Testimony: God Provides

crazy bread

Every Friday is an exciting one because it is pizza night. Friday after work I take a drive to Little Caesars and order two, 5 meat feast, take it home and as a family devour it…lol 

Today, when I went to get the pizza, God revealed Himself to me in such a way that it was undeniable. You see, I never order crazy bread but today, after ordering the two pizzas I sat down which the wait was to be 12 minutes or so. While I was waiting, in my mind I was contemplating if I should order the crazy bread. For whatever reason, I had a desire for the bread so for about 2 minutes I was debating if I should ask the guy to toss in a bag of that yummy crazy bread and pay an extra $3.50. Back and forth I went, talking to myself until I just gave up and forgot about it.

Meanwhile, a guy comes in to buy a pizza but the little caesars credit card machine freezes up on him after he inserted his card and doesn’t allow him to purchase one. The customer started to stare at the person behind the counter as if seeking for a solution but the Caesars’ employee said, “there’s nothing I can do to help you, do you have another means of purchasing it? The customer replied, “no” the little caesars’ employee replied, “is not like I can give you free food, I need money, sorry man, can’t help you” 

Finally, my pizza was ready but the guy behind the counter after he grabs my two pizzas, he goes and gets a bag of crazy bread and puts it on the top of the two pizza boxes. I said to myself, this guy just made a mistake because I did not order any crazy bread, even though I wanted it, I was tempted to say nothing and get something for free but I knew that it was a sin so, that was a no-brainer decision. Of course, I wasn’t going to take it, when he called me I immediately said, “I didn’t order that, while I was still talking he interrupted me and said, “I know you didn’t order it, I just wanted to give it to you.” 

He just finished telling a customer that he cannot give free food and here he is giving me free food.

That was AMAZING, I desired it in my heart and was debating if I should get it. The Lord knows that I really wanted it and through that man, the Lord not only gave it to me but said, “I wanted to give it to you”  How awesome is that. I have never experienced something like this before where I wanted something and a person almost right away gives it to me for no apparent reason, almost like if he heard my mind but I know that God heard my mind and gave it to me because He is good. 

I know this testimony is not grand but God cares even in the smallest parts of our lives. To me, this was BIG because God showed up and that’s what matters to me.

The Love Of Christ For All

loveofjesus

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

4 Love is patient, love is kind.
Love does not envy,
is not boastful, is not conceited,
5 does not act improperly,
is not selfish, is not provoked,
and does not keep a record of wrongs.
6 Love finds no joy in unrighteousness
but rejoices in the truth.
7 It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
13 Now these three remain:
faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.


Love is the quality and character of Jesus Christ. In verse 13, it shows love as the greatest quality because it comprises of the other two. A person who truly loves Jesus has placed their faith in Him and are waiting for the hope (expectation) of His return. 

  • Faith means to trust in Jesus with your whole life

  • Hope is very powerful because it encourages you to continue your walk with the Lord regardless of ANY tribulation one goes through. Knowing that our tribulation is only for a short time because all things will be made new.

    Romans 8:20-21: 20 For the creation was subjected to futility—not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it—in the hope 21 that the creation itself will also be set free from the bondage of corruption into the glorious freedom of God’s children.

    The creation itself as hope in the sense that it will be remade in perfection (Revelation 21:1) because when Adam sinned, creation was cursed. Just as the creation will be remade so we who are in Christ will receive a new body that will never die so that we may be with Jesus for all eternity. This is our hope.


  • Love means that you are willing to sacrifice your life for the Gospel and Jesus Christ. Love also means that Jesus is always in your mind, thinking what you can do to make Him happy and rejoice. Love is so powerful because it gives you faith to believe in God’s Word and to hope (trust) in His promises. 

 


This is how much Jesus, loves you 

John 3:16 (Emphasis added by SpaniardVIII)

16 “For God loved the world in this way: God is about to disclose His plan that He had before the foundation of the world to show how much He really loves us. He gave His One and Only Son, The Father sends His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ whom He loves very much to punish Him for what we did so that everyone who believes in Him Once God has dealt with our sins than can the doors of heaven be open unto us with the keys, that is, faith in Jesus will not perish but have eternal life. Faith in Jesus will rescue us from eternal torment. Faith in Jesus will wash away all of our sins and make us new so that we can live in heaven with a righteous and Holy God.  As a righteous Judge, He has to punish those who are evil but at the same time, He wants them to come to repentance so they can live with Him in paradise.
