Praise God for Answered Prayers!

Well, here I am again, completely and totally astonished at the power of God. Once again, I devoted my Saturday morning to working with an outstanding organization, ServFood Local, with serving people within my own community, my own backyard, by packing and distributing food. And once again, my life was impacted by the families that we served.

We were able to serve one family in particular that grabbed my heart last month. This family had many pray request, last month, as family members were dealing with spiritual warfare and were in dark places in their life. We prayed over that family, leaving behind many tears and pleas of help to our Lord for intervention.

Praise God for answered prayers. Upon visiting the family, the mother only asked that we praise God this time, for all members of the family have received healing and are doing good. The family has been healed from suicidal attempts, fear for their safety, and all out spiritual warfare that has been consuming them for far too long. Yet, they remanded faithful and knew to keep their eyes on God.

Each time you leave a box of food, you are giving a family not only the physical nourishment that their bodies need, but the spiritual nourishment that comes from Jesus. Could I have spent my Saturday morning in other ways…YES? Could I just have given online to support a box for a family…. YES? But would I have been able to rest not knowing how God had worked in that family…NO! I serve so that I can be the hands and feet of Jesus, and through this I have come to love him even more. I serve because I CAN and will continue to do so.

This really is about #MoreThanFood

1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”
