Walking by Faith, Not by Sight
Janet Perez Eckles
It was 84 degrees in Orlando a few days ago. Yet, I carried my jacket inside the local movie theater. The interior is like an igloo. And the fact that I’m always cold doesn’t help.
We walked in and ran into the friendly manager. As we chatted with her, I asked her, “Why do you guys keep the temperature so low? I think next time I’ll bring my earmuffs.”
She laughed. “The temperature is set as if the theater was full,” she said. “Even if there are 5 people, the temperature setting never changes.
I put on my jacket as hubby and I headed to find our seats.
That night under my cozy covers, I had a comforting thought. Contrary to the one-setting thermostat at the theatre, God doesn’t have one setting to His love. He’s provision is unique to each of us, our situation and our challenges.
He doesn’t give us less than we need. He’s not a moment late or a moment too soon. His love is uniquely customized according to the emotional coldness we might feel on that moment, on that day or season.
Have you been there? As you read this, you might be in the ditch of hardship, yet He has the rope long enough to get you out. That’s because He’s so divinely aware of all our struggles. He knows the degree of our pain and has the exact amount of comfort. He knows the depth of our financial failures and has the perfect provision to lift us up. And when overwhelmed by life’s trials, He has the right quantity and customized solutions.
