He Knows UsWednesday, October 26, 2016
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
This past summer I drove home to NY in my 1998 Ford Mustang. I was a huge fan of this car for a long time, but with over 174k miles, I was ready for an upgrade.
I was praying and seeking the Lord for wisdom on what car I should get next (He cares about the details). I wanted a black 2 door Honda Accord Coupe.
I spent HOURS and HOURS looking online for one I could afford.
The end of the summer was quickly approaching and there was no Honda Coupe insight.
My dad and I headed over to a local dealer to see if they had anything... We were looking at some of the cars available but nothing was standing out. Finally, my dad spotted a Hyundai Santa Fe in the back of the lot. I was NOT excited. This car already had a deposit on it and it wasn't what I was looking for. It seemed all wrong, it wasn't what I was expecting at all.
The dealer said we could take it for a drive just in case...
We ended up leaving with that car at a price that was less than what I sold my Mustang for.
In the past couple of months, the Lord has shown me OVER and OVER again how much of a blessing this car is! I have PLENTY of room for people and activities! It is AWESOME! I am so thankful the Lord didn't give me the car I was expecting, He gave me a BETTER one!
He is so faithful and has such good gifts for us! They may not be wrapped the way we were expecting, but they are FAR better than what we could have thought of. Trust Him! He knows your heart, He knows your desires. He is a good Father and has GOOD gifts for you!
