Yahweh Will Provide
Will You Trust Him to Do So?
Henry G. Bosch relates the story of a needy widow in Chicago who lived by the motto: "The Lord (Yahweh) will provide". Even when severely tested, Mrs.Hokanson never lost her ready smile and triumphant face. Casting her care on Yahweh (1 Pet.5:7), she found that He always took the burden and supplied the needed blessing.
"My Elohim (God) shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Messiah Yah'shua (Christ Jesus)" (Phil.4:19, NKJV).
Mrs.Hokanson was the sole support for mer mentally retarded son. Eventually, chronic artritis confined her to bed. When a church youth group went over to her house to cheer her up, they were amazed to discover that she was not depressed. They inquired: 'Now what will you and Arthur do?' She gave her usual quiet, confident response: "The Lord (Yahweh) will provide".
When Mrs.Hokanson died, many people wondered what would happen to her son who was incapable to providing for himself. But when friends and neighbours went home with Arthur after the funeral, he proudly showed them his collection of stamps. Instead of tearing the stamps off the envelopes, he had intercepted and kept scores of letters intended for his monther and left them unopened. Many contained substantial gifts - enough to care for the boy for the rest of his life.
Yahweh provides in all kinds of mysterious and unexpected ways, does He not? He promises to supply all the needs of those who trust in Him through Yah'shua (Jesus) His Son. Will you trust Him? If you will, you will be fully taken care of!
