Sunday Scriptures — God Provides

by Sandy Kirby Quandt

Perhaps you’ve heard of dramatic stories where God provided for someone’s need when the situation seemed hopeless.  No food in the cupboard and a bag of groceries appear on the doorstep. The need for a transplant donor and one becomes available just in time. Someone knows someone who knows someone and a job is secured before the last penny from the last paycheck has been spent.

While you may not have been a participant in anything you’d call dramatic, I’m sure if you look back, you’ll see God’s hand always present, providing in ways only he can.

A time I feel for certain God provided for my parents, brother and me was when we were traveling back to the States from Panama after visiting Sissy and Chief in the Canal Zone. The Miami, Florida hotel clerk informed my dad there were no available rooms. It was late, Dad and the rest of us were tired after our flight, it wasn’t the first hotel we’d tried to find a room at, and the prospects weren’t looking too good.

As my dad turned away, the hotel clerk called him back. Seems he just so happened to have a room left after all.

Now I know, finding a hotel room does not rank up there with receiving a transplant donor, but the point I’d like to make is we need to keep our eyes open to see God’s hand at work in our lives. He doesn’t always work in dramatic ways, but he is always at work. And don’t you think he’d appreciate it if we thanked him for the things we consider small as well as the things we consider big?

What has God provided that left you saying, “Wow!”?

  1. I was one of those who received a definite gift. We had no money to pay our light bill and it was about to be shut off when someone sent us a check for the exact amount of the bill. I praise God for that. I wrote a whole story praising God for giving us that money we needed, but also a story that will be published to encourage others.


  2. Recently, I spent almost a month trying to get four tests scheduled for my son who has no insurance. I spoke to doctors, nurses, office helpers and scheduling staffs at several hospitals. My son was sure that he wouldn’t be able to have his tests. I was unsure what to do when all options seemed hopeless. But I kept confessing that I would not give up. I knew the devil was hoping I would give up. But after a month of phone calls, God came through and as always, He never ceases to amaze me. I assured my son that it was God who had made the tests available. Within a week he had the tests and praise God the results are treatable and there is nothing serious. I truly believe that “nothing is impossible with God.” I discovered that help is available to those who have no insurance. My son had to pay toward the tests but at prices substantially less than the normal price. I plan on sharing God’s goodness to encourage others not to give up on anything.


    • Oh, Fran. What a testimony to what God can and will do in our lives when we keep our eyes on him, realizing the devil wants nothing better than for us to give up and feel hopeless.
