 GOD ALWAYS SURPRISES US

by Major Allan Flemming (Salvation Army)

Matthew 6: 25-34

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink? Or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.” (31,32)

Major Antonio Arguedas (Divisional Commander–Bolivia Central) writes, “I never get tired of saying with a lot of conviction, ‘GOD ALWAYS SURPRISES US’.”

He tells this story:
“Some years ago my wife and I were appointed to a Corps in Southern Chile.
  The financial condition of the poor was very bad. We were a long way from family and friends. As parents we worried about how we were going to feed our two small children. There was no money in the bank and none in the Corps safe. The pantry was bare. What were we going to do tomorrow? The problem was that we doubted that God was able to solve our problems.

“The next day I was angry and said to my wife, ‘We should not have come to this appointment! It’s not fair!’ Before I finished talking, the phone rang. A voice said, ‘Are you Mr. Arguedas?’ ‘Yes!’ I said. ‘Well, you have a large box that has just arrived and  you must come and claim it.’

“I rushed down to find such a huge box that I couldn’t even carry it. When we opened it we found a large quantity of food; milk, rice, noodles.  There was enough food for a month. We were so surprised. God sent his angels! We learned a valuable lesson. It has changed our lives.”

PONDER: Sometimes God uses difficult times to show us that we need not worry for He cares, He is with us, He will act on our behalf, He is able to do the impossible. (Read Ephesians 3:20-21)
