Trusting God for provision for the residents of …

Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him;

Psalm 41:1

Hi everyone,

I want to say upfront that I do not know any of the people who live in the building, but I became aware of their awful situation through an article in the paper that a friend shared.

I am praying that some of you will take the time to watch the video that documents the inhumane ways these residents (most elderly and disabled) are being treated by the new owners of this building.

I am passing on their information in hopes that you can prayerful consider sharing this information with your friends and/or giving towards getting the residents into a (hopefully) better place to live.

I am also linking (below) to the article in the newspaper that I read and the residents you tube channel (which documents everything).

Please consider reading and sharing these as well. Thank you! And God Bless you!!

Father God, I am praying for the residents of this building. I know that you see them, and trust that you will make a way to provide new homes for them. I also pray that more and more people will see their plight so that the city will take action against Dimension Townhouses, (Dimension Properties / Dimension Property Management). The residents have been through so much, I pray that you will bring about a good outcome for them. In Jesus name Amen!

Psalm 41:1 Blessed is the one who considers the poor! In the day of trouble the Lord delivers him.

Three ways to test if God is really telling you to step out in that area…

If you are wondering if God is really telling you to “do that thing” ask yourself:

Is it Biblical? God would never tell you to do something that is outside of scripture.

Is it Scary? Often God tells you do something outside of your comfort zone in order to grow your faith. And to get you to lean on him for guidance and support.

Is it Satisfying? As we prayerfully step out into what God is leading us to do we will feel a soul satisfaction.

Stepping out into new things can be terrifying. But God is good and as you lean on him he will direct your path.

Remember, God sees you! Even if you step off the path on accident (or on purpose) he will get you back on the right path as you trust in him.

Life is short Go For it with God!

My List

One thing that I have come to understand clearly in my walk with God, is that sometimes it is easy to trust Him and sometimes it is easy to forget to trust him.

God, in his infinite wisdom, knows that. That is why he wants us to remember to remember how good He is.

Look at what He told Moses to do.

Moses said to the people, “Remember this day in which you went out from Egypt, from the house of slavery; for by a powerful hand the Lord brought you out from this place. And nothing leavened shall be eaten. On this day in the month of Abib, you are about to go forth. It shall be when the Lord brings you to the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Hivite and the Jebusite, which He swore to your fathers to give you, a land flowing with milk and honey, that you shall observe this rite in this month.

Exodus 13:3-10

I love what one scholar says of that passage.

Whatever they may become in the better times ahead, the people of Israel are never to forget what they were. Their plight in Egypt is described graphically as בית עבדים, literally, “house of slaves… Their rescue from that plight, they must recall, was made possible only by the strength of Yahweh’s power, attested by the whole range of the proof-of-Presence sequence of the ten mighty acts.

John I. Durham, Exodus, vol. 3, Word Biblical Commentary (Dallas: Word, Incorporated, 1987), 178.

And in another Passage it says

“Observe the month of Abib and celebrate the Passover to the Lord your God, for in the month of Abib the Lord your God brought you out of Egypt by night.

Deuteronomy 16/:1

The month of Abib was the first month of the year in the ancient Hebrew calendar. So, basically January.

God wanted them to remember where they came from (slavery) and who delivered them (God) because he knew that they would face challenges. And without their remembrance of how strong and powerful He is, they would easily give into despair.

We are in a new year. One that will be filled with both new joys and also new challenges. If we are to be able to face those challenges head on, then we must take time to remind ourselves of what Gods has done for us.

Consider writing a list of everything God has brought you through (or a partial list of the top things) and then looking at that list daily and thanking him for all that he has done.

This will build our faith armour and when faced with a decision, or an adversity, it will be easier to not despair and to walk through the open door that God has placed before you..
