God’s Hand Moved

March 10th 2010

Today I read on Addison Road’s website that they have received a huge outpouring of support from the body of Christ.  That all of their needs have been met following the RV fire that happened on March 6th.  It amazes me each time I see how the body of Christ responds to the needs of those in it, how those needs are met, and how those who receive the help are always amazed by what is poured out on them.

God’s hand moved.  He moved his hand in the body of Christ so that the members in it would fill the need of the one who had the need.  When the need arose, there were those in the body who were obedient when God called upon them to act.  Those who bore the burden along side the ones in need answered with a “yes Lord” when God called upon them to act.  God ensures that the needs in the body are met by moving those who meet them.  In doing so God is acting on behalf of the one who has the need.  If you are the one with the need, that means He is acting on your behalf when your need is met by the body of believers. Yeah-that’s the way it works.  There is a need, God moves to ensure it is filled, the body answers God, the need gets filled.

Wow. To think that God would act on my behalf to move the body of believers to fill a need I would have!  So, if you have ever had a need filled by the body of believers, it is because God has moved to ensure your need was met.  He considers your need important enough to act upon it to ensure it gets filled.  He considers you important enough to ensure your needs get filled.  Wow, how important does that make you feel?  God considers you important enough to act upon your needs.  Humbled-I feel humbled that God would think to move on my behalf, since after all, He is choosing to do so out of Love.

It is that same Love he acted out of when He met our most desperate need, forgiveness.  Sending Christ, who died to suffer for us, and who rose again to defeat death so we would have life.  Meeting a need, that is what God does, meets our needs.  Even when we didn’t know it, He met them.
