… you asked GOD for help and he gave you the victory. GOD is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to him. (‭‭2 Chron 16:8)

I’m sure we’ve all heard stories of people who have given their last penny in a church offering and GOD (somehow) gave them back many pounds. Well … I remember that it happened to me too!

We’d just moved to a town over 250 miles away from our families so that I could study under the awesome Teacher John McKay at a Bible College.

As students we were expected to attend every Sunday evening service and one Sunday I was ‘semi-listening’ to a Preacher talking about trusting GOD with your finances and when it came to the offering I looked at my very last £10 note. Thoughts were raging around my head, “DON’T BE STUPID,” “YES, BE BOLD, TRUST ME.”

In the end I didn’t gently place the £10 note into offering as much as crumpled it up in anger and threw it in, all the time murmuring something unpleasant…

I walked home in sullen silence after the service, brooding over my abject stupidity and wondering how I was going to break the news of it to my wife. As I walked down the moonlit path to our door, I noticed a bunch of shopping bags outside the door.

Someone had bought us enough shopping for a month!!! And inside one of the bags had placed 5 £10 notes!

I was sincerely grateful – and extremely humbled. ❤️
