But God

Life can be frustrating at times for everyone. We have all faced times where nothing we were doing was working and failure seemed inevitable. Recently a young couple I know was trying to get the wife into a good hospital that would give her physical rehab as well as psychiatric help.

There was just one little problem: they had NO insurance. The first hospital that they were going to have to consider was one that had a terrible reputation for mistreating patients. Unfortunately there were few options because of the severity of the need. One quality hospital surfaced to offer help, but they wanted a tremendous amount of money. The mother was willing to do what she could, but the hospital requirements were just too much. They had pretty much given up all hope of finding a place that would help her get the care that she needed.

But God….

When all of their options had failed, God came through. Out of the blue the hospital agreed to take her and wasn’t haggling over the money. We can’t explain it. There is no logical or monetary reason that they should have helped, but they did.

I was thinking of a few scriptures (and there are many) that drive this point home:

Luke 1:37 For nothing will be impossible with God.

2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

Philippians 4:19 For my God will meet ALL your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.

Next time your back is against the wall, remember….But God. He is with us, for us, and able to do what no man can do.

Shalom!

Daniel Skognes
