Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

What is a good retirement?

  

He had saved every penny to put money aside only to have the bottom fall out of the economy

and much of what he had accumulated was cast to the wind.  He had lost nearly half of his

retirement account.  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 did 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.
