When they went intorepparttar kitchen, right byrepparttar 127024 back door there was a barrel. What a surprise! When they had gone upstairs it was not there. As they looked at it they noticed that it had been sent fromrepparttar 127025 United States.

"Look," said Aunt Joe, "It'srepparttar 127026 mission barrel. My husband must have brought it while we were upstairs and we did not hear it."

They eagerly opened uprepparttar 127027 barrel and do you know what they saw? ... They saw shirts and pants; blouses and skirts; socks and shoes. They eagerly tookrepparttar 127028 clothes out ofrepparttar 127029 barrel and clear atrepparttar 127030 bottom there was a quilt. It was a beautiful quilt. It was a thick quilt. It looked like it would keep a bed very warm. They quickly took repparttar 127031 quilt upstairs and it just fitrepparttar 127032 bed. It was evenrepparttar 127033 right size.

"See," said Aunt Joe, "God does ownrepparttar 127034 quilts on a thousand hills and He can get them delivered wherever He needs them."

When they got back downstairs, they looked closer atrepparttar 127035 barrel. They noticed that it had been shipped over two months earlier fromrepparttar 127036 United States. How did it arrive just in time? You know what I think? I think that God whispered in a ladies ear, "Would you like to have some fun with me? There is a missionary in Africa that needs a quilt. If you start making it now, we can get it there just in time." And that is what happened. That lady started making that quilt and put it inrepparttar 127037 mission barrel. That way it could get there just in time to surprise Aunt Joe and Alice.

When you need something, be sure to think of God. He owns everything onrepparttar 127038 earth and can supply every need that you have. Also, don't forget to listen for His voice. You might berepparttar 127039 next one He calls on to share in His fun.

Finally, verse 33 is worth committing to memory. This is especially true in today’s society. We want to acquire as much materially as possible, and in some cases non-tangibles, such as fame and power. At times, we may pursue material possessions, and non-tangibles torepparttar point that we get dangerously close to compromising our relationship with God. Verse 33 can help us to maintainrepparttar 127023 proper focus in our lives. Where do you place God in your life?
