God Still Provides

What did Abraham say to Isaac after their computer crashed? "God will provide the RAM."

The brief bit of levity is intended for a serious point. If Jehovah Jireh provided the lamb in the thicket to spare Isaac, and provided far more: his only begotten Son to spare us from the calamity of our sins, then what is God not willing to provide those who love him and walk in his kingdom power? What worry controls your heart this day? Are you afraid that you will run out of time before God acts on your prayer? As in the case of the original Abraham and Isaac, God always waits til the last second to intervene. He tests us that way. But he is always faithful never to test us beyond what we are able to endure (1 Cor. 10:13).

  1. This truth about God waiting until the last minute is always true with our ministry at Eagle TV. We're short funds. We have a enemy attacking us whenever she can. It just seems to never stop. But God is faithful and will provide for us when he sees fit—even if what he provides is not what we think we need.
