35th -- The Burning Hut


This is a good story that shows that even when we feel that God has 
left us and doesn't hear our prayers, He is right there by our side 
and will meet all our needs according to His riches and Glory. Not 
on our time, but on His time. Remember God's ways are not our ways, 
so keep trusting the Lord. (Isaiah 55:8-9)

Romans 8:27-28 "Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the
Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the 
will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those 
who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose."


The only survivor of a shipwreck was washed up on a small, uninhibited
island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he 
scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming. Exhausted, he 
eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him 
from the elements, and to store his few possessions. But then one day, 
after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in 
flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; 
everything was lost. He was stunned with grief and anger. "God, how could
you do this to me!" he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that 
was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I
was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke 
signal," they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad. But we shouldn't
lose heart, because God is at work in our lives, even in the midst of pain
and suffering. Remember, next time your little hut is burning to the
ground----it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God. 

For all the negative things we have to say to ourselves, God has a
positive answer for it:

I hope and pray this message along with the scriptures have encouraged you
enough to know that God is with you and will meet all your needs according
to His riches and glory.
