Rescued By A Raven
“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches
in glory by Christ Jesus” -Philippians 4: 19.
years ago, a
German peasant named Dobry lived in a village near Warsaw. Because of
unforeseen financial problems, he had not been able to pay his rent and the landlord was
threatening to evict him. Dobry pleaded for more time, but the landlord
told him that the next
day he and his family would be turned
out into the snow.
the church bells chime for evening prayer,
Dobry and his loved ones knelt to ask the Lord to supply their
needs. After prayer they rose to their
feet and sang the words
of an old hymn: “Commit thou all thy
griefs and ways into His hands.”
As they finished singing,
they heard a strange tapping
at the window. Dobry opened it and found a raven that his grandfather had tamed many years before. In its beak was a
valuable ring. It had been lost that day by the king who was visiting the town.
Dobry returned it, and the king rewarded him with enough money to build a house of his own.
always provide in such a dramatic way. But
such experiences encourage us.
He is alive.
He knows our needs. He will provide.
If you are God’s child and you’re facing a crisis, remember, the Lord still has His unexpected “ravens of supply” to meet your deepest need.
He clothes the lilies, feeds the birds;
Would He to you then pay less heed?
Look up to Him with prayerful heart,
He will supply your every need. -Renfrow
