy as God loves a cheerfull giver.
Bring Joy to others in unexpected ways.
2 Corinthians 9:7 KJV Every man according as he purposeth in his heart,so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
In this world we must be focused and remember that our help is from God who made heaven and Earth.
“Keep focused on the strength God is giving you to press on.”
Psalm121:1+2KJV I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills,from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
When we call upon the Lord in truth he draws near to us.
Draw near to God in truth.
Truth, that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality.
“Psalm145:18KJV The LORD [is] nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.“
Some people have said, how have you experienced all you have in 40 years and still have faith? I can say, that it’s only because of my faith in God from when I became saved knowing what Jesus Christ did on that cross that has changed me and alowed me to have the faith the I have.
“Hebrews 11:1 KJV Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.“
“Praise the Lord make a joyful noise.”Psalm119:105KJV Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path
Have you ever noticed that people don’t recognize the insignificant things in society like the poor,the disabled or disadvantaged?
Some of the most beautiful people are the poor,disabled and disavantaged because they have kind,loving,humble souls that know how to Love.
I was at work the other day cleaning offices and a women walked past me as I was getting garbage bins from desks as I am the cleaning lady. She dropped a banana peal in my recycling box and looked at me like oops and didn’t have a care. I chose to forgive and continued on gathering garbage. This made me realize she might have a good job yet does she know Jesus Christ and the way I act is a reflection of our Lord Jesus.I chose to show God’s beauty in my actions.
My point is that God loves rich and poor and we are all equal in his eyes. We have a beauty from within that has great value to God.
God’s people are beautiful.
Psalm90:17KJV And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.”
