Pastor Mike began with information about a way to help Camp Fire victims and then about the daily things we trust in the physical world, but ... the recorder wasn't working.  So here is the announcement about Camp Fire help:

Here is Pastor Mike's story from his bulletin "Good Morning" message:

Charles Spurgeon told this story of his grandfather James and his faith in God. “He had a large family and a very small income, but he loved his Lord, and he would not have given up his preaching of the gospel for anything.” One day the cow on which the family relied for milk for the children suddenly died. James Spurgeon’s wife was greatly concerned, but he said, “God said He would provide, and I believe He could send us fifty cows if He pleased.” On that same day, a group met in London—a group James Spurgeon did not know—that wanted to help meet the needs of poor pastors. They raised a large sum of money, and began sending it to different pastors in need to help their families. When they reached the end of the list, there were still five pounds left. One man suggested sending it to James Spurgeon. Another said, “No, let’s not send just five pounds. Let me add five more to go with it.” Others joined in, and the day after his cow died, James Spurgeon received twenty pounds in the mail!

The sad truth is that we don’t experience the joy of God’s provision because we don’t exercise the faith He gives us to wait for Him. If we get ahead of God, we miss the blessings that only He can provide.
