Liz became a believer when she was living in the park. Tammy and her church approached her and told her about God. They prophetically asked Liz if she knew someone name James, she denied it to these crazy Christians several times. Everyone continued on their merry way until someone from her church crosses by her near the public bathroom and hears her call her Husband’s name, “James!”. They talk to her again and convince her God had told them to find her. She has been going to church since. God takes care of His children.
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” – Jesus
But that’s not the lesson. The lesson is about who and how.
Tammy and Aimee and her church. Who helped introduce her to the family of Christ. Who bought her the Greyhound tickets. Who got her connected to Kim & Ruth and The Le’s. Then handed off the responsibility to Kim & Ruth.
Kim & Ruth. Who never wakes up before noon on a Saturday to drive her from downtown to El Cajon at 9am. Only to find out it was only three blocks from the Skyline church, where they had planned to go to anyway for a conference. Who handed off the responsibility to The Le’s.
The Le’s. Who are relatively filthy rich. Who drove her around and housed and fed her for the weekend. Who will now hand off the responsibility back to the church.
How God never required anyone to do more than they were capable. How He found the perfect people in the right situation to take over when the last was done. How He orchestrated the events. How he provided. How he blesses everyone in the path. How he loved.
So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Ep 4:11-13
