Pennies from Heaven

He took him outside and said, “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” (Genesis 15:5 NIV)

Have you ever heard of this offer:

Which would you prefer: a million dollars or a penny a day, doubled each day for thirty days? Most people want the million dollars, but they would be missing out on an additional four million dollars. 

I thought about this life lesson when reading about Abraham and Sarah. God went way beyond what they could pray for. He not only answered a resounding YES, he said they would be blessed with offspring beyond the stars. They were looking narrowly at the immediate and completely ignoring the future. God looks at the past, the present, and the future. He will answer our prayers, our moans, our dispair, with a life beyondl anything we could imagine. 

Just like our minds can't wrap our minds around doubling a penny every day for 30 days, we can't getting our minds around Gods. Wonderful blessings. 

Praise God he is wildly in love with us and he will bless us beyond the stars. Praise God he loved us ALL so much he offered his son, an act beyond my wildest imagination. Thank you Lord for your endless love and wonderful blessings. My life is amazing, not because of my own works, but your powerful hand!
