Devo Prosperity Part 2
Psalm 18:25 (NIV)
25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful,
Becky and I were married a short time. We were living in a mobile home in a field on her parent’s farm, with our first child. It was not comfortable by any means, but we were happy. God had showed me he had a house for us. We were making very little. No salary to buy a house. We could not afford rent. Nevertheless we looked under cushions on the couch, in draws, and anywhere we could to find change to buy gas to go looking for our house. I kid you not we came up with less than two dollars, bought gas and went looking to buy our house God showed me. We went pretty far in our 1980 ford Pinto. If you don’t know what that is don’t ask. You’re not missing anything. Anyway back to our life. We were running out of gas and opted to go home instead of pushing the car. A few miles from home Becky says to turn around she saw a house. I saw tall weeds and trees that were very untrimmed. We turned around and sure enough there was a house. Me being the optimist I was said “wait there is a huge barn and it looks as though there is land with this house we can’t afford this”. We couldn’t afford anything including gas. I called because she persisted. Turned out I knew the realtor and he had been a teacher of mine in High School. We got along great. He said this is my mother’s place. It is a three bedroom farm house, barn and five acres. My heart sank. I asked how much. He said I must tell you first. She wants to carry the note, she needs the income. She only wants a hundred dollars down and wants monthly payments. She will charge you 4% less than the bank in interest if you are interested. I said I will take it but I have no credit. He said that is OK Jeff I will vouch for you. I know you will pay it. I got $100 extra dollars that Friday in my check and bought it Monday. Now only God could do that. One hour later people were lining up to buy the house, but we already had a contract on it and got it. Now only God could do that. We were never late on one payment and sold it two years later at a tremendous profit and God moved us to Florida. Faith and prosperity go hand in hand. Why am I telling you this? Well stick with me.
