I Didn’t See That Coming

quail

2 Corinthians 9:8 (NIV)

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 

When the Israelites were in the desert, God fed them with manna from heaven.  This source of food sustained them since they would not have enough food in the desert if it was not for this manna.  It was a miraculous provision; yet, they got tired of eating the same thing every day.  They said, “Moses, we want some meat to eat out here.”

On one hand you could say that they were being a little greedy since God was going out of His way to give them the food, which they so desperately needed with such a large group of people and so little resources available in the desert.  On the other hand, everyone wants a steak every now and then.

Moses thought, “That’s impossible.  Meat out here in the desert?”  We are not talking about one dinner for four here, we are talking about meat for two million people.  There were no grocery stores or any place to buy food.

But God has always had ways to give His children increase that they have never even thought of.  God simply shifted the direction of the wind and caused a huge flock of quail to come into the Israelite camp.  The people didn’t even have to go after it.  The meat came to them.  What’s very interesting is that quail don’t normally travel that far away from the water.  If there had not been a strong wind, the quail would have never made it way out to their camp in the middle of the desert.

The main point is that God knows how to get your provision to you, where you are right now.

What do you need in your life today?  What are the desires of your heart?  God is able to make things align so that you have everything you need and even some things that you don’t need, but want.  God’s grace is sufficient.  Trust Him to bring increase to your life in unexpected ways!

If you wish for ice cream and the wind picks up suddenly, I would be sure you have an ice cream-proof jacket on.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
