Offertory Reading

OCTOBER 01 - LOCAL CHURCH BUDGET

As new believers in Christ, the Silva household had to meet many obligations. Then a lawsuit summons came in the mail concerning an accident caused by a vehicle Mr. Silva had sold some time earlier. This legal notice added to the financial obligations the family was experiencing and drove them to their knees. They knew of no option but to place themselves in God’s hands.

After hours of prayer, the family rose from their knees. Mr. Silva went to search for the papers that would prove that they had sold the car long before the accident mentioned in the summons. As Mr. Silva paged through the legal papers, a checkbook register fell out. The checkbook was for a long-forgotten loan. Inside was a Bible passage: “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” (Is. 41:10).

Mr. Silva took the forgotten checkbook to the bank to be updated and discovered that money remained in the account—enough money to cover the family’s needs that month. The family was convinced that the Lord had allowed the lawsuit papers to be delivered in order for this checkbook register to be found. God, once more, supplied for the needs of the family.

As followers of Christ, many hardships, trials, and tribulations will come. It is always safe to trust God, even in the midst of hard times. May God bless your faithful giving!
