Have faith – God provides what we need

As we approach Thanksgiving, I’m grateful that my Heavenly Father has always supplied all of my needs. The Bible says that if you have faith, He will. He promises to deliver and always does. Believe me, my faith gets tested often and, at times, I fail the test.

Faith is something we have a lot of when things are going good, but when needed, we forget who is in charge of our lives.

I’ll never forget over 25 years ago, two weeks before Thanksgiving, when I didn’t know what to do because I was financially busted. I had no one to turn to.

A couple of days after I woke up at 2 o’clock one morning and told God I was tired and about to give up. I said, “If I’m not doing Your will, I’m ready to go home.”

Two days later, a lady from Missouri called me at 7:30 in the morning. “Are you Harold Keller with Get High on Life?” she asked.

“Yes, ma’am.”

“Do you remember me?” I didn’t until she reminded me that four years ago I met with her and her husband at Shoney’s in LaPlace. She continued, “I still have the Get High on Life card you gave me and decided to call, because this morning as I was praying God told me you needed some money.”

“No,” I said with pride. “I’m OK.” (Keep in mind it was just two days prior that I asked God for help.)

“I’m glad you’re doing well,” she said, “but I have to listen to my God.”

She sent me a check for $3,000. I needed $2,700 just to survive for a while. Two years later, she sent me a check for $10,000.

As I was reminded of God’s faithfulness over the years, I had to repent and ask God to forgive me for being worried about my finances.

 

If you have any questions, or comments, please write to Get High on Life, P.O. Drawer U, Reserve, LA 70084 or call me at 985-652-8477.
