God will give you what you need, when you need it. I have a funny story to share with you. My husband Bob and I have our own IT Business, InnovativeTeks. For the last two years, since my leg broke, he has been the one driving all around doing all these jobs for different businesses while I have been in PT and recovery mode. What a man of God. He trusts God to provide work each and every day and is flexible enough to not lose it when things change.
So, yesterday was Monday – yeah a real Monday. He had 3 jobs over towards Milwaukee – which is over an hour from our little country home. We have a Toyota Camry for our work car, and he has a fold up ladder and his tools in the trunk – usually. But remember, this was Monday. The day before, because we play together at church, he had taken out his tools and the ladder and put them in our shed to fit the guitar and music bag, and of course the kids. (No we didn’t put them in the trunk!)
Anyway, he gets to Milwaukee and sends me this picture: His text says, “Oh boy, weeeee…”. This is a $15,000 Server that has been down with 16 Hard Drives inside. My response, “May God give you favor!”. Then he goes to the trunk – no tools. Great. God speaks to his heart, “Everything you need is already here.”
So Bob digs in the trunk and finds a screwdriver and a pen. And goes into this big business, who shall remain unnamed, with a screwdriver and a pen. After talking to the Manager he finds out the device has been down for over a month. It was new and it has never worked. They have had multiple people there who make well over $100,000/year trying to fix it. So Bob prays, “Lord, show me.” The system did not see all the hard drives – even though they were already there.
Long story short, God gave him wisdom. It was a script error. There was nothing wrong with the motherboard or the computer. It had everything it needed, but the script did not “see” all the hard drives. Bob did what he does with God’s wisdom, and changed the script. And he fixed it – with a screwdriver and a pen!
It makes me wonder – We already have the Holy Spirit – the power of God inside of us.
How many of us have hidden hard drives?
The script for our lives has been rewritten with the Blood of Jesus.
Everything we already need is in us.
Let’s stop running the old script – we are restored – by the Blood of Jesus – all it took was a screwdriver and a pen!
