We are a part of a wonderful ministry that works in the Middle East. Recently, though, both Roland and I were involved in car accidents within the span of a week. Neither of the accidents were our fault, so our insurance company was taking care of everything. We were both given rental cars to drive and even my chiropractic care was paid for. I’d just been laid off of from my government job because of the coronavirus, so we were so grateful that these accidents were going to be covered.
One day, out of the blue, the insurance company called me and said, “We’d love to give you some money for your inconvenience.” I didn’t understand what she was talking about, but she quoted me a figure of $800, asking, “Do you think that’s enough?” Everything from the accident had already been paid for, so I hadn’t been expecting extra money at all. It was such a sweet gift from the Lord.
Roland had been hit so hard that it totaled his car. The insurance company came out to the site of the accident and told him that, not only would they give him a rental car, they were also going to give him an extra $3,000. A few weeks before the accident had happened, we’d received a prophetic word about upgrades and vehicles. Roland’s car was not only replaced, but upgraded. When both of these accidents happened, I heard the Lord say, “You will not be in any debt.” But, I had no idea there would be an increase! On top of that, the woman who hit him was from the Middle East. We got a chance to minister to her and share about Jesus.
This year, we’ve seen the abundant provision of the Lord over our family. God had spoken to us 10-12 different times about the college one of our sons was supposed to attend. As his parents, we wanted to help pay for his education. He received some grants and took out some minimal loans, but our portion for the year was still $20,000. But, we faced that debt with God’s word and promise. We knew wanting to provide for our son came from the Father’s heart. And, through gifts and job opportunities, God cleared that entire debt this year. We get to surrender our burdens, resting in the knowledge that God takes care of us.
