I’ve seen many miracles in my time on this earth. Lives saved. Bodies healed. Disasters averted. We know God cares about the “big issues,” but what blesses me is knowing He cares just as much about the small ones.For instance, I recently needed a couple of small chairs to go with a table that would serve as a temporary dining table. Chairs are typically expensive, so I hesitated.
One day I loaded my car with items to donate to Miracle Hill, a local ministry and thrift store. The thought crossed my mind to go inside and look for chairs. But I quickly dismissed it. Too many other things to do. As I prepared to leave the house, my husband said, “why don’t you go inside and look for chairs?”
Confirmation? Okay, Lord, is that you? I wondered.
After I dropped off the items and entered the store, I was greeted with, “Welcome. Our furniture is 35 percent off today. I smiled and headed to the back of the store.
There sat two chairs—my chairs. The right size, perfect color, and an amazing price. When the clerk rang them up, I paid a whopping total of $11.00 for them. That’s what I call a God-thing or a UB (unexpected blessing).
The Bible says God cares about everything that concerns us—big and small. He knows what we need, when we need it, and the desires of our heart. Most of all, He delights in blessing His kids.
Tell the Lord what you need today, then be on the lookout for those unexpected blessings.
