I started attending Way Ministry household fellowships during my last year of college. I was going to school full-time, and I was working part-time: nights and weekends. I wanted to take the Foundational Class, but between school, work, and studying, I could not see how I could do it. I didn’t have the money nor the time.
When a Foundational Class presentation came up, I went to it in spite of thinking there was no way I could be in the next class. The Word of God taught during that presentation set my heart on fire. I learned that Jesus Christ came so that we could have a more abundant life and that God answers prayer when we pray according to His Word and believe. I decided that I needed to learn the Word of God taught in that class in order to live with power and abundance. After the power-packed teaching, I learned that a class was starting in a few days. I would need to have my fee paid and make a commitment to be at each session (evenings and weekends) by the next day.
On the drive home, all I could think about was, who can I borrow money from? And how could I get the time off from my new job? Then I remembered the powerful Word I had just heard.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
During that drive home, I said to the friend who was undershepherding me, “I know God is going to get me the money I need tonight.” When we got to my apartment, I checked my mailbox, and there was a letter. In the letter was a check for the exact amount I needed to register for the class! And when I went to work the next evening, I told my supervisor about the wonderful class I needed to be in and the evenings and weekend days I needed off. After previously warning all of us part-time employees not to even ask for any time off during the busy holiday season, she said, “OK, I can make it work”!
When we believe God’s Word, claim His promises, and walk out with boldness, our loving heavenly Father meets our every need every time.
