A proof of God’s loving care
“And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; while they are yet speaking, I will hear” (Isaiah 65:24)
A sister in the Lord shares the experience she made with her family at the end of the 19th century:
An unforgetable proof of God's loving care came to us as a family about this time, when my parents were face to face with a serious financial crisis. In that situation Isaiah 65:24 was literally fulfilled: "Before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear."
At that time, it is necessary to state, we depended on a quarterly income, which came through my mother's lawyer in England. Unusual circumstances had so drained our resources that we found ourselves, in the middle of the quarter, with barely sufficient to meet a week's needs. My dear mother assured us that the Lord would provide; that he would not forsake those who put their trust in him.
That very day a letter came from the lawyer in England, enclosing a draft for a sum ample to meet our needs till the regular remittance should arrive. This unexpected and timely draft proved to be a bonus, which did not occur again.
