God Still Provides for His People

We were touring Israel together. One man used a cane to steady himself. After 2 days of walking on uneven and rocky terrain, his cane’s rubber bottom wore thin. Our guide suggested we look in tourist shops for something that might work until we got to Jerusalem, where we could get a new cane.

Our next stop was the ancient city of Bet She-An. As walked through the ruins, we came to what once had been stores.

It lasted until we arrived in Jerusalem.

God still provides for his people. That is why we pray.

Long Expected Jesus

Christmas is a celebration of Jesus’ birth. For to you is born this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord (from Luke 2:11).

Christmas is also a reminder that Jesus will be back. The Lord himself will descend from heaven (1 Thessalonians 4:16).

Waiting, we pray, “Come, Lord Jesus” (Revelation 22:20).
