Lessons Learned from My Sickness Part 7: God’s Wallet – The Sufficiency of God’s Provision
Honestly, a few questions kept bouncing in my mind during my long days of hospital confinement.
- How long will I be made to stay here?
- What additional procedures, laboratory tests, medications will be presribed for me?
- What will they cost?
- Do we have the means and resources to pay the accumulating bills?
- What about the next stage of procuring my targeted therapy?
I have asked these questions because one of life’s realities confronting people now is the high cost of health and medical services. To get sick is very very expensive.
In presenting these concerns with Mam Martha, she confidently declared that it’s not something for us to worry about.
She’s holding on to God’s promise and powerful declaration, “My grace is sufficient for you.”
To put our mind at ease, and our faith in action, we earnestly prayed about it and designate an empty wallet as “God’s Wallet”.
There, the Lord showed us his amazing acts and miraculous power.
It was there that love gifts, contributions, envelopes, cheques, remittances from individuals, families, couples, groups, churches, organizations, institutions, alumni batches, friends and acquaintances which keep on coming were put into by Mam Martha.
These resources, which keep on pouring with words of encouragement, prayers of intercessions, and generous acts of mercy were so overwhelming!
Our “God’s wallet” has never been empty ever since. Indeed, God’s grace is sufficient for our needs!
