A Good Retirement!
How many of us have saved every penny to put money aside only to have the bottom fall out of the economy and much of what we had accumulated cast to the wind? A man I know lost nearly half of his retirement account a few years ago. He declared with despair that he did not know what he was going to do in his old age. My friend looked at his loss and concluded that there was no hope. Life had dealt him a cruel blow from which he could not recover. He saw only a dead-end.
He (like many others) does not know our "Jehovah-Jireh," our "Lord Who Provides" so often spoken of in the scriptures. God revealed Himself to Abraham in the book of Genesis as the One who would provide all things. (Gen. 22:1-14) God sees in advance what we will need and provides a way beforehand for our needs to be met. What He did in times past, He can do for us today. The scriptures contain stories of His provision to encourage us when life looks grim and we need an extra boost of faith in Him. We need only to let go of our own striving and trust God who loves us dearly.
As we go through the verses in this short month, we see His desire to be our provider, our "Jehovah-Jireh" even when we have little hope of a solution to our predicaments.
