About three months ago, Beatriz Verdecia was driving through the Atlanta, Georgia, streets on her way to the Christian book store. Her mind was puzzled. She had been thinking of ways to improve the way she and her husband, Miguel, managed their finances at home. She was sharing her thoughts with God. Her goal was to start saving money, but that never seemed to be possible. In addition, Miguel was accustomed to giving Bibles away, which is why she was heading to the Christian book store.
She was happy about Miguel’s eagerness to share his faith, but she thought they were spending a lot of money on Bibles, considering that the price for each Bible is $35.99, and Miguel’s list of acquaintances that did not have a Bible kept growing; hence, she was heading to buy two more Bibles.
As she kept driving, she glanced at the Sam’s Club store. She had not planned to stop there, but for some reason, she decided to do so. She went into the store, and browsed around for groceries. All of a sudden, something caught her attention: there was a sign indicating Bibles for sale. “What in the world!” She thought. “Since when did Sam’s start selling Bibles?” She approached the stand where the Bibles were displayed, and found that the Bible she was going to buy for $35.99 was $15.99. She froze. Her eyes were wide open. It seemed like God was telling her, “I am behind Miguel’s new project, and I am more than willing to help!”
Beatriz bought the Bibles, and went back home. When Miguel was getting them ready to give away, he pulled the $15.99 price stickers off, and saw underneath each of them was another sticker for $35.99.
God spoke to Beatriz that day, and guided her to get the tools she needed to fulfill the mission. She and Miguel felt blessed.
“Now may the God of peace…… equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen,” Hebrews 13:20, NIV.
And, He will!
