God, the Supplier of All Things Including Keys
Do you ever think that small details are not worth bothering God about?
Last week, our family "misplaced" a key to my car. I had one on my key ring, but the other one (my husband's), had been misplaced. He had taken it off his key ring and left it on the counter while we were out of state, so our kids could use the car while we were gone.
After we got home from being away, we noticed the key gone. Of course, no-one knew where it was.
If you haven't priced keys lately, those with a chip in them are quite expensive to replace. I decided it was time to pray. (Note to self: start praying the first thing and not as a last resort)
For several days, I searched and looked. I went through pockets and purses. I combed through piles of mail and drawers of junk. No key.
"God, please help us find that key. Show me where to look."
Fast forward to yesterday afternoon. I got in the car to go home. I took out my key ring and inserted the key into the car ignition, then stopped....mouth wide open.
The key I had inserted into the ignition was black. My key was grey. There was a grey key on my key ring as well. So where did the black key come from? Rick's key was also grey.
I sat there for a moment just trying to make sense of it all.
That evening, I told my husband and family about it. Rick said, "My key is grey." I said, "I know, but this black key works. God must have made us a new key and stuck it on my key ring."
You just can't make this stuff up, people. NONE of us know where this crazy black key came from.
We still don't know where the grey one went, but the black one works, so guess it's our replacement. Lol
Never underestimate the power of God, nor His provision in the big stuff and the small...even things like car keys.
