She Set Her Eyes on the Prize-She Won

Tonight was the beginning of the fall/winter bowling league. In this league there are different categories to win money. Highest scratch (no handicap), highest handicap to name a few.

A young lady came tonight determined to win all the prizes. She needed the money in the worst way.

One might say how can she afford to bowl. All the members were blessed with the fees paid by a benefactor.

The young lady set her eyes on the prize, focused and hit her mark with every release of the ball. She accomplished what she set out to do. She won in every category except the men’s. When it was over she won more than she thought she would.

We never know what God is going to use to answer our prayer. We better keep our eyes on Him.

He fed a widow and her son with her flour and oil being extended until the drought was over. (I Kings 17) Although she was at the end of her supplies she trusted and obeyed God and He provided.

Another widow and her sons filled up many borrowed vessels with a continual flow oil until the vessels ran out to pay off the debt of her deceased husband and live off the rest. She followed the direction of the Prophet and the miracle kept her sons from being imprisoned. (II Kings 4)

Don’t close God in a box because He’ll surprise you every time.

Question: When was the last time God answered your prayer or supplied your need in a way you least expected?
