Are You Blessed?
When World War ll was getting under way, Corrie Ten Boom lived in Amsterdam, where her family were watchmakers. They were Christians. As the Third Reich began to round up Jewish people to send to concentration camps, Ten Boom's family made a secret room in their house to harbor and hide Jews from the Germans. Eventually, the hiding place was discovered and the Ten Boom family was sent to the Ravensbruck concentration camp where all but Corrie died before she was set free through a "clerical error" just before the war in Europe ended.
Many would say that the error was just that, but others of the faith know there are no coincidences in God's world. After she was set free, Corrie's story was told around the world and she travel to 60 countries telling people of the blessings of Jesus, her Savior!
How convinced are you that the clothes you wear and the food you eat are really something you did on your own? Is not the Lord of our souls also the provider for our bodies? These "things" we so much enjoy are actually blessings from our God who continues to care for us until time to bring us home to Jesus in heaven! We are so blessed!
28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own," (Matt 6:28-34).
