Give and It Will Be Given

Gideon Smith - 03/08/2012

My wife and I had a medical bill we couldn't afford to pay, so we told them we couldn't afford it. We then gave some money to a ministry that helps our brothers and sisters who are persecuted.

The next day, my wife was contacted by the medical people and told that the bill was cleared and we owed them nothing. God blessed us five times the amount that we gave by taking care of that debt. When my wife told me this, I was amazed and said, "Wow! Since we had some of that money set aside to pay the bill from our income tax, we should give again."

So right at the table tonight, l prayed, "Lord, if You want us to give again, You will send someone to us in need. Well, I went to the grocery store and had to get some stuff but I forgot to get everything, so I had to go back. When I went back, I began to murmur but instead I praised God. When I left the store, a man approached me with an empty gas container, asking if I could help him. I said, "Sorry, I don't have any cash." But then remembered the prayer I prayed. At this point, I said, "Give me the tank. I will fill it up for you. I filled the container up and went to the ATM to get him some cash. When I got back to him, I told him about my prayer and let him know that it was Christ Who just showed him and me this miracle.

I am so in awe of God's direction and all His works. Praise the Lord, in Jesus name! You want proof of Christ, there you go. Halleluyah!
