Our car doesn’t start.
The electricity goes out.
Our debit card suddenly doesn’t work at the grocery store.
The majority of the things we really count on in our lives will let us down at one time or another.
A job we thought we would have for a long time ends.
People who we trusted disappoint us.
There is only one thing that we can always count on – our Father God will never let us down.
He is trustworthy, faithful and perfect.
He can’t mess up.
We might think he made a mistake when he does something we don’t understand.
But it’s impossible for him to do anything wrong.
We can always count on him.
We read in 1 Kings the account of the widow who made a loaf of bread with her last handful of flour and gave that bread to Elijah.
Then she discovered that she had enough flour and oil to make another loaf for herself and her son.
And she continued to have enough to make bread through the long drought that was going on where she lived.
God provided for her and he will provide for us.
It may seem like there is not going to be enough but God’s supplies never run dry.
His love and grace and provision for us never run out.
He is watching over us today…right now.
We can count on it.
Thank you, Abba Father.
