As a young Christian with a wife and 4 young children, I was asked to "leave" my employment as a supervisor for my "witnessing".
With only 100 dollars to our entire wealth and all the "needs" such as rent, food , car payment , etc. , the Lord "impressed" upon me not to look for work -- but to "trust" HIM --
I thought, how can this be -- I had read of George Mueller's life of faith --- but how did I know for sure that HE wanted me to "risk" the wellbeing of my family .
I told my wife this was how I felt the Lord was leading -- she agreed to pray and trust with me. The next morning I fasted, prayed and then set out to visit nursing homes and hold bible studies in homes of Christians --- I didn't tell anyone I was out of work --
That next sunday , I was teaching an adult sunday school class and on the podium was an envelope with money with a note saying -- for your needs ------- this continued week after week, one blessing upon another -- from various sources , from people who years ago we helped out and they "out of the blue" felt compelled to send us money --
This continued for about 2 months when I wanted to be "certain" the Lord was still leading me on this faith walk -- I prayed that morning this prayer --
"Lord if U want me to continue this way, would U bring me 50 dollars from the last person on earth I would ever imagine giving me money - Now that 50 dollars was needed that very day for a bill I owed. 30 Seconds after that prayer , the front doorbell rang -- I went down the stairs and my sister was standing there -- this is 8:30 in the morning -- she had a puzzled look on her face and she said this -- " My husband last nite said , I want U to bring Bob this 50 dollars for his needs. " -- now my sister was not a church goer and her husband loved money - was not the type to give money away to anyone ever --my sister was in "shock" for her husband NEVER would do anything like this.
SO I GOT MY FLEECE answered and this "faith" walk continued for another month and the Lord then impressed upon me to look for work and that very day HE gave me a wonderful job. So for 3 months, HE supplied every bill and need without once asking anyone for anything -- we had our needs supplied in the most amazing ways ---
WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO TRUST IN HIM
