That evening I went to my cousin’s house and we started talking about income. She started talking about high paying jobs and what she would do with the money. After she finished I started to make a case that you don’t need that much money and that I trust God- He will provide for me. So she stated making up scenario after scenario, trying to pressure me into saying that I would like a ridiculously high income. My answer every time was “No, God will provide”.
God set me up for that conversation I was going to have with my cousin. If I did get a fresh revelation of God as my provider and have that battle with my fleshly desire, I wouldn’t have been able to adequately argue my case. He prepared me for that moment.
He knows what is going to happen next. He knows what you are going to do after you read this! Our lives are not made up of coincidences. If you find that God is challenging you, don’t dismiss it. You may need to understand the lesson behind it sooner rather than later.
Now then, my sons, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it.
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
