While my mother was pursuing her dream of owning the farm and praying for guidance, she would tell those that asked that she needed prayers and "pennies from Heaven." Well, it turns out pennies started to appear on the ground. You may not think this to be an unusual occurrence, but as the process proceeded and a value was set and banks were contacted, the pennies that appeared started to be nickels, dimes, and quarters.
This is reminiscent of the scripture from Matthew. In the scripture, Jesus and Peter needed to pay a tax, but didn't have the money. Jesus was not worried. He knew God would provide. In Jesus' case, the money came from the mouth of a fish, not pennies from Heaven. However, God knew the need and provided what was necessary.
In the end, my mother was able to purchase the family farm and keep it in the family. While the purchase price wasn't entirely funded by pennies from Heaven, God reassured us that He would help overcome any obstacles. Prayers were answered, little by little, one step at a time. Glory to God for His faithfulness!
Are you facing a challenge? Pray to God, then have faith. He has a plan and He will walk with you each step of the way...even guiding you with His blessings or pennies from Heaven!
Thank You for hearing our prayers and answering our prayers. Thank You for walking with us each step of the way. Please help us to be patient and to follow where You lead us. Thank You for pennies from Heaven. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
