No limits

Bible Reading: Read Ephesians 4:4-10

Jacob had been wearing the same pair of shoes for five years, and they
were literally disintegrating on his feet. Though there are roughly 140 of
us at this prison, death row has only twelve jobs available, each paying
$2.80 per week. A pair of shoes costs $40.00, and Jacob is unemployed.
Recently, Jacob needed to leave the prison to see a doctor. While Jacob
was waiting to go out, another prisoner being transferred to a different
prison put a brand new pair of shoes on the counter and said, ‘Give
these to someone who needs them.’ Technically, the officer was
supposed to throw them away because prisoners are not allowed to
give other prisoners gifts, but she felt moved to ask Jacob his shoe size.
The shoes were a perfect fit. Jacob had been praying for God to provide
for him and trusted that God would. Sometimes we put limits on what
God can do because we focus on the ‘normal’ sources from which our
needs are met. But God is limitless and can meet our needs in
unexpected ways.
Prayer: Dear God, help us to trust you to provide for our needs. Amen
