A Christmas Miracle
Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things! The strong right arm of the Lord is raised in triumph. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things!
This past week we witnessed a HUGE miracle at America’s Keswick. We were facing our weekly payroll and we were short by almost $32,000.
On Tuesday the staff gathered and we cried out to God for a miracle only traceable to HIS hand, and on Thursday afternoon God showed up in a miraculous way.
My wife went to the staff mailroom to get our mail and the envelope pictured was in our box. It obviously had gone through the processing at the Post Office, but note there was no stamp! No postage due sticker.
In that letter was a check from a very dear friend for $2000 earmarked for payroll. Moments after opening the mail, my phone rang with the news that paperwork was being sent and if we could turn the paperwork around in a couple of day, the caller would be issuing a check for $31,907.16.
Too be honest, I almost dropped the phone, and if my teeth were false, they might just have fallen out. God gave us a Christmas miracle and it came just at the right time.
He did another miracle even bigger than that when He sent His Son in the form of a baby. The apostle Paul wrote: “ But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.” Galatians 4:4.
I am a slow learner – but when I get it – God is never usually early, He is never late – He may show up at 11:59 – but He’s always right on time. Thank You, Lord, for this amazing Christmas miracle. – Dr. Bill Welte is President/CEO of America’s Keswick

Think About This: “Friend, I hope when you feel yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place, you’ll see it as Christ the Rock. Then you can lay down your head and find rest in that hard place. One Christ the solid rock we rest and stand!”
