Faith Moment
July 30, 2012

At the age of forty-seven, Nick Thomas found himself unemployed and under tremendous financial pressure. Though he had had a successful career in the Air Force and the insurance business, some reversals had set him back and left him with no place to go. The stress was overwhelming.

Nick’s wife, Liz, made their situation a matter of prayer. She was in church one morning praying about their dilemma, when she thought she could almost hear the words, "Make the mustard." Her family had a mustard recipe from Russia, and every Christmas she made gift jars of mustard for her friends.

Nick and Liz decided to listen to the voice. She prepared a substantial amount of mustard. They packaged it and then called on a local cheese shop. The manager tasted it and immediately bought out their inventory. Within three months, they had cracked the highly competitive New York major deli market, and their financial situation began to turn around.  Because Nick and Liz committed their troubles to prayer and looked expectantly to God for guidance, he gave them direction.

We face an uncertain future in a chaotic world, but there is no reason for despair.  When we don’t know where to turn or what path to take, God stands willing and ready to help:  “If you need wisdom—if you want to know what God wants you to do—ask him, and he will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking.James 1:5

With Love
